Long-time Gear Junkie readers might still remember when the column only appeared in newsprint. That’s right, my efforts to review all the world’s greatest gear began in the humble back pages of a sports section in Minneapolis.
Well, the column has grown, spurning this web site plus now 10 syndicate newspapers that spread the Gospel of the Gear Junkie to about 2 million readers a week, from Albuquerque to Seattle, east all the way to Greensboro, N.C. And today we welcome a new paper: The Twin Falls Times-News, an Idaho publication headquartered south a ways from Ketchum, east from Boise, and in the middle of some of the best undiscovered wilderness in the Lower 48s.
Here’s one of my columns on the paper’s web site: http://www.magicvalley.com/articles/2007/12/28/features/outdoors/127571.txt
Now, in total, here is the running tally of Gear Junkie syndicate publications: Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Albuquerque Journal, Casper Star-Tribune, Spokane Spokesman-Review, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Greensboro News-Record, Cape Cod Times, Jackson Hole Star Tribune, Redding Record Searchlight, Billings Gazette, Twin Falls Times-News + Active.com
