Paul Salopek's Out of Eden Walk project, a seven-year trek around the world following the path of humanity's earliest ancestors, has been featured in a news story by Bryan Wendell, senior editor of Boys' Life, Scouting, and Eagles' Call magazines.
It's the ultimate chance to "Live Scouting's Adventure," a phrase that happens to be the theme of the 2017 National Jamboree, held July 19 to 28 at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia.
That's no coincidence. To be eligible for the trip, a Scout or Venturer must either attend the 2017 National Jamboree or complete a Philmont Trek in 2017. He or she must write an essay about the value of slowing down to absorb one's surroundings, record milestones from the jamboree or Philmont trek, and complete other Out of Eden Walk tasks.
