Connect With Outdoorzy Types
Seems that a social-networking site pops up every day catering to a different kind of hobbyist (reference MyPhilately and Snooth). For outdoors enthusiasts, Outdoorzy is filling that niche. It’s a cleanly designed virtual space in which some 2,000 hikers, bikers, kayakers, backpackers, climbers, and surfers convene. There’s no cost to join, although you’ll have to tolerate some prominent ads. For doing so, you’ll get access to the site’s blog, calendar of outdoor events, gear reviews, discussion boards, and the occasional contest. After creating your personalized profile, find likeminded friends, share photos, or join a group.
And if you're interested in this sort of stuff, keep an eye out for the Sierra Club's own social network, which is coming very soon.
