I started camping and hiking and exploring at around 14 years old. I took a trip to Florida and then to Arizona. I spent an entire summer in a tent. I dug a hole for an out house. I dealt with rain collapsing tents in the middle of the night and scorching heat in the middle of the dessert. Canteens of water would quickly seem like they were filled with boiled water when left in the sun. But I also watched the sun set and rise from mesas, or prairies so vast I couldn’t imagine the end.
Some Tips for doing well and having some fun in the great outdoors
In this week’s episode, Dave and I talk about a few tips we have for making your first efforts out more enjoyable.
In this week’s episode we discuss our big trip of 2016, Kentucky. What we did, how we liked it and what we would have done differently. Additionally, we talk about out next yearly trip, the Linville Gorge in North Carolina.
Thank you for listening, if you have comments or ideas for the show, let us know in the comments on The Campin’ Canine.
A Failed Adventure and a new perspective
David is back for episode 6, and in this episode, we get right to stories. My story is about taking my German Shorthaired Pointer for his first hike, trudging through knee deep water for over a mile and ultimately turning around and heading back. David’s story is about hiking in the white mountains in New Hampshire. Experiencing warmer weather at the beginning of the trail and finding 3′ long icicles at that top.
