We’ve received a few emails about the
photograph used on our June issue cover
that shows improperly installed rigging. In
fact, many feel it is a very dangerous situation that needs
to be rectified.
We agree 100 percent. Though that wasn’t our first
choice in cover shots, it was a last minute deadline call
without our taking careful examination of the photo.
That’s one of the pitfalls of the publishing business!
We’ve reached out to the SkyLodge people in an
attempt to have them change the rigging before anyone
gets hurt ... or worse! We’ll keep you updated if, and
when, corrections are made. Who knows, they might have
already taken care of it since those photos were taken!
Thank you for your interest in our publication, and
please feel free to send us an email if you have a
suggestion for an article or even if
you want to critique something
