I remember first hearing about the National Geographic Society’s new magazine, Adventure, and rolling my eyes at what seemed to be an obvious attempt to steal market share from Outside, where I was a correspondent. But the two coexisted peacefully for a decade, and I even wrote a few gear reviews for the upstart. So I was sorry to hear of its demise, or at least its transformation into an unrecognizable web presence.
But who knows: Perhaps disgruntled NGA subscribers will find themselves looking for a replacement magazine, a high-quality publication dedicated to worldwide, environmentally responsible travel and adventure. . .
