Here’s this week’s collection of my favorite outdoor-related websites, blogs, blog posts, YouTube videos, gear, etc. Enjoy.
Favorite blog of the week
At this time of year hundreds (thousands?) of Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker hopefuls embark on the journey of a lifetime. And in this age of smartphones and social media many of them will be blogging and tweeting along the way. Over the past few weeks I’ve subscribed to several AT Thru-Hiker blogs and followed many more on Twitter. One of the best of these blogs in Hiking the Trail by a guy named Adam Nutting. You can also find him on Twitter @HikingTheTrail. Check him out.
Favorite YouTube video of the week
I actually came across this video last year while I was getting ready to hike the Vermont Long Trail. I absolutely love it. The cinematography is awesome, and it uses the greatest hiking song of all time: Eddie Vedder’s “Guaranteed” as the soundtrack. How cool is that? Walking In on YouTube by Secretberger
Favorite tweet of the week
OK, this one isn’t “outdoor-related”, but it’s still a great quote from one of my favorite authors:
Here's to the crazy ones. Because they change things.— jack kerouac (@Jack__Kerouac) March 15, 2013
