Season 3, Episode 3: Facing Dead-of-Winter Maine Alone in a Tent
In this episode, we continue with our group of explorers, people who broke away to take a moment–or a week, or a month, or even a couple years–to get some perspective.
Brandon Baltzley is the chef and co-owner of a restaurant called the Buffalo Jump, in East Falmouth, Massachusetts. It started as a pop-up, and right before he brought it to life as a brick-and-mortar space last spring, he left.
Brandon wanted to sober up, and he wanted to do it for himself. Most forms of recovery require community and structure–not going at it alone–but Brandon felt strongly that that's what he needed. And so, in the the middle of January, he went to Denmark, Maine, to stay in what was basically a tent. The idea was that he’d have to put down the bottle in order to survive the elements.
