Embracing the Mothers of Invention

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.

About tjamrog

I'm sixty-seven and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, Vermont's Long Trail in 2011, and the Continental Divide Trail in 2013 . I am outdoors every day. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures".
