They have hiked extensively in New England for more than 30 years and shared treks and mountaineering adventures throughout the United States, eastern Canada, Scotland, France, Switzerland, and Costa Rica. Both have an abiding love of the outdoors. When not hiking in the mountains, they enjoy kayaking, canoeing, cycling, and skiing. Together, they operate a taxconsulting business.

A Certified Public Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor, Nancy is a graduate of the University of Maine. She is the erstwhile Executive Director of the Maine Brain Injury Foundation and a recently retired bank auditor.

    Ron, a graduate of the University of Maine, is retired from the Internal Revenue Service. Formerly a Registered Maine Guide, he was active in the AMC as canoe chair and a trip leader. Currently, he is president of the PPCS and a frequent trip coordinator. In 1997, he was the 38th person certified by the AMC Four Thousand Footer Committee as having climbed the 100 Highest Peaks in New England in the winter. Ron is a freelance writer who has written an outdoor column for a regional newspaper and is currently a regular contributor to several magazines.
