New blogs and writers pop up constantly on the web. Here are a few new adventure related sites, reporters, and stories from this summer worth a read.
The Adventure Life Gear Blog
Steve Casimiro and crew started this new section of The Adventure Life back in June. They put gear through the wringer, comment on recent industry news, and post on new stuff they're salivating over.
Former Outside assistant managing editor Megan Michelson started working for ESPN.com a month ago. In that time, she's wracked up a slew of great blogs, on topics from heated chairlifts to avalanche docs. Most notably, as part of the web site's Thinkers series.
Gulf Oil Spill
Take your pick: The AP, Science, Nature, Mother Jones, and The New York Times have dedicated resources towards covering the effects of the Deepwater Horizon Disaster. Yes, this is environmental story, but it effects every sort of recreating, from swimming to fishing to eating.
