So I wanted to tell you the story of how I ended up hiking with Loner...
He and I share a common interest in artifact hunting. We have commented on each others YouTube pages (Carolinaarrowheads and Corajeanine) for about a year. He had commented on one of my videos as Loner2012AT and so I subscribed to that page. I did not realize that it was him, lol I did not get to start watching his vids for a while, I kept seeing them in my subscription feed and kept meaning to get around to catching up on them. I finally did, and started leaving comments on his vids. When I realized that I already knew him, I sent him a private message. We started messaging back and forth for a couple of months. This led to phone calls. Then he asked me to come hike with him. One of my favorite quotes is "In twenty years, you will regret the things you didn't do more than the things you did do", so I said yes and started making plans. On September 12, I boarded a plan in Dayton, Ohio and flew into Portland, Maine. Jeff picked me up at the airport and we drove to Monson. We stayed at the Lakeshore House the first night, and then headed out on the trail the next day. We had the most amazing time! For the entire week, we were never apart for more than fifteen minutes. He is the most amazing guy! We had so much fun, I don't think either of us stopped smiling or laughing until we got to the airport a week later. We hiked from Monson back to Caratunk, we climbed Moxie Bald and Pleasant Pond mountain. We got to hike 40 miles together. We spent our last night together in Caratunk at the Sterling Inn. I got to meet some amazing people and see some stunningly beautiful sights. In twenty years, I will definitely not have any regrets about this, other than the fact that I didn't get to hike more
