Another website that I stop by every day is Keven Kelly’s Cool Tools. Once a day they post a review of some Cool Tool. Often it is something that I would never consider using in the whole wide earth. Sometimes it excites my baser consumer instincts, and I end up buying a hand-powered nose-hair clipper or some such. And every once in a while there’s a shining star of a thing, whose existence I had never imagined, and it’s just waiting for me to order one for my very own.
For example: The Best in Tent Camping guidebooks. There’s over 2 dozen of them. Most cover a single state. Each contains descriptions of 50 camping sites. The authors tend to search for sites that are less hospitable to RV camping. I prefer remote and lonely camping, and the four books that I’ve bought have helped me greatly to find such places.
Other pages at kk.org seem to be updated less frequently. I browse through them semi-occasionally. There’s always something fascinating there.
I’ve yet to look to other books from Menasha Ridge Press, but I’m sure I’ll get around to it. I’ll let you know what I find out.
