hullo QJ,
I've had several ppl mention to me that they have not received the latest version of the mag.  Just wondering if any of the experts on our board know or have heard anything on this topic?

As always, thanks to db for maintaining this site,   --paw

paw, 

The BWJ went out normally prior to Christmas, per the publisher.  I contacted Stu last week when my issue was way late & I discovered none of several subscriber friends had received theirs either.  He told me that "shipping" was a real mess and the matter was essentially out of his hands now. Subscribers I've heard from are located in Illinois, Iowa, Virginia, Florida, & Washington state.  Bottom line: it's in the mail.

Jimbo  Cool

Two weeks+ in the mail.  Interesting.
Thanks, Jimbo, for the reply.   --paw

That's the story, I'm afraid.  We're still waiting on a number of items that allegedly "shipped" weeks ago from various places.  Any somewhat important stuff that I have to mail/ship now goes out via premium services.  So far, THAT approach seems to be getting items through on a timely basis, at least.

I'll post something here when my BWJ arrives in Florida.  I'm anxious to read a story written by a newbie I took into the BWCA a couple years back.  It's entitled (if Stu didn't change the title), "The Isle of Squirrel."  Should be an entertaining first impression of the north woods and a very different take on wilderness canoeing & camping.  The young man had never done anything like it before.

Later,

Jimbo   Cool

Sounds like you guys are waiting for something coming from Battle Creek, Michigan.

Wink

Don't read too much into that because I once sent in something in the name of a 25 yr old friend to the Zebco fishing club. We still joke about it but he actually got some good stuff for the next few years as I recall.

paw,

I'm hearing reports that the BWJ is starting to arrive (at least in Iowa & Illinois).  It's not down here in Florida yet, unfortunately.  Maybe by Valentines Day....

FYI
