Looking for Backroads Magazine

Does anyone have a copy of the November issue of Backroads Magazine? There are 2 articles in it about CCR, one by me and one by the editor, Brian Rathjen.

If someone could either mail me a copy or scan the 2 articles and e-mail me, it would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm a subscriber. As soon as I get it, I will post it here.

It's a great magazine that covers lots of the local area.

Thanks, Rob. I have someone else in CT who already received his, but he can't get it to me for a while. He has to cycle thru several people first!

I tried to get both articles but the magazine is oversized (like Rolling Stone size) and doesn't fit on my scanner.

Here is your article:



I will bring the magazine into work and try my scanner there. I may have to shrink it on the copier and then scan it. It's a shame because the pictures are great!

Nice job Jay!

Thanks, Rob. Although I wrote it, I was curious to see just how badly it had been edited!. Not at all, as it looks.

Thanks for the posting. Backroads is sending me a copy of the magazine, so I can see the other article, too. I believe it is written by Brian Rathjen, the editor ( who has Shira's permission to call himself that!). They were both at CE and are still talking about the good time they had.

Kudos to everyone who helped to make that happen! You are all special people!
