Zeteo is Reading Contributor Tucker Cox is currently traveling. He is expected to return next Thursday with his next post about great travel writing. He has a lifetime goal of visiting 100 countries on 7 continents. It might be said that he is now 87 percent of the way there.
The photograph, of professional backpacker Andrew Skurka, appeared on a National Geographic website about “Today’s Ultimate Adventurers.” Tucker — though not featured on the site, and though (or because) he does more with literature than with snow — seems to us to deserve “ultimate” consideration.
