The Adventurous Journey Write Up is a document you create explaining what you did on your Practice Journey and on your Qualifying Journey. 

Here is a document you can download and use to do your write up. Click HERE

You don't have to do your the write up in this format. You can do any document you like, or you can get creative and do a powerpoint presentation, a video, a scrapbook, or any form you like. 

Questions you can answer in your report:

1. What training did you have towards your qualifying journey? 
2. How did your practice journey prepare you for your qualifying journey? How did your qualifying journey challenge you?
3. Why did you choose to make this journey?
4. When did you take the trip?
5. Where did you go? Give exact locations, trails, describe terrain, etc.
6. How did you travel? Method of travel from actual start of journey to completion - canoe, hike, snowshoe, ski, etc. (not the time spent in a vehicle to get to the location) 
7. Who went with you? 
8. What did you experience? What did you learn? What was your biggest success?  
9. What would you do differently?  What insights would you pass on to anyone else doing this journey?
