Thanks Tim and Kimber for another great issue.

You got it already? What kind of shape was it in. I have already heard a report that the cover was mangled. I know that happens but want to be sure. Also, how does page 15 and 18 look???

I received it a couple of days ago, in great condition. Pages 15 and 18 look good, what is your concern? Finished reading it today.

And my sticker was right where it belonged.

I got mine Friday, undamaged, looks good, no set up issues a novice like me would notice. Also no blurred printing that I can tell. Looks good and reads well. I'm about 1/2 the way through it.
thanks!

Got mine Sat

It's in great shape. Looking forward to reading it!

Any way to subscribe to it without being a VAC member (without even owning an AS yet to be honest, though I hope to have a vintage unit in the near future!)?

We got ours three days ago. Cover was pristine. We did have a blurry page 26 (18 was a little bit, but not as much--all still very readable). Great write-ups on Death Valley, battery testing and bearing repacks! Thanks, Tim!! The new VAC sticker was a cool surprise as well! Awesome issue. Keep up the good work!!!

I got mine yesterday. Cover intact. A little double print on page 11 at the top but good in other areas. Paper seems whiter and thicker than in the past. Free decal is an unanticipate surprise. Merchandise is reasonable price. I never knew the club provided the free service of getting an owner's manual. Thanks Forrest McClure for providing the service. I understand the one for my 63 would be pretty small but the one for the 77 is rather large and I still have the original. Thanks anyway.
