Across the Andes: A 7,800-mile Journey Toward Understanding (CMNH Explorer Lecture)

Gregg Treinish and Deia Schlosberg, 2008/2009 National Geographic Adventurers of the YearFri, Jan 15, 2010, 7:30 pm In April 2008, Gregg and Deia became the first people to trek the length of the Andes Mountains, south of the equator, a journey that lasted nearly two years and 7,800 miles. Following the spine of the longest mountain chain in the world, the couple created a new route, often times off-trail and even off-map. Traveling to remote and often never-before-visited villages in the Andes, they experienced first hand the lives of a people who have been living for centuries by sustainable methods. Gregg and Deia will share lessons learned from people living harmoniously with the land while bringing the audience along for the journey.
