Recommendations for magazines and books

What are the best print resources for expedition travel?

I am looking for magazines and books about the subject. Forum like this and the www.expeditionportal.com are great, but I would like to spend some time away from the computer too.

So, what are the best mags and books about expedition travel?

Thanks

I really like Australian 4WD Monthly. You can get a subscription here in the States through Stonehouse Publishing.

Highly recommend Sahara Overland by Chris Scott http://www.sahara-overland.com/

Ya, i ordered that one, along wit hthe DVD's for it.
I also got the "Long Way Down'. England to the southern tip of Africa -- apparently that is somewhat of a "common" trip for British/European folks looking for a decent-length trip.

It is quarterly, and the last one came out at least a month ago. Its a physically high quality as well as a content high quality mag.

Two issues ago, they drove North of the Artic Circle and the tires froze to the ground when they stopped to take a picture Thats tooooo cold for me!!

We had a pretty cold winter this year, but my tires never froze to the ground!
We had to plug the block heaters in for like a month straight though...

Another vote for Overland Journal.....at least I get to travel vicariously...and Sheppard's two books....blast, they're at home or I could tell you the titles. I think they're both out of print though.
