A 50-Mile Walk in Maine

Earlier this week we met Cassandra Curley, who is well into her challenge to walk all 50 states in 50 weeks.  She stayed two nights here at Wild Duck as she did her 50 miles in Maine.  We spent a little bit of time with her on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Maine is her 29th state and she plans to complete the contiguous 48 and Alaska before the snow flies.

Cassie is a bundle of energy, walking 16 to 17 miles per day at a rate of 3 miles per hour.  To plot her daily route she uses (you guessed it) app for her iPhone.  Cassie has a web site at

It was fun to meet her and we wish her well.

A couple of weeks ago on our way to Cape Elizabeth we drove past this charming cottage clad in river rock.  On the way home we stopped and I got a few good photos.  The person who did the stone work was a real artisan.

  1. Wow...and I complain about walking my 2 miles every day (plus or minus one or two)! What an inspiration...good for her! I'm looking forward to taking a look at her website!

  2. That is a very impressive goal. I am sure she will meet her target.

  3. Does she have a shoe sponsor?? :)

  4. I s she doing 50 miles in each state?? Wow I am so impressed.
