Note from Fidgit:
I wrote this piece for Adventure Scientists while walking through Bolivia. They are an organization crowd sourcing data collected by explorers to be used in research. They “envision a world where a grassroots wildfire of scientific advancement creates balance between people and the environment.”
The organization was the brain child of Gregg Treinish, who walked Across the Andes in 2006-2008 and left a helpful GPS route I relied on heavily while planning our tracks. Now we are excited to contribute to a few of their current projects.
