yeah after Y2K went bust, they stopped printing, ive saved all my copies, cause they always had some interesting stuff in there, i havent checked out their online articles so i guess i should. def a good mad in its day!
A friend published some stuff in there and there were regular articles from a guy in Tok, can't recall his exact name. I remember the one where he and his wife killed 4 or 5 charging grizzlies, like something out of Day of the Animals.
I liked the magazine. Had lots of good stuff in it but it was getting a little green and boring.
Yes the magazine decided to become more politically correct. They lost a lot of readers because of it. They went bankrupt and Backwoods Home Magazine bought their subscription list. BHM was good enough to send us magazines until our subscriptions ran out. We have subscribed to Backwoods Home ever since.
Saved tons of them but, threw them out when we moved. Magazines are HEAVY! I would never pay $20 for six internet issues. They have no distribution costs, it should be a LOT cheaper not more. If they droped the price I would! :xeye:
The guy in Tok was Chris Janowski of the World Survival Institue. He has since passed away. The reason they went out of print was because the editor passed away. It was a pretty good mag. I just recently sold several years worth of issues on Ebay.
That is the other one! I had mine spiral bound (easier to keep open while your hands are working) and the covers laminated for $3 at Staples.
It is mostly a re-write of a U.S. SERE manual. With tons of additional info based on real world experience. lThis is the best one to have with you in your pack. If you practice the techniqes and have it with you it WILL save your ass! :thumb:
