Hiya, Welcome (I'm kinda a newbe here too)
But I do hike in the winter a bit, and my friend and I are going this weekend for an overnight, He's picking (its his birthday) but we plan on more this winter and I would like to try to get to Acadia this year too. Been there years ago and loved it, even after i fell through the ice
do you have all the gear, if you do then you dont need a guide, you just need some one to go with!
Today is the Tomorrow you dreamed about Yesterday!
Nothing is impossible, its just a matter of how difficult!
