Week Four: Isaiah Maynard’s Cross Country Ride

If I'm with someone, like Erik or Brendan and Stef we will talk most of the day. We talk like we aren't strangers. About our family, personal struggles, relationships, goals in life, future plans... We open up like we know each other. It's like the biking breaks down the walls between us. I love it.

Great Island Couples: Tim and Eileen Maley

This past winter we spent many evenings in front of an open fire in the wood stove, fully aware of just feeling contented. We’re probably between crises of some sort — who isn’t — but there’s a strong feeling of being settled, and we are ready to roll with the next punch that comes along.

Can I burn a tick off me?

C’mon folks, it is just a tick bite. It is not like getting bitten by a taipan (a snake with a highly lethal bite) in the Australian outback, where there is some justification in immediately amputating the bitten body part.

Gone Fishin’: Fluke fishing is not glamorous or ritzy, just fun

A cable news pundit described the Island as 'ritzy and glamorous.' I suppose that impression would be accurate if one’s world only encompassed kiss-kiss cocktail parties and swank dinners in summer echo chambers. It sure does not describe the VFW Fluke Derby, and for that I am very grateful.
