Editorial Reviews


"I keep thinking this has got to come out as one of the greatest experiences for these boys. I would put this up with any amount of education, any amount of travel and any amount of history. I just can't say enough about an organization that puts itself through a thing like this." -- Mal Bellairs, Former Radio Talk Show Host, WIVS-AM, Crystal Lake, Illinois
"Take a deep breath ....prepare yourself for the journey of a lifetime!" -- D.G.Torrens, Bestselling Author of Amelia's Story
"A heart warming and inspirational story of the Boy Scouts. I would give it 10 stars if possible. ....something for everyone in this book and you certainly don't have to be a boy scout or interested in scouts to love this book!" --Maurine Roller
"Paul Rega wrote a page-turning story--especially for us 'Baby-Boomers'!" 

From the Author

Trail of 32 chronicles an amazing feat about thirty-two boysand leaders, who rode their bicycles nearly 1,400 miles from theirhometownof Wood Dale, Illinois to Jacksonville, Florida in 1972. At 14 years old, the author was ajunior leader on the trip. 

This is a true coming of age story about growing up in the late 1950's through the early 70's. There were no cell phones, GPS or even bike helmets at that time. However, the Scouts were armed with their new Sears Free Spirit 10-speed bikes, and a unique set of values they learned as children. The historic trip has been hailed as the longest organized bike hike in the history of Scouting. The boy's adventure was covered by many TV and radio stations as well as several newspapers throughout the country. The book contains 24 original pictures from the trip, many taken by the author in 1972.
