HEART OF THE BACKCOUNTRY

The A.T. in Maine is wild, spectacularly scenic, challenging and ultimately fulfilling. Maine’s tallest mountain, Katahdin, is typically the beginning or the satisfying end of a thru-hike, a journey by foot of all 2,193 miles of the A.T. that is undertaken by thousands each year.

FILMS

When NZ Merino sheep farmer James McCaughan left the family farm and started traveling and sailing around the globe, he got a phone call from his dad telling him "hey, I'm stuck back here looking after the farm while you're out there traveling and sailing...that was my idea!" so a year later the family purchased a 40ft sailboat and now they take turns on the boat and farm. For 6 months out of the year James and his girlfriend will be sailing and then they swap with his parents and spend 6 months working the family farm. "It's a good work/life balance" says James.
