My New GIG

What’s this? You haven’t signed up to receive Glucose Magazine, Ohio’s premiere outdoor magazine? Man are you missing the bus. SIGN UP NOW. It’s FREE so even if it blows you’ve got yourself a free glossy mag filled with various fonts great for cutting out individual letters and gluing to a piece of paper so no one will recognize your handwriting and be able to trace the whacko letter back to you. And that’s worth something!

Plus, I’m writing for them so you know that the magazine is going to be wildly successful.

The July issue will include a definitive feature on paddling in Ohio and some other stuff that will be of interest to people from all over.

As for the name…

If I have to listen to one more person say, “Glucose? Is that some kind of diabetes magazine?” I will personally find the nearest supply of insulin shots and stick you with them until your limbs shake from your torso.

What’s in a name? Heck, I’m not sure what Glucose means, but here is my take: Energy drinks are full of sugar (glucose) that pep people up and help them through the daily grind. At Glucose, fresh air is our source of energy, adventure our sugar high. Or something like that.
