Did you see this?

Nearly half of Americans didn’t go outside to recreate in 2018.

Sobering statistics in the Outdoor Participation Report show even kids are staying inside. “We should really be concerned as a nation that we are becoming an indoor nation,” Outdoor Foundation boss Lise Aangeenbrug says.

That’s right almost half of Americans don’t go outside unless they have to! I am decidedly in the other half, no surprise there. Maine Outdoors as a company has been focused on making it easy for families and beginners to get outside for thirty-four years. Providing everything you need for a successful outing. I tell my clients all that they need is a jacket and a smile. Clearly that is not enough!

What else can we do? What obstacles prevent you from spending a part of a day fishing? On a canoe trip? I am committed to reducing those barriers wherever possible and your thoughts are helpful.
