Last time we checkied in on Venturing Crew 365 from The University of Evansville, they were taking part in the BSA's ATV pilot program. Getting muddy on some ATVs was a blast, but a little later, they were ready to move on to something a little faster.

Zip lines and canopy tours have taken the New River Gorge area by storm. This one, located at Burning Rock outdoor adventure park http://www.burningrockwv.com/, just a few miles away from the Summit property, is actually the longest zip line in the eastern half of the United States.

Bonus: The Burning Rock Express is a dual racing zip line, so the Venturers were able to compete against each other to see who could reach the end platform first. The zip lines themselves are 2500 feet long (a half mile!), and riders (zippers?) reach speeds of up to 60 MPH, and descend over 300 feet in elevation.

Join the us for more Adventures In Service as we move closer to the Grand Opening of the Summit Bechtel Reserve at the 2013 National Scout Jamboree.
