Well, I'm back from a lovely time in Scotland without WiFi! Although there is always that horrible moment...
Get home, open up the inbox and brace yourself for the tirade of emails that fall in. Makes me realise how distracting getting 100s of emails a day is!
Oh, wait... I'm sending an email... Hopefully this email is a good sort of distracting for you :)
I've had a few emails about Issue 8 not arriving yet. It should be with you any minute now - definitely this week. Sorry if I caused a bit of confusion by saying when we went to the printers. Getting that magazine to your front door is a looong process. From getting proofs approved, then printing, sending them to fulfilment, repackaging them into envelopes and then posting them out to you.
If anyone can think of a better way, hit reply to this email! We always aim for first week of the month, but February was a very short month. Would you prefer to know exactly when the magazine is coming?
Let me know and I'll try to fix it up for you!
Also, please - RUNNERS - we need one intrepid lady to take on the Salomon Skyline Mamores Vertical Kilometre trail run for Team Intrepid. No takers yet...
Scroll down or forward to a friend!
