The Boy Scouts of America recently announced the purchase of more 10,000 acres in the Mount Hope/Glen Jean area of Fayette County, West Virginia. The property was purchased to build a high adventure base in the Eastern United States. The camp will be called The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve. This is great news for the state of West Virginia, especially Southern West Virginia. The Scouts have also announced they are moving the National Scouting Jamboree to this site in the year 2013.

Is this the same Bechtel family that is connected to Halliburton and border security, building underground military bases???
White Sulphur Springs, WV was the former site of the underground military Bunker at the Greenbrier Resort that was declassified a few years ago.
Any chance this whole Boy Scout thing is a cover for "other things" going on in Fayette County, WV? Seems strange. I work in Real Estate and have had quite a few calls from military guys looking for rental housing in the Glen Jean area as well. Very coincidental.
We have also sold quite a bit of remote mountain property to obvious military guys- all paying cash.
The Bechtel Family trust is currently looking to purchase Additional Land in WV.
I could be way off base on this but thought it deserved further investigation. I live in WV.
