I picked one up in Barnes and Noble in the travel magazine section in San Jose, CA for $10. The story isn't what I was hoping for but it was worth purchasing.

I've always liked this magazine and will have to pick up this issue if I can find it locally. I once talked to a guy who knew the owners/editors pretty well. I wish I could attend one of their expos, looks like a lot of fun.
Hope this doesn't drive up Syncro prices though!

don't count on it....10k annual circulation. The "what wheels" thread probably gets more eyeballs.

I got the e-mail, but I can't get the download to work, hangs up. Maybe because TheSamba people are all downloading it now, or maybe it's the 50+MB size!

It is a large file, and took a couple of minutes to upload on both my Windows computer and Ipad, but both worked fine. It is the entire magazine, not just the Syncro article.

It's the size (51Mb, 132 pages)... it kept crashing my browsers. Finally got it though and pared it down to 9 pages.

If you want only the Syncro/Vanagon article of this magazine, click here.

I got my email link saturday from Expedition Portal, the "online" version of Overland magazine. It sure made me want to go out and get mine dirty! That thought will hold till the snow melts and temps rise above 0.

Good story. That would put Lucas very close to me and/or Brian!

Well... Mad . Must've been an upload issue. I've now uploaded it to Google and all pages appear fine: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8MD68iTTRHZb0JyVzU0NWNSRWM/edit?usp=sharing .
