We have finished work on the sixth printed volume of Sidetracked, the adventure-travel magazine, and it’s now available for pre-order. I think it’s one of the best we’ve produced yet.
In the unknown we find the essence of fear. In the darkness of what we can’t see or understand, we discover what it’s like to be afraid. It’s human nature, an in-built survival mechanism, to be cautious when we have no idea what lies ahead. Venturing into the unknown requires considerable courage.
Volume Six includes stories by Kilian Jornet (who was in Nepal when the earthquake struck), Andy Houseman and Jon Griffiths (writing about their attempt to make the first ascent of Link Sar), Tara Mulvany (dodging polar bears on a sea-kayak circumnavigation of Svalbard), and James Hollmer-Cross (surfing the monster waves of Pedra Branca). There’s loads more material to enjoy here too, and the stories are accompanied by some truly stunning photography.
I’ve now been Sub-Editor on the Sidetracked team for a year, and working on Volume Six has been a real pleasure. It ships on the 9th of February and you can pre-order your copy here.
