Northern Outdoors does have an Iceman

We knew we had an Iceman in our midst, and it was only a matter of time before the story broke outside our cozy lodge in the Forks, in the dead of Maine’s winter.

Our Northern Outdoors Snowmobile Club Trailmaster is none other than Jim Yearwood, longtime Northern guide, avid snowmobiler, and the one who laid out most of the trails in the Forks region over the last 25 years. He’s one of the reasons Northern Outdoors IS a Snowmobile Resort! He’s about as cool as they come – meaning – nothing gets him rattled. Here’s an excerpt from a January 31st, 2009 article in the Kennebec Journal & Morning Sentinel:

THE FORKS — I’m told they refer to him as “The Iceman” when he’s not around, which gets a chuckle out of those gathered at the bar on a cold winter evening.  I find the nickname for Jim Yearwood, the vice president of the adventure tourism spot Northern Outdoors, to be something of a misnomer. He was given the moniker because he’s about as plain-dealing as they come, not given to verbosity or garrulousness. But, really, Yearwood would be better known as “The Snowman,” just not in a magic-hat-Frosty kind of way.
