Found Friday is where I post a bunch of stuff - some of which is related to the outdoors - and much of it, well... not. Here's what I've been reading this week:
- Kurt Van Der Dijs started a kickstarter project to fund a trip from Mexico to Canada on foot.
- Photoblogger released The Best Photos from Yosemite National Park
- It's pretty odd I find this inspiring, but Anthony Bourdain's IAMA on Reddit spawned one of my favorite threads ever
- Tony Farley's Beautiful Places in HD is now on Hulu
- Wandering the Wild released their Pacific Crest Trail book
- ...speaking of nature books. The Mid-Peninsula Regional Open Space District recently released a new coffee table book
- Section Hiker climbed Mount Osceola and East Osceola reminding me of why I no longer live in New England.
- "Just a Colorado Gal" reminds us why not to break in gear on the trail on a backcountry trip to McNamara Hut
- TrailSherpa has been running a segment on how to be a better hiker
- The Gearcaster covered some 1000-fill down jackets. sooooooo warm
- Wilderness Dave took a trip to Oregon and took some amazing photos of Multnomah Falls
- Highline Magazine ran a nice review of the BioLine Stove
- Lots of lighting apparently does not make us any safer. But it does make us unhappy. So that's a thing.
- The New York Times ran a cool story on Owls
- Water pollution apparently makes otter junk smaller. Think about that the next time you wash your car in the road.
- If you're the kind of person that does not normally use public transit the world's best bus stop might change that.
- Apparently you can buy classy manliness (it costs about $2500 which is kind of a deal), which means you should probably stop reading this blog. Unless your a lady. It's also taught me hipster outdoorsmen shoot surprisingly great videos. And yes, I totally attached that link so that when you google search "hipster outdoorsmen" you'll find their site
- If the world feels a little bit different it's because last Saturday was Open Data Day
- SPUR visited some San Mateo farms
- The Drakes Bay Oyster Co. gets to stay open for now. Hurray! $1 Oysters are here to stay!
- Google is rebuilding the Googleplex
- Author, Jonathan Franzen is apparently a huge birder
