Monday, August 06, 2007 is a brand new online media outlet geared to outdoor enthusiasts with broadband Internet access.

The site features a wealth of streaming content with a focus on the kind of fishing and hunting TV programs I used to love when I was 12. Even though most of the features are fishing and hunting related, this blog was included in a section marked "camping". I found a bunch of other great blogs in the directory, including Dharma Bums and Fly Fish Yellowstone.

Since my blog was included in the listings, I get a free hat! Score!
