Arizona Adventure Publication

Post by jaysmith » Jun 16 2013 9:07 am

Does anyone remember this newspaper? My father in law just gave me a stack of them that he found while moving, and I've been reading through them for several days now! As far as I can tell, it ran from 1994-1997, but I can't seem to find anything out online about it, though. I wanted to see if I had the full run. There's lots of articles about hiking, mountain biking, Arizona culture and history, and lots of photos!
It is an incredible publication, too bad it was fairly short lived!
It was published by The Tribune every thursday, kind of like the New Times. I wish there was something akin to this now!

There is: It's called HikeArizona.com . :)

Seriously, the paper publishing business is seriously hurting. It's gradually going away. Probably not completely, but online will become the primary source of "printed" news and entertainment. (At least in my case, it already is.) Paper products will always be around, but will become a niche product, similar to what happened with LP records ...

Unfortunately I have to agree with you. I'm a big fan of collecting vinyl and books, and I just can't jump on the digital bandwagon. I'm 30, and it's sad to see all of my peers discarding all physical formats of media and information.

It was a weekly suplemented to the Mesa (East Valley Tribune).

I remember my Grandma having a big stack of them. :)

They're pretty fun to read! I don't think I'll keep them, so if any one wants them they are up for grabs!
I read through each one and made a bucket list!
