This website came in to existence in 2003 after I took ownership of the framed Quotation towel. I decided that the background story to the towel was far to interesting to disappear in to the mists of history, and deserved a place on the nearest creation the Earth currently has to the HHGTTG.
Over time, other enthusiasts and generous production staff have drip-feed snippets of information to build up the pages you see before you now. If you are very bored and which to know more about me, then my humble little corner of the internet can be found over at http://www.kentfield.co.uk.
If you spot any inaccuracies on this website, or you know any towel-related information that isn't on this website, then please email your towel information to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @hhgttgtowel.
If you would like to know when this website is updated then please follow @hhgttgtowel on Twitter and join in the hoopy froody fun of always knowing where you towel is.
