GREY GOOSE and WHISKEY MILITIA


Kyle Smith and Dan Whillans migrate to the Madawaska Valley every spring for a season of surf. Just minutes from the Rapid office, their trailers are parked a mile from the local river and they commute to and from the shore in a muffler-less Subaru Forester. “I live in my trailer for five months of the year,” Smith says, “then I move to where the weather is better and living is cheap.”


VEHICLE NAME


Grey Goose and Whiskey Militia


VEHICLE YEAR/MAKE/MODEL


1965 Golden Falcon 13.5’ and 1974 Jayco 15’


ESSENTIAL FEATURES


No electricity, no indoor plumbing—no problem. These guys have a sunset view of the river valley and 240 acres of scenery un- rolling around them. Trailer renos included removing a family of mice, hanging some curtains and add- ing a custom paint job.


OCCUPANCY (PEOPLE)


“Sleeps five, so tell your friends.”


OCCUPANCY (BOATS): “The Subaru maxes out at six boats and five boaters.”


MEMORABLE MOMENT


“Sunset sessions.” Every night paddlers from the area head to the trailers with guitars and drums to watch the sun set over the river valley’s rolling hills.
