In summer 2009, Alex Insel, now 24, and his friend Rich Rinaldi drove a small used Ford Ka 10,000 miles from London to Mongolia on a fundraising adventure known as the Mongol Rally. At the time, he thought it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He was wrong. Insel, a special education teacher at Bay Brook Elementary School in Baltimore, is collecting money so he can again travel the dusty, mountainous route. But this time, he's planning an even longer, more difficult trek. The Mongol Rally, an annual event launched in 2004 by a group called the Adventurists, requires little more than an inexpensive car with an engine of 1.2 liters or smaller, a promise to raise 1,000 pounds (about $1,640 at current rates)

Joshua Parker fell in love in 10th grade, discovering the power of words when his English teacher put a volume of Langston Hughes in his hands. He describes it as a moment so profound that it was like hearing chords of music for the first time. Bright but with a middling interest in school, Parker had suddenly found his passion. He swallowed up books of poetry and scribbled dozens of lines to a girl. "It showed the human condition lyrically," Parker said leaning forward, his hands gripping the sides of a table.
