The L.L.Bean Bootmobile

The L.L.Bean Bootmobiles have covered over 40,000 miles, 10 states, 12 college campuses and every L.L.Bean store in the country.
Our popular Bootmobile needed a sidekick. This one is a bit smaller, lighter and greener, with a biodiesel-compatible engine.

The original Bootmobile was so popular, it needed a sidekick. So, we built a second. It's a bit smaller, lighter and greener—the engine is biodiesel compatible. An interactive entertainment system adds to the fun. Now we have a fleet of big feet, revving up for a season of special events near and far.

Building the L.L.Bean Bootmobile. Planning New Journeys.
I spotted the Bootmobile. L.L.Bean.

Behind the Wheel
An interview with Bootmobile Driver, L.L.Bean ambassador, and outdoorsman Eddie Flaherty

Known to his coworkers as “Eddie of the Woods,” Eddie Flaherty is more than just gifted at driving the 13-foot Bootmobile. This Registered Maine Guide leads whitewater rafting adventures, is an avid fly fisherman, and plans on playing semi-pro football when he's not on the road.

We thought it would be great to catch up with Eddie and learn what it's like behind the wheel.
