The Maine Boys

Tyler Dunham, Seth Brown, and Corey McLean are three lifelong friends, filmmakers, and adventurers from the coastal town of Lincolnville, Maine (pop. 2,042). Currently, they’re brimming with optimistic energy and a desire to accomplish something epic. They’re calling it Love, the Bus.

They met at the age of 2, and life took off from there. As soon as they could walk, they would run– right into an adventure, and more often than not, trouble. As they explored the wide world, searching for excitement in their small town, their parents quickly taught them to focus their energy on various projects and hobbies. At the age of ten, after discovering how much fun it was to jump on ski’s and snowboards, they built Tree Hazard Snowboard Park. An extensive terrain park in Tyler’s back woods, complete with  jumps, rails, and obstacles to hone their skills on. They immediately developed and practiced their entrepreneurial skills as they sold lifetime passes to the park so they could buy more supplies and continue expanding the park.

At the age of 15, they had outgrown Tree Hazard, and were looking for something bigger and more exciting. At the time, their local mountain, the Camden Snow Bowl, didn’t have a terrain park, so the guys began looking to get passes to bigger mountains — like many of the other kids in town. After seeing what other mountains had for parks, really just gave the boys encouragement to bring something similar back to the Bowl. So they made a project out of it, and over the course of a summer and fall, the three succeeded in raising over $20,000 and numerous in-kind gifts to bring a full-scale park to Camden. (See Hero’s Park Web site as it was then) Today, 8 years after the project was started, the terrain park still remains an integral part of the mountain and community, providing a great outlet for young skiers and snowboarders to refine their talents and ease the monotony of New England winters.

As recent college graduates, the Maine Boys (as their Boston friends call them) are beginning to watch each other head in separate directions. But before this happens, they are trying to pull off something incredibly memorable and far more meaningful than a snowboard park.

This summer, they are embracing the Margaret Mead quote, engrained in their heads by a shared high school English teacher, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has”, and putting this show – quite literally – on the road.

Help Fund An Adventure For Good

Well folks, we are on the road! Thanks to over 200 individual and business supporters we have a beautiful bus, some functional production equipment, and enough money to get across the country on ramen, waste vegetable oil, and home-cooked meals whenever they present themselves. We can not appreciate those contributors enough: thanks to everyone who has given so far we are on the adventure of a lifetime and spreading optimism across the nation. We desperately need money for emergency situations (our bus has already broken down once), to contribute to causes across the country (we have a little...we would like a lot), and to make our trip that much healthier (greens are expensive). So check out the site, and contribute if you would like to support three young men on an Adventure for Good.
