I guess it's only online now.

But, they have full content starting with #171. They showcase selected articles from early issues.

I knew about the magazine but never took up reading it. I think I'll start. I've got a lot of catching up to do.

When in doubt, go higher.

At one time, I was in possession of a big stack of issues from the late seventies. There was a stellar collection of writers, many of whom became regulars in Outside and other outdoor publications. I'll have to check out the web site.

Yep, there's some good stuff here. :D

I would pick isues up if I walked past them leaving a store but never made an effort to find them.  It always seemed hit or miss for me.  Some issues I couldn't put down and some issues I couldn't throw away fast enough.  Now that I won't be reminded of its existence by walking by them it will probably fade to a distant memory for me.

Yes, I read it occasionally.  I noticed their editor is leaving.  Some of you may remember the name, M John Fayhee; he use to be a contributing editor at Backpacker in the past.

Happy Trails,

RS

Yvon Chouinard, Galen Rowell, Royal Robbins, Tim Cahill, Ed Abby, et al. I understand that any periodical has it's ups and downs. Were they not killing enough things to hold your attention OU? We all have our areas of interest, and the truth is that from Men's Journal to Boy's Life; The New Yorker to National Geographic, and so on, there are plenty of places to get your read on. I think that I discovered Patrick McManus in Field & Stream. Good writing is what I am talking about. Mine the archives, and you will find some gems.
