Chowdah and clam cakes. Lobstah rolls.
Steamahs, hot weinahs, coffee milk and oystahs.
You root for the Sawks and you know there's nothing bettah than an apple cidah donut in Octobah.
If you have trouble understanding any of the above, it's time for you to take this book and hit the road.
From charming colonial towns to rugged and rocky shores, New England is America at her most independent and idyllic, home to trailblazers, mariners, patriots, and scholars.
See the real New England through expert itineraries across Connecticut countryside, Rhode Island sailing ports, small-town Massachusetts, Vermont's and New Hampshire's charming backroads and the rocky coast of Maine.
This 145-page, back pocket companion shares the stories of lighthouse keepers, jazz impresarios, covered bridge experts, literature professors, boat captains and more. No guide exists of its kind, combining lore and intel, inspiring stories and curated recommendations.
Equal parts travel guide and tribute, the New England field guide contains personal essays, hand-drawn maps, interviews, and local lore. Wildsam guides read like letters from an old friend.
While it functions as a perfect guide to an upcoming road trip, its real beauty lies in its lasting ability to capture your imagination and enlighten you even if you've done a lifetime of exploring the area.
Unlike traditional guidebooks that list the same old must-see sights and touristy neighborhoods, this new series, entitled Wildsam Field Guides, gets at the soul of a city.
-Conde Nast Traveler
These pocket guides cover more than just where to drink. More storybook than guidebook, Wildsam's slim volumes include local culture and history, essays, short stories, illustrations, and short biographies the kind of information you need to truly learn about a place rather than just putting together a tick-list of things to do.
For tireless seekers of the authentic (or anyone with a serious Instagram habit who's on the hunt for offbeat sights), this pocket-size guidebook eschews the boring-but-practical stuff in favor of evoking what the jacket copy calls a "bygone sense of place."
-Wall Street Journal
City guides with a Wes Anderson aesthetic.
COVID-19: Our warehouse is continuing to take all necessary measures to ship orders and keep our team safe. Life may feel like it's returning to normal in your local area (we hope!), but the impact of COVID is still extremely present in the world of shipping and fulfillment.
Most orders for in-stock items are leaving our warehouse within 1-3 business days, but please be understanding if it takes additional time to get your order shipped.
If you choose an express shipping rate (FedEx Overnight or FedEx 2-Day) we're still getting most expedited orders out the door within 1 business day from when you order.
Please note that even though FedEx Groundor Priority Mail may cost more than Standard/Free Shipping, they're not considered an expedited shipping method. Any delivery times quoted are estimates only and it may not ship for 1-3 business days after you order as noted above.
Bottom line: We're doing everything we can to get your order to you quickly and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time!
We know what it's like to order something online and want to have it in your hands as quickly as possible. We ask that you allow us 1-2 business days to process your order and get it ready to ship, however we do everything we can to get orders out the door as soon as they come in - which means most packages will ship the very same day you order.
Our shipping takes place Monday through Friday - any orders placed over the weekend or after our mail pickup will be shipped in the order received.
If you choose a shipping option that has a quoted time like "FedEx Ground (2 Business Days)" or even "FedEx Overnight (1 Day)", please remember that isn't a guarantee that the order will be there exactly 1 or 2 days from the moment you order it - we still need time to pack & ship your order (see above).
When it comes to the carriers, the quoted times should also always be thought of as estimates, not guarantees. Expedited methods like FedEx 2-Dayor Overnight are pretty reliable in their delivery times (hence the cost), but services like Ground/Priority can certainly be optimistic with their estimates.
We offer the ability to pre-order and backorder some items on our site when they are not yet in stock. If an item you are purchasing isn't currently in stock, you'll see a note displayed in your shopping cart that indicates the expected shipping time for your order.
Please note that the expected shipping time is an estimate based on when we expect to receive new inventory.
Sometimes it takes us even longer than expected to receive inventory (especially with unpredictable COVID delays) and sometimes we receive inventory much sooner than the timeframe we estimate. Your order will always ship as soon as the inventory is in our hands!
We aren't able to split-ship your orders into multiple deliveries - so if you are ordering an item that isn't currently in stock along with other items that are, please be aware that your order won't ship until all items are in stock. If you're anxious to receive the in-stock items, we recommend placing a separate order so you can receive the in-stock items without delay.
Please see our Can I Request A Specific Shipping Carrier? page with important details on which carriers we offer and how to make sure you get your package delivered properly.
When receiving an international order your package will need to pass through Customs in your country. All of our packages will have a Customs Declaration Form which details the items in your package and their value.
PLEASE NOTE: There are almost always additional charges to receive your package when you order from outside your own country - these charges are Customs Duties and Import Taxes which are your responsibility to pay (often before you are allowed to collect the package). The laws and taxes are different in every country and Trek Light Gear has no way of knowing in advance what these taxes and fees will be. Please be aware of this when placing your order, we don't want you to be surprised when the package shows up and you owe additional money!
If you have any additional questions about international shipping methods or rates just let us know!
As you've likely seen on our website, we stand behind our products with what we call our Happiness Guarantee. So, what does that mean exactly?
In a nutshell: We want you to be happy with what you buy from us, and if you aren't - you've got our promise that we'll always do whatever we can to bring you happiness.
Within reason, right? Maybe you're sad because everything in our store doesn't cost $1, or you wish our 30-day return window was actually 3 years - well, we need to have some policies and rules so we can survive as a small business.
What matters is that we're here for you.
We truly care about your happiness, and will always do what we can to help - maybe it's a discount on your next order, store credit for a future purchase, or just going out of our way to make sure that the next item you buy from us is exactly what you want.
Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It on.
