Older Websites by Brent Turcotte:
The Outdoor Explorer's Guide A website that lists and briefly describes the incredible number of possible activities to do outdoors.  Not being updated currently.  Very incomplete.  Aborted due to the effort required to finish it and the lack of interest in it.  You may still find something of interest in it though.
