I am constantly looking at ways to improve the kevinswilderness.com website and add new content to it. With the success of the Google Map that was added to the page dealing with my recent road trip, I have decided to add Google Maps wherever they would prove useful – such as for locations, track routes, etc.
The first part of the site getting an overhaul with Google Maps in mind, is the Barrington Tops page. I am also adding new content to the page as I go. The Barrington Tops page is one of the biggest pages on my site, so the process is taking a bit of time. You will also find the planned itinerary for my backpacking camping holiday here as well as I move along with it.

While in my last year of college in the 1980’s, I saw one of B.F. Skinner’s (the behavioral psychologist) last talks. Skinner gave a deeply cynical speech where he basically said the human race is doomed because they cannot learn to cooperate, even on very important issues, fast enough, to save their own lives. I was in my 20’s then, and I remember feeling very down about this talk and I thought, surely, he cannot be right. But look at the latest evidence: even though Wall Street leaders nearly brought down the world’s economies with their high stakes gaming, they resist, with all their might, any changes. This is proof of their insanity on at least several levels. Regarding global warming, see it play out all over again. World “leaders” (or should I say “followers” of corporate greed) have no intention of preventing the next disaster. They intend to reduce greenhouse gasses as little as possible, and not enough. It is clearly insane to not curb warming of the planet, yet here we are again, facing disaster, but the insane have the power to prevent it. Coal, oil, and all the dirty fuel producers want money, not life. This is how crazy they are. They are psychologically unwell. But unless the populace gets up off the couch, we are unlikely to save ourselves.
