Hunter S. Thompson was one of a kind. He ushered in the era of the gonzo journalist and fueled his escapades with a cornucopia of illegal substances, which led to some of the most interesting books and articles we’ve ever read. If you have $110,000 you can devour more of the good doctor’s work in the form of 182 letters, most written to his childhood friend Paul Semonin. The lot of letters, auctioned through Nate D. Sanders, is a major coup for any superfan of Hunter S. Thompson’s work, as you’ll gain access to writing few have ever seen, including dispatches from far-off countries, a letter penned the day JFK was assassinated, and more, all signed by Thompson. The notes span from 1955–1974 and offer a unique glimpse into Thompson’s life.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
