433. Distant Drums Beginnings
Not long after Ian August lost his life due to the regless operation at Skyline Wilderness the owners started this new program.
We have not been able to interview teenagers who was so unfortunate to end up at the program. Parents who were affected by the earlier operations of the owners were very concerned. The bad PR must have shut their program down and left them without customers. They used Distant Drums Beginnings and started a new program called Eagle Quest.
The concept of Distant Drums Beginnings sound very much like the concept of the owners earlier enterprise which makes it safe to state that it could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
