20 Boys’ Life Preview May’s issue features Scouts making a 2,000-mile bike ride to last summer’s national jamboree and Troop 709’s underground adventure deep inside California’s Millerton Cave. Then in June, learn how Pedro the Mailburro got his start and how he’s evolved through six decades in the magazine.
