Why I renewed

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Just wanted you to know that the reason why I have kept your magazine above all others is the quality of advice by your experienced writers.

I can collect lots of info on-line but would rather not follow the “tried it once and it seemed to work” folks.  If I have more experience in the subject than the writer their articles usually just waste my  time.

Keep up with the good writers and I will always be a subscriber.

Magazines in stores

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

We have been looking for the Sept/Oct Issue and we cannot find it in any of our stores. Are the books still being delivered to the Gwinnett / Barrow County area in Georgia?

We would like to subscribe to the magazine but our postal service is terrible. When we get books and magazines they are most always damaged.

If that is the only option we will probably subscribe because we like to read the magazine.

We send magazines to subscribers in a plastic sleeve, so they are seldom damaged.

Backwoods Home online

Friday, September 25th, 2009


I think your magazine is very nearly perfect.

We will store our print copies forever!  An online version would make poor toilet paper in a disaster situation!  So, don’t waste your time and effort on an online version!

And this comment is from a “buy nearly everything off of the Internet” high tech geek guy with a degree in electronics!

Oh, as an aside, some of us are vegetarians and are NOT left wing whacko’s!   So an occasional vegetarian recipe is always welcome at our house .

Thanks for such a great magazine!  This will be the last subscription to go as we go softly (or not) into the Greatest Depression….

Another Libertarian abandoned by the R[epublican] party!

You are right!

Thursday, September 17th, 2009


In [the September] newsletter you mention that when you give good people “free” stuff they will eventually return the favor.  I bought your magazine off the news rack and learned about your website.  I spend much more time on the website, but as soon as the magazine cover changes I head for Barnes and Noble (last night!) to purchase one because I certainly want you people to stay in business.  I have not missed a copy since I purchased the first one.

Oh – and please don’t tell anyone – but there are a few of us conservatives lurking around college campuses.  We are mostly in the vocational technical areas (We have SKILLS), but so you know we are out there……

Also, you might mention to John that this morning I had to wait for a gang of antelope – a momma and twins, blocking the road, slowing traffic (1 car – me) and threatening vehicle damage if I went more than 5 miles per hour…this IS a real problem.  They must have run the deer gang off for now – that is the group I usually see.

No subscription renewal

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

I read your magazine for the informative, entertaining articles on homesteading and country life in general. If I wanted to have someone force-feed their political views down my throat, I would pay for that in a separate subscription. Leave politics (right, left, middle, all of it) out of your magazine if you would like to keep a wider audience. Of course, it is entirely your right to publish whatever you choose (and I fully support that freedom), but I for one will not be renewing my subscription. I suspect I am not entirely alone in this decision.

I will check back on-line occasionally to see if things have changed.

Thanks for supporting my freedom.
