Some of the outdoor magazines (like DriveOut) have pages filled with ads at the back of the magazine.
How many of us read those ads?

I read them properly and also keep the magazines more for that.

PS. Do not really know why I read it in such detail.

I agree about the prices. I like the fact that Ironman always put prices on their ads.

I also agree on the prices, I want to sit under the tree and compare prices, I do not want to drive around or phone around in order to compare prices.

Read them and then dream about them. I agree prices would be nice.
