I wanted to kick off the day today by introducing readers to a new project that I’ll be collaborating on in the months ahead. It’s called OutdoorX4 and it is a website and magazine that will be available both digitally and on local newsstands soon. The focus of the magazine will be outdoor adventure in all of its forms but with a decided slant towards off-road vehicles.
The team behind the magazine is currently working towards getting the first issue ready for print and if all goes right it should become available in January. OutdoorX4 will naturally feature articles about exploring jeep trails and other off-road expeditions, but it will also have stories about the activities that we all enjoy as well, including hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, adventure travel and more. Gear reviews will also play a role in both traditional outdoor products and those that are made specifically for 4×4 vehicles.
Personally I’m not much of an off-road enthusiast so I’ll be contributing adventure travel stories, gear reviews and other pieces that are more in tune with what you find here on the Adventure Blog. The editors of the publication are hoping to make it more than just a 4×4 mag however and they do want to appeal to a wide variety of fans who share an affinity for the outdoors. I think it holds a lot of promise and I’m excited to see the first copy in a couple of months time.
You can get a preview of what OutdoorX4 will be like by checking out our sample issue. Then head over to OutdoorX4.com to see some examples of the kind of content we’re bringing to the website as well. I think you’ll like what you find there.
