Aahhh....to live on the Outer Banks. I can't do it so I just do the next best thing...go when I can and stay in touch with those that live, work, and play there. There is a new blog to join the ranks of OBX Bill's web site. It's from Andy, who works at the Sailworld shop in Avon. Andy's site is awesome and really reflects a waterman's life at one of the best beaches in the world. And I love the name "Lost in Hatteras".
And OBX Bill has something really unique this week. If you're a fan of flying and airplanes, check this out.
The great thing about all these blogs from Andy, Bill, Peconic Puffin/Michael, Kevin Pritchard, my good friend Rob, etc (and they're growing like crazy)....is this....think about how you subscribe to magazines. With blogs, we're subscribing to people....and it's interactive. It's also close to real-time, compared with seeing words and pictures in a magazine that were created months ago before going to print. Don't get me wrong, windsurfing magazines are great too and I think still play an important role. However, blogging is such a great complement, fills the void between issues, and connects you with real people and their real experiences.
