Two-Year Hike to Attend a Boy Scout Jamboree

These two guys are checking out their shoes, and for good reason. They walked from Venezuela to Washington, DC to attend the Boy Scout Jamboree, leaving on January 11, 1935 and arriving June 16, 1937. That’s right, they covered Venezuela, through Colombia, then Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, then through the southern US all the way to DC. More than 10,000 miles. Here they sit at the steps of the Capitol Building.

We hope they earned an extra badge!
