Recap Review, March 21 Edition

This week we were largely dominated by outdoor and fitness blogs.  Must be the Springtime inspiration of Northeast U.S.?  Regardless, we found some excellent blogs to get you moving and enjoying the world around you.

Week In Review, March 21, 2009

  • After a quick word on the power of Social Networking and locating great blogs for reading and review, we checked in with two brothers who are spending some quality time and experiences of a lifetime together in Hiking With My Brother.  This a a hiking blog that should stand as an example to all hiking blogs of what one should be, with its comprehensive coverage of each hike and trail.
  • The trail adventures continued with Biking Hiking with Kids, a father-son blog covering all aspects of outdoor recreation as it relates to hiking, biking, and camping, and the dynamics and issues that are added when enjoyed together with children and youngsters.
  • Next up we went inside for a lifestyle change with Coach Jenn, a wife and mother-turned personal fitness coach who is showing how healthy a lifestyle any of us can be living–and giving us the tools and motivation to do it!
  • What’s fitness, hiking, and outdoor recreation without a good appreciation of nature?  Lacking.  And so, with the next blog review we came upon Nature Remains and joined Nina as she continues to discover the wonder right outside her door.
  • Last is never least here, and to round out the week we stopped in with J.S. Crews and his Backwoods Essentials blog.  J.S. is bringing us all the news, tutorials, information, and tools for simpler and backwoods living, including tips and tools for emergency preparedness and more.  Get ready for anything at the Backwoods Essentials blog.

That’s what we’ve been doing this week, but don’t stop here! See last week’s featured blog reviews in the March 14 Recap Review.

Backwoods Essentials

Backwoods Essentials is the work of J.S. Crews, an American living a simpler, “backwoods” lifestyle. Although this may seem like a new concept, it really is not. There is a fairly large population of people choosing this sort of (usually) “off the grid” lifestyle all across the world, and Crews is one helping them do it.

Backwoods Essentials – Why You Should Go

Crews’ blog, which is an accompaniment in part to his Backwoods Essentials storefront, is a collection of news, information and tutorials for backwoods and survival living. Although it caters largely to that “backwoods” crowd, it also caters to the more general populations of outdoor enthusiasts, campers, and even urbanites who are looking to become a little more self-sufficient and prepared. The blog is described as

“A blog to discuss life on a rural homestead; including gardening, long term food storage, alternate energy, emergency preparedness, survivalist and self-sufficiency topics.”

As such, it has information available for a wide variety of uses, and offers up useful knowledge that can be applied regardless of where you live.

Summing Up Backwoods Essentials

With life gone crazy, some people are finding refuge in getting back to the basics and simplifying life a little more; others are simply being better prepared in a world that at times can be very unpredictable. No matter what your intention, finding out how to achieve that goal will be a lot easier with Crews and his many resources.

Go here to check out Backwoods Essentials.
