While I read Cool Tools for reviews on hiking, camping, and travelling, the truth is I’m 100% urban bred. My dream, however, is to embark on a solo walking/biking trip through a number of Asian countries including China, Russia, and the Caucuses. I daydream of biking out of my Chinese city into the surrounding villages, and I’m looking for any resources or guides for the uninitiated.
A cool tool is anything useful that is superior to comparable items. If you think this tool is inferior suggest a better one. You are welcome to insult a tool, but comments containing insults to individual people will be deleted. Corrections of fact are always welcomed, if stated politely. Recommendations of better tools are dearly wanted and may be elevated to the front page.
