Over the past 4 years or so, of creating and publishing Ripcord Adventure Journal, the team involved in bringing it to print and digital editions has been on a marvellous journey of discovery and adventure in their own right. None of us had prior experience in publishing an international periodical before, our strength was derived from the unstinting support given by our adventurers and explorers who have written and photographed their journeys for us. Furthermore, our delight has grown as our readership and audience have rocketed to unexpected but very welcome heights, particularly on our digital platform: www.yumpu.com/user/worldexplorers where we have reached almost 8 million views. In this period we have published so many great articles that we felt it timely to pick a single article from each issue and present them here in a 2014-2018 Revisited issue, the eight articles which follow have been chosen by the editorial team to reflect the broad interests of Ripcord Adventure Journal and I hope, will serve to introduce our many new readers to previous issues, all of which, continue to be available for free on our digital platform. We aimed to be the home of authentic, adventurous travel, which serves as a starting point for personal reflection, study and new journeys; we hope that you enjoy reading this free digital Journal and encourage you to share it widely. As this will be the final issue of Ripcord Adventure Journal, we hope that you took inspiration from our amazing contributors and that you may follow their adventures into the future. On behalf of the editorial, writing and design team, I wish to acknowledge our outstanding sponsors from day one, the World Explorers Bureau (Charlotte Baker Weinert) and Redpoint Resolutions (Mark Cohon, Thomas Bochnowski, Ted Muhlner, Martha Marin, John Moretti and all the team).
