    “All dreams can happen—you just have to be creative in figuring out how.” Well said, Mike!
    I fondly remember Mike and Tom from my buying days at L L Bean, before they had envisioned and embarked on this epic journey. What a fantastic experience and accomplishment for two longtime friends and outdoor enthusiasts! Check out the short video – amazing.
