Damn Yankee is associated with the Maine Professional Guides Association.

For a variety of outdoor learning courses, we recommend Maine's Outdoor Learning Center.

For some very important safety tips before, during, and after going into the wild, especially for hikers, has some great advice and links to more resources. Please check it out.

For a Maine wilderness lodge that delivers the traditional experience with outstanding hosts, guides, and services, we endorse -Eagle Lodge- on Folsom Pond and -Harry's Lodge- in Molunkus.

For a variety of outdoor activities in the north woods all under one "roof", we recommend the New England Outdoor Center.

For some Internet resources about hiking and exploring other parts of Maine and the world, check The Ultimate Hiking Directory to New England. The site strongly advocates protecting Maine’s natural resources (good) through increased regulation and government ownership (hmmm...), but the links there may be very useful. A site with similarly useful information may be The Complete Hikers' Resource Guide. (Thanks go to some visitors to this site for these two suggestions.)

For information on hiking the great peaks of (dare I even suggest it!?) the Adirondacks, look at the site of the High Peaks 46ers.

For a town of exceptional scenic beauty with an almost unbelievable history, take a side trip some day to visit Benedicta, Maine.

For the region's best all-around source of hunting, fishing, camping, and camp supplies, as well as boats and related equipment it's Two Rivers Canoe and Tackle.

And there is only one LL Bean.
