Come On, You Would-Be National Geo Photographers!

It’s been a week since we started our photo contest, and while you wouldn’t know it from Facebook, we’ve received some fantastic shots! There is still more than week to go before this year’s contest comes to a close – so please, please, please submit your photos now! You can submit through Facebook, over email to, or the old-fashioned way, through the mail to Apogee Adventures, PO Box 505, Brunswick, ME 04011.


Your Chance for Fame and General Awesomeness!

Announcing the First Annual Apogee Outstanding Photo Contest! We’re looking for the best of 2010 – so dust off the ol’digital cameras and throw those disposable prints into an envelope and send them in. You can submit pictures in three ways: upload pictures to Facebook, email them to, or snail mail them to us at PO Box 505, Brunswick, ME 04011.

Siamo pronti per Italia!

Saluti a tutti! Kevin and I are back from our whirlwind tour of Umbria and Tuscany. It was a great trip and we are all the more excited to introduce next summer’s Tuscan Service Adventure as our first overseas offering. The bicycling is challenging, but stunning. The vistas are amazing, the sense of history is palpable, and the people warm and welcoming. The food isn’t bad either.

It’s a Tough Job …

…but someone has to do it!

I know, I know – it’s brutal, but Kevin and I are off for Bella Italia on Sunday to scout our newest trip.We are really excited about the forthcoming (drum roll, please) “Tuscan Service Adventure.” The name is slightly misleading because our groups will be seeing some of the fantastic towns in Umbria – and wrapping up in Rome – but “Tuscan/Umbrian/Roman Service Adventure” just doesn’t sound right.
