No post about running… Not enough of that lately with a knee that’s acting up.
We are, however, heading out on an adventure next week: a week exploring a 40 mile section of the Ozark Highlands Trail. We’ll hit the most scenic parts, with waterfalls, stream crossings, and all kinds of fun. 7 days in the middle of nowhere!
This week will be spent going through backpacking lessons with the kids. We’ll give them basic lessons on what to do in a variety of things, like how to set up camp, how to make a fire, crossing rivers, etc.
Lesson 1: Making camp. What to do when we arrive at our destination for the day. They know how to set up their tent, but we’ll make sure they can do it efficiently. Who does what when we get to camp (Luke begins collecting wood, Hannah sets up the tent, etc), how to pack it all up the next morning. Should be fun!
