  1. Dan, Thank you for introducing me to some of Maine's greatest outdoor experiences. You will always be an expert guide and wise friend. I'll never forget the perfectly quiet, beautiful, and buggy trout ponds or your instruction on how to navigate the rapids of the Kennebec River. Thank you for everything your shared. You will be missed but we will always know where to go to be close to you. Rest in peace friend, we remember you with every perfect cast and frigid exciting but smooth ride.
