Congratulations again, Jeff. I admit I groaned a bit at your shoe drop story (oh no!).

Also, as a Maine resident, I give a huge thumbs up to visiting Acadia National Park to climb and hike. I still remember visiting it as my first national park as a kid and being blown away by its beauty.

Thanks for your contributions so far.

Great to "meet" you Jeff.

I too live on a pancake, in the Atlantic coastal plain. 

I can appreciate you passion for the outdoors & for outdoor gear.

Great to have you here at Trailspace, and congratulations on being reviewer of the month!

Hmm all I can think of is you hitting the green belt when away from class and Reimers ranch when you could...I figure Hook EM!!

That's quite a bucket list, or should I say, bathtub list.

Good to have you aboard the Trailspace community train. Choo Choo!

Congrats on the selection.

Congrats, Jeff! Beautiful pic of Banff Nat'l Park. I'd love to visit some Canadian parks at some point. Interesting reviewer prize too! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on those!

Denis: Yes, greenbelt and Reimer's are my usual climbing spots now in college I only bouldered at the climbing gym.  It was a great stress release before a test. 

Daniel: thanks! Banff is amazing. The tower in the background is Grand Sentinel. I want to climb it next time i go.
