Duke of Edinburgh Silver Qualification Expedition


“The Road Not Taken”

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.”

Robert Frost – The Road Not Taken has a much more literal meaning to our 23 Silver participants upon completion of their Adventurous Journey. As we reported on September 22, the Silver Journey is not for the faint of heart. The risk of autumnal weather, tired legs and feet sculpted their preparations before the journey. Though with strong mental resilience and a supportive team our participants designed and completed their three day hike through Franconian Switzerland.

As one cohort nears completion of the program, another cohort starts. Eight of the Bronze participants are continuing on to Silver with 25 new participants to the program split between Bronze and Silver. We look forward to seeing the personal growth and the difference that they can make throughout their journey, regardless of which road they take.
