Just bought my favorite magazine and shock horror the recent decline in travel and expedition articles continues. What a decline of a great magazine over the last few months, it used to stand out from all the other mags as it dealt with travel and expedition travel. It might as well be called landrover historical now, nothing about it separates it from all the other mags now. Will give it a few more months, but if this continues what options do i have.

Anybody know of any mags which deal with overland travel and 4x4 adventures ?

Have you contacted Simon, who's now the Editor of LRW, and voiced your concerns?

No, i will indeed as it everyone i know who buys it loves the travel stories, its what separates it from the other mags. The equipment reviews and preparation articles were great.

Hi

Thanks for the comments, please feel free to contact me direct to discuss ideas and concerns: lrw.ed@kelsey.co.uk

The Feb 2010 issue was devoted to Expeditions. In the 6 issues since then we've had nearly 100 pages of features covering overlanding, trip reports, preparation and equipment.

The problem I have at the moment is that two people I've hired to cover this subject are off travelling!

Simon, would you be looking to hire another writer/sub-editor type person?

No, it's not me Smile I am not to familiar with the correct terms (as you may have guessed from above) but a good friend of mine was an editor of a magazine (now sadly no more) and has pass experience of the same at other publications. He is also a Land Rover fan, amoungst other things.

Ping me a PM if you are interested and I will put you in touch.
