Welcome to Maine Boys Head Up to the County and Freeze Their Nips Off
Mark and Troy head up to the northernmost point in the country.
These two knuckleheads were pretty funny about going to up to Aroostock county where they speak a combination of, 'French, English and Allens Coffee Brandy.'
Like with all the travels the Maine boys do, you always learn a little something. For instance, Mark and Troy said that Aroostook County was formed in 1839 and they use beef gravy on their poutine. Of course, Mark and Troy also called Madawaska (where they were) the 'Florida Keys of Canada' or like living in 'a walk-in freezer at Applebees'. Okay, I may use those lines. They also talked about the two big things the County is known for: the Acadian culture and potatoes. Also, a huge source of wind power too!
For an area of Maine that is hours and hours away, so many Mainers have a connection to 'the county'. Family from Madawaska, a camp in Houlton, great grandparents in Presque Isle, if you live in Maine chances are pretty darn good you know someone up north. The County is the area of Maine where legends are made. You know, like surviving the snow. This is a snowbank in Madawaska. When you can live where this is a common sight, you are a legend.
It was stupid cold when Mark and Troy were up north. But of course they had no coats on, because they are Mainers!
Inside scoop: Troy and Mark are actually Portland comics James Theberge and Ian Stuart. Wicked pissah!
