Accidental Fire Recommends

Things I like that you might like too!


Vanguard – The best, nothing more needs to be said. I’ve been with them since 1997.

camelcamlecamel – This site rocks. If you’re on a journey to FIRE or just FI or if you just wanna save some scratch, this site tracks virtually every product on Amazon over time and maps out the data for you. You can see the lowest/highest range, and set email alerts for specific price targets. Basically you can let them stalk the product for you so you get the best deal instead of having to check back with Amazon all the time to see if what you want went on sale. Booyah.

The Simple Path To Wealth – The only book you really need to read to learn how to get rich.  It’s not like other financial-type books in that it’s easy to read and quite engaging. Must read.

The Magic Of Thinking Big – This book is equally inspiring and hilarious. It was written in 1959 but the messages hold true today. Elevator summary: Your success in life is largely commensurate with your attitude. It contains all sorts of funny 1959-type examples and vignettes that tend to begin with “One day my secretary was getting me coffee….”  A window into by-gone days but a great book.

Fitness & Workout-Type-Things

Strava – The best social network out there because it helps make your body a better machine. Upload the GPS files of your outdoor activities and compare your times over certain ‘segments’ to others and your younger self. I love it when I set a PR because by default a PR means I just got older and faster.  That which does not kill me hurts my friggin’ knees a lot!

Veloviewer – Basically it’s Strava data on steroids and human growth hormone combined. You can cut/slice/dice/dissect your workout data in every way imaginable, complete with great visuals.  You must be on Strava to use this site but it’s free with a paid option for more functionality. Fitness buffs and math geeks unite – form of:  DORKS!


TeamViewer – TeamViewer lets you run any one of your computers from another, or even a tablet or phone. It simple rocks and I can’t imagine life without it.
