Blog of Note: Goes Live!

Well, its not really a blog, more like a record of a lifestyle...

Just launched on Friday, has to be one of the best upcoming sites right now. And yes, I know what your thinking, "he's only saying that because his cousin is the author, founder, creator and all around genius behind it all.", nope, I speak truth young padawan. Put together by Colin, his best buddy Paul Daisey and a few of those other wild Sussex County boys, the Backwoods Crew consists of some winners.

Here's what Colin, Paul, and all the boys are all about...

Roughly a decade before the Pilgrims set foot on Plymouth Rock, Henry Hudson landed on the Delmarva Peninsula. He gathered what cartographical information he needed and moved on. 400 years later, this short stretch of coast remains an afterthought.
Resting at the foot of the hyper-populated Northeast, the Delmarva Peninsula sits within striking distance of three of the biggest metro-areas in the United States, yet maintains a cultural and ecological character unto itself. Pristine woodlands, marshes, bays and fertile farmland all collide with the Atlantic Ocean to form a unique geographical Diaspora that acts at once as a dramatic backdrop and playground for residents who couldn’t dream of living anywhere else.
As colorful and diverse as the landscape itself, the people that comprise this area represent a range of Americana, from hearty farmers and fisherman to hard-partying surfers and skateboarders. They’re drawn together by an intrinsic connection to this particular geography, in both economic and recreational terms.
The Backwoods crew is about bringing you into the lives of these characters as a bizarrely symbiotic group and as distinct, slightly twisted individuals. Four wheeling with shotguns, endless backyard bonfires, long paddles through icy canals, not to mention the occasional spitting barrel—it all happens on Delmarva. Let us take you there, from the beach to the backwoods.
If you roll on over to the Backwoods Crew's site, you can check out the latest videos, "Tips of the Week", Paul Daisey's "Daisey's Corner", upload your own pictures to the Backwoods Crew's "Wall of Fame", and read some SUPER awesome content about fishing, hunting, surfing, and more. I'm really looking forward to making a weekend trip down to see the boys and hopefully shoot a webisode on fly fishing.

You can find more on Backwoods through their Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or Vimeo...
