The latest issue of JPFreek magazine is now available at JPFreek.com. This is the summer edition of the online magazine geared not only for jeep enthusiasts but also outdoor adventurers in general, with a range of articles that stretch from an ongoing, round the world road trip to a report from Chile on the Patagonia Expedition Adventure Race.
This is an important issue for JPFreek in general and for myself personally. For the magazine, it is the first issue to fall under their new paid subscription policy. Until now, the magazine was free, with revenues being ad driven, so this is a bit of a change in direction, but one that will allow the staff to continue to bring the same great content to readers, but also look ahead to some great things in the future as well. I can assure you, the team at JPFreek have some great plans for the future.
On a personal note, I’m happy to play a role in this issue. If you turn to page 40 of the virtual magazine, you’ll find an article entitled “Amazon Adventures”, which I wrote about my April trip to the Amazon River and Jungle. All the photos used in the article are ones that I shot myself, and the layout that the editorial staff put together is amazing. I’m very proud of how it turned out and glad that I was able to contribute and share a little of my own adventure.
Finally, if you look closely at the masthead for the magazine, you’ll see the list for the “Crew & Contributors”. Looking down that list under “Editorial” you’ll now notice that my name has been added. I have joined the crew at JPFreek as the Adventure Editor and I hope to be making larger contributions in the future. Thanks for having me aboard guys! 🙂
