Experience Level


LL Bean hosts a lecture series on Friday evenings from January through April. These are events run by LL Bean. They are here on the MOAC calendar to make membership aware of them. Questions should be addressed to LL Bean. These events are held in the camping department atrium. MOACers often gather for a nightcap after.

After hiking 600 miles, the hand-written words on a rustic campsite privy said it best: ”Willpower is greater than strength or agility.” Most thru-hikers on the 2,190-mile Appalachian Trail would agree. When 24 year-old Chloë Rowse started her solo hike in February of 2018, she was prepared for the tough days. What she didn’t expect was the incredible kindness from the strangers that would make the difference between reaching the top of Mt. Katahdin or surrendering to the harsh realities of the trail.

Join us for an evening of stories about the generosity of “trail angels” – the good samaritans who support hikers year after year along the Appalachian Trail, helping them persevere through the physical and emotional challenges of their journeys.
