Adventure Science’s 100 Miles of Wild Expedition to the Tsingy de Bemaraha (Madagascar): Part I
blog 31 Aug 2014 | 3:30 pm
When most of us plan trekking expeditions to far flung places, we have the luxury of using detailed maps and of having easy access to information useful for plotting an adventure. From experience, though, I can tell you that the real fun and adventure comes from planning an Adventure Science expedition to an uncharted part of the world— no maps, no trails and little previous exploration. The sense of wonder, discovery and gratitude can be overwhelming when traveling in areas such as these.

Hard to beat if you...
Still Collecting Jambo Patches
Blog 31 Aug 2014 | 9:03 am
Maybe I should not have done it. After all, it has been 13 years since that event was held. But I had a good time and a great group of Scouts along so I will always remember the 2001 National Jamboree fondly. So, last night I decided to try to expand my collection of patches from the Jamboree. I decided to try my luck on eBay.
When I buy patches for my collection I have a rule I kind of follow: unless it is a very special patch that I really want badly I will only pay up to $5.00 per...
