‘Every dot on the map interests me’

Andrew Filer is an ambitious man. He’s photographed every dot on the North Dakota map, and is planning a another trip through the West taking pictures of “the tiniest places I can find.” He’s running a Kickstarter campaign to fund that endeavor.

I love small places, out-of-the-way places, desolate places, middles of nowheres, ghost towns, and other places that have a name but not much else.

So why every town?

Filer told APM’s Dick Gordon in 2008 that he wanted to see “what else was out there.”

Every time I hear something like that, including Bob’s recent discussion with kayaker Daniel Alvarez, I take it as one more reason to quit planning and start doing.
