Embracing the Mothers of Invention
By DAVID POGUE
Published: January 25, 2012
Kickstarter is a site where creative people solicit start-up money for various projects (and you can read Pogue’s article about the concept web site by clicking the link above). And people actually pledge money to help the projects in return for, maybe, a T-shirt or a CD.
I have funded four projects so far: A video production of the Appalachian Trail culture, a backpackable inflatable pillow that has a solar cell on it that allows the pillow to illuminate the tent, and a 7,000 mile solo fat tire biking expedition to Alaska ( in winter), and a documentary on the actual “Lost on a Mountain in Maine” experiences of the young Donn Fendler.
In the Path of Young Bulls details a team’s five-month-long stint of daily challenges along the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, one of the USA’s toughest long-distance journeys. The book also serves as a resource for section and long-distance hikers in planning their own CDT adventures, by including daily mileages from starting and ending locations, as well as on-trail reports and conditions for each day’s hike.
$30.00 (plus tax)
286 pages, with dozens of pages of full color photos.
