An extra winter suit is a must for this time of year. Mikey knows all too well how painful it is to pull back on a freezing wet winter suit. Wintertime in New England comes with many benefits—Mikey DeTemple and I have found that uncrowded winter swells are one of them. When a Nor’easter kicks up on the radar, one of us is pretty quick to call the other to start laying some plans.
This particular storm was no different, aside from the fact that we already had a few feet of snow on the ground to start, which just added some excitement for Mikey’s drive north from NYC to meet me at the Maine coast. While there were plenty of unknowns, as there are bound to be when dealing with winter weather, one thing was certain: once Mikey escaped NYC, he knew he wouldn’t be fighting crowds in the Northland.
