We’re gearing up to launch a Kindle version of the magazine. The first one will probably be the Jan/Feb 2012 issue. I think this, as well as a Nook version and ipad’s eBooks, is the future. We monkeyed around with a digital magazine launch a year or so ago but after six months of work we realized that our current website was far better than any digital version. But Kindle makes a lot of sense. It’s easy for the reader to use, easy for BHM to format for, and it has both protection from pirates and a reasonable profit margin. It will open up the entire English-speaking world to BHM. With our superior content, we’ll do well with very little financial risk.

My daughter and boys grew up swimming in places with names like Deep Creek and Secret Swimming Hole on Pistol River near our home in southern coastal Oregon.

Deep Creek is a friendly place.
