“Not all those who wander are lost”

J.R.R.Tolkien

Those who attend this program will be treated to a modern-day adventure. Sam Ducharme set out on a 2180 mile, 14 state backpacking trip from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt. Katahdin Maine. During his six month journey, he documented the rugged beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, the wildlife, the hardships encountered on the trail, as well as the people, culture, and humanity at its finest. Come join him as he takes you through the trail towns, over the mountaintops, and through the backcountry. The images and stories will leave you with a renewed awe of the beauty of our country and its people.

See his gear, how he cooked, and hear what it is like sleeping in a hammock for six months through three seasons.

You will also hear how Sam returned to the trail the following year, connecting with aspiring Thru-Hikers, paying it forward, and his return to the summit of Katahdin one year later.

Sam Ducharme is a retired K9 Officer and is a lifelong resident of Connecticut. He has two adult sons, both serving in the United States Air Force. As an avid outdoorsman, and finding the empty-nest, Sam decided to buy a backpack and a plane ticket to Georgia. From there, he started walking north. With no prior backpacking experience, he learned on the trail. Gear, trail nutrition, enduring the elements, and the logistics involved in a long distance backpacking trip were hard lessons. After 20 years working within Connecticut’s prisons, the search for a positive recharge resulted in a life-changing journey.

Larry Dapsis of the Barnstable County Extension will show and discuss the documentary film "Tick Days". The film addresses a growing and under-recognized health crisis here on the Cape, across New England, and expanding to other states. It's no longer just about Lyme disease. Deer ticks carry new pathogens, such as the Powassan virus. And a new tick, called Lone Star, has established itself on Cape Cod. 

The film was directed and produced by Marnie Crawford Samuelson and Shane Hofeldt. It features Barnstable County Extension's Larry Dapsis-- part tick detective, part evangelist-- as he tries to protect Cape Codders and visitors from being infected.
