An epic scouting adventure

I just heard about this expedition and I had to share it...

As you know I am an Assistant Unit Leader for Lincolnshire for the next World Scout Jamboree. And I am thoroughly looking forward to leaving at the end of July for that adventure.

But for some the adventure has already begun. Actually, they set off in OCTOBER 2010!!!

Yup, two Australian Scouts, Adam Kilpatrick and Stephen Warren-Smith, are riding recumbent trikes from their hometown of Adelaide (South Australia) to the Jamboree site in Sweden!

And it's not as if they are going straight there either... they are riding to Perth, flying to Cape Town then covering the entire length of Africa before going through the Middle East and Europe to get there!

That's a minimum of 22,000km
