Hi all, my name is Woodsie. I just graduated from high school last May. I’m 18, and I live in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. What I love about Maine is it has everything… Oceans and lakes, mountains to climb ski and bike, islands all over to explore, and some incredibly diverse weather/seasons. This year I am taking a Gap year where I have already been traveling with NOLS for the first semester. During the course for NOLS, I was in Wyoming, Utah and Colorado in the Rocky Mountains for 3 months. We were hiking, skiing, rock climbing and surviving the wilderness and its harsh environments. Now onto this new adventure and I couldn’t be more stoked to explore, learn, and have this incredible experience with you all.
