CACHE PHRASE This is a race to radio home about, 10-4? Colorado Scouts use GPS devices, ham radios, and Morse code to navigate a high-altitude course and snag hidden caches along the way. Your Scouts can decode their own geocaching tips and tricks in this October Boys’ Life feature.


ABOVE AND BEYOND From a base camp at William I. Koch’s Colorado ranch, Florida Troop 150 squeezed every ounce of adventure out of its 11-day cross-country trip: rafting, fly- fishing, rappelling, and more. (Even a Bigfoot sighting!) Relive the heart-pounding activities in September’s Boys’ Life.

SPEED READING In October, Boys’ Life readers will climb into an IndyCar driver’s seat—just in time to get their motors running for the Oct. 16 Izod IndyCar World Championships in Las Vegas.
