In August of 2017, Dexter Robinson and three others backpacked the Maine Appalachian Trail 100-mile wilderness. The 100-mile wilderness is generally considered the wildest section of the entire 2,187-mile Appalachian Trail that runs from Springer Mountain, Georgia, to Mt. Katahdin, Maine. In this presentation, Dexter will share his preparation and experience backpacking this section of the Appalachian Trail using photos and a gear display.

Dexter Robinson is an avid four-season hiker. He is a longtime Appalachian Mountain Club member and for many years led AMC hikes and backpacks to various locations both local and throughout New England. He has climbed all 67 of the New England four thousand foot mountains as well as the NH four thousand foot mountains in winter. He recently completed hiking Mt. Washington in every month. He has also hiked several mountains out west over 10,000 feet. Dexter is retired from the IT world and lives with his wife and daughter in Hanson.
