Good and Plenty

Everything That Was Important in 2013, Pt. 2

If we’d have told you 12 months ago that a year from now you’d have purchased a ghost town, fished from a helicopter, chased a bear and... shopped on the Internet, you’d have said that sounds like a pretty good year. Well, guess what: it was a pretty good year.

Seedstore and Trunk Clothiers
YOU BOUGHT STUFF ON THE INTERNET

Seedstore and Trunk Clothiers

Of all the things you procured from the Internet this year, the two handsomest came courtesy of Seedstore (with their NorCal casualness) and Trunk Clothiers (with their British refinement). So, if you think of it, maybe email them a thank-you card or something.

Easynest and Bang With Friends
YOU MAMBOED. HORIZONTALLY.

Easynest and Bang With Friends

Social media. It’s great when it helps people around the world connect to discover common interests. Two of this year’s best examples: Easynest, which linked you up with overly friendly travelers looking to share a hotel suite. And Bang With Friends, an app that... pretty sure you know what that one did.

Digipill and NeverLate
YOU WERE INCREDIBLY PRODUCTIVE

Digipill and NeverLate

It almost seems impossible that you accomplished so much in one year. Must’ve been thanks to tools like Digipill, which gave you productivity-enhancing audio clips to download, and NeverLate, which synced your personal calendar with GPS data to keep you punctual. Or it was thanks to deer antler spray.

FlightCar and Boatbound
YOU GOT AROUND

FlightCar and Boatbound

By Land: You discovered FlightCar and profited from renting out your vehicle while you traveled.
By Sea: You put that captain’s hat to good use by borrowing a yacht via Boatbound. You knew that thing would come in handy someday.

Lodges, Luxury Tents and Rolling Huts
YOU WENT WEST

Lodges, Luxury Tents and Rolling Huts

There’s no place like home. Except for the slopeside mansion you stayed a week at in Steamboat and the sultan-worthy tent you temporarily lived out of in the middle of the Utah desert and the futuristic rolling huts in Washington. But besides that, home. Totally home.

Seneca, California, and Air Force One
YOU MADE IMPULSIVE DECISIONS

Seneca, California, and Air Force One

At one point, buying an entire ghost town along with a decommissioned Air Force One jet probably seemed like a good idea. However, it wasn’t until much later that you realized it was a tad impulsive. Of course, by then you didn’t care because you owned the president’s plane.
