Farewell to the Ferryman

A true legend has passed. RIP Ferryman.

Write in Front of Me

Stephen J. Longley.  On the Maine section of the Appalachian Trail, he was an indispensable link across the Kennebec River for most hikers, who would otherwise have had to ford the river on foot.  His passing is a loss to the Appalachian Trail community; he will be greatly missed.

  1. Sorry to the community for the loss of Stephen.

    I was hiking in Tuskegee National Forest a couple of weeks ago, and I saw a parked Jeep with an AT sticker. I became jealous, because I would love to hike a part of the trail. Now, after reading this post, I would like to do so even more. I am intrigued by your phrase “Appalachian Trail community” – I didn’t know that there was any kind of community fellowship (for lack of a better term). Makes me want even more to be a part of that. Thanks.
