Maine's Modern-Day Magellan

Retired Bar Harbor dentist Dean Booher is traveling around the eastern U.S. the hard way: by water.

Booher recently completed the first leg of America's Great Loop—described on the America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association website as "the continuous waterway that circumnavigates the eastern portion of North America - along the Atlantic seaboard, across the Great Lakes, through the inland rivers, and around the Gulf of Mexico."

Booher cruised this year down the East Coast, up the Hudson River, and through the Erie Canal to Lake Ontario, where he will resume his journey next season. He expects the entire trip to take six years.
