Hello, everyone! Adventure has been my escape and refuge over the last six months and I’m guessing it’s been that way for you. Adventure Journal, too, is a refuge, even for those of us creating it, and that’s one reason why you won’t see references to covid in our winter issue. This issue, with a gorgeous cover of Southern California’s Mt. Baldy by David Reddick, is instead a celebration of exploration, stoke, joy, and all the things that inspire us about the outdoors.
The winter issue printed last week and is currently being bound and trimmed; by Monday we’ll be processing subscriber copies and delivering them to the Postal Service right after that. This means a few things:
1. If you aren’t a subscriber, now’s the time to get on board. Our issues sell out fast and we don’t reprint them. Subscribe here.
2. If you are a subscriber and need to update your address, get on it, stat. Respond to this email with your new deets.
3. A subscription to AJ makes the perfect gift, and our gift orders have been exploding. Wanna give one? Do it here.
4. Many of you have asked how you can support AJ’s independent, ethical journalism beyond subscribing. Well, we have soft-launched our patronage program. You can support us monthly (and unlock our private community network and get exclusive swag) or make a one-time payment. Support AJ here.
