Farmer Diddley’s Favorites – Mar 17, 2013

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:

      Yeah, isn’t that a great video? I found that when my son and I were prep’ing for our hike, and he’s a huge Eddie Vedder fan, and just fell in love with that video! Thanks for reading my blog, Erle. Very much appreciated. Hope you’re doing well.
