In Episode 80, Dan Kreesberg joins the show to talk about raising an outdoor kid. Dan is a naturalist, teacher, and a writer with numerous books, articles, and newspaper columns to his credit - many focused on teaching children how to appreciate the wilderness. So in the podcast tonight, we discuss camping, hiking, and backpacking with kids - whether they are a toddler, child, or teenager.
Dan and I cover topics including taking kids on their first wilderness trip, what to do before you leave the house, what to do when you hit the trail, and we discuss some common mistakes that parents make. Dan also tells us about his 40+ years of backpacking, how he raised an outdoor family, and shares his hiking plans now that his kids are grown adults. Check out Dan's website to learn how to raise an outdoor kid or Best Hikes With Kids for more information.
