I have always thought that something should be done to highlight the story of Donn Fendler getting lost on Mount Katahdin. The story is a reminder that the woods can be unpredictable and dangerous. Why not create a safety center somewhere along the way to Baxter State Park and use the story to help better prepare tourists for their visit to Baxter State Park. This center could display pictures and show an abbreviated video depiction of Donn’s story and in conjunction it could provide various types of safety advice, for instance, what to do if you get lost, hurt or come into contact with an angry wild animal, what berries are safe to eat, campfire tips, etc. This could also be a place to sell pertinent books, namely Donn Fendler’s book, and various survival supplies, first and foremost bug spray, ha. Maybe someone has a better idea, but it seems as though something should be done with this fascinating story.
