The new issue of The Backwoodsman magazine is here!! I have been a subscriber for I don't know how many years now and is my standing birthday gift every year from my wife. It is a wonderful magazine. The July/August issue highlights are: A method for small scale charcoal production, Coal to flame.....the lost firemaking skill, Your backpack is a survival kit, Making animal claw pendants, Wool for the backwoodsman, and A true woodsman's knife from Lucas Forge. If you have never seen The Backwoodsman magazine, try to find a copy as soon as you can. Each issue has do-it yourself projects, woodslore, homesteading, and many other interesting things. All of the articles in the magazine are submitted by readers. It gives the feeling of a blog itself. I have never found a magazine where the letters from readers are almost as interesting as the articles themselves. The editor and creator, Charlie Richie, has created quite a magazine. They are now in their 33rd year of publication. Charlie seems to be a real down to earth guy and I enjoy reading his editorials and views/opinions. Again, if you have never seen The Backwoodsman magazine, treat yourself to one of the best magazines in the world. I have found them at Walmart, Books-a-million, Barnes & Noble, and Bass Pro Shop. The website is www.backwoodsmanmag.com. Maybe it can be your new standing birthday gift!
