The Club House library

The Club House library

New England Explorers was created to be an outlet of stories, resources and information concerning my past and ongoing adventures, and those of  fellow explorers in the Northeast.  If you’re just an armchair adventurer or a weekend explorer, you are more than welcome to join. We hope to create a resource for not only sharing already found treasures in the Northeast, but also help those who have the appreciation and enthusiasm to make new finds or rediscover old one that have long been lost to the forests.

The sharing of information we do will be selective and in some cases reserved. This is due to the fact that some places visited can be dangerous, have restricted access or is a protected site. The last thing I would want to do is lead an inexperienced hiker, caver or diver to a location that could lead to injury or worse. Also, having good relations with land owners whose property some locations reside within is very important. In many cases we have been asked to not share the location of some of the places we’ve been allowed to visit. In each of those circumstances, though the information leading directly to a location might be reserved, information on how to acquire the skill sets or gain access if possible, will be provided.

While in development the blog will remain completely open and accessible by anyone. Once we have most of the desired features and resource in place we will begin to lock off some of the resource pages. Though the pages and the information we share will be available for everyone, our plan is to make membership to the blog a requirement to gain access to certain hidden features and materials. The membership to the blog is free and requires nothing more than signing up for a WordPress account. Though it currently not a requirement, we still  encourage everyone sign up for membership even during the development of the blog.

    Hi Michael! I am proud New England hiker and nature lover who is, for the next two years, in Southern Texas/Northern Mexico. I have survived lately through your wonderful posts of unexplored or forgotten places and it both makes me long for home, and feel excited about hiking in that area again. I just wanted to thank you for this site! I was also wondering, for places that are accessible by the lay person without endangering those relationships with land owners, will you be posting directions, info for people to retrace your steps? An example would Squaw’s Kitchen which, due to the height and general accessibility of the caves, seems safe for someone with little caving experience? Thanks again for these great articles, they have kept me sane during my time here! Turtle

      Hi Kelly, I’m glad you enjoy out posts. On Facebook you can also find more stories of our adventures. They are posted in a rough sketch style immediately after we get back from where we visited. https://www.facebook.com/Strange.New.England

      As we continue to build the blog we have been adding those places people can visit to our Map Menu. Form that menu you can get the Geo-coordinates of the location or link back to the story. In the cases where coordinates are not enough, send us an email and we’ll add the needed details to the end of the story.

      As for Squaw’s Kitchen, we believe it is on land open to the public. The caves are safe for most but we’re not sure if the way we accessed the land is best since we don’t what the status of the property we crossed is. We will be returning to survey the caves soon, and will find a better entry point to the land. Once we have that we’ll add it to the map menu and add the location of the access point to the end of the story.

      Feel free to share some of your favorite places to visit in New England. Maybe there places we or other readers might be interested in going out to.

      Thanks for reading,
      ~Michael
