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.

Hiking With My Brother

J Barnes is out hiking with his brother, and enjoying some of the best scenery and outdoor experiences that Northwest America has to offer. Not to mention the companionship and experience of sharing meaningful living with one of the most important people in his life, his brother.

Hiking With My Brother – Why You Should Go

I’ll be honest, I like this blog simply for its concept—two brothers, sharing a common interest, enjoying the outdoors, living a healthy lifestyle, and sharing quality time together. That was enough to get me to visit the blog from BlogCatalog. It’s almost enough of a reason to review the blog, but then we have that nagging question of content to consider. It didn’t nag for long, however, as the content of this a blog was top-notch, too.

The two brothers blogging share each of their Northwest (USA) hiking adventures with us. They take us virtually to some beautiful and interesting locations, and then back it up with all the best online media tools. For starters, each hike description (which is detailed, compelling, and thorough) is accompanied by a Google Map and trailguru map that shows the location and the trails that were explored (now if I could find some snowmobiling trails tracked on there, I’d be a happy snowmobile blogger for sure!). Even better, the posts include pictures from the hike, and cool virtual features like Photosynth experiences.

Summing Up Hiking With My Brother

Hiking With My Brother has everything you’d want to see in a hiking blog—it’s got the stories from the trail, the media and information to replicate great hikes, reviews of locations and trails, and the virtual experience to go along with it all. If you have any interest in exploring the trails of the Northwest U.S., or even in just living a bit through the adventures of others, this blog is a definite destination for you.

Go here to check out Hiking With My Brother.
