Beginning in 2010, the Boothbay Harbor couple spent 12 years visiting all of Maine’s post offices – 444 at the time.
They took overnight trips to every corner of the state, from remote islands off the Down East coast to the tip of northern Aroostook County.
At each post office, they got a stamped envelope canceled and postmarked by hand, as proof they were there. So the physical evidence of their adventures fits neatly into an oversized shoe box.
