The Great Outdoors-bringing families a little closer each day!
Picture your family in the perfect setting, and it just might be together in the outdoors. It's natural that we might feel that way because for the vast majority of the time we have been on this Earth, intimate interaction with the outdoors has not been an option - just real life.
But, bucking our natural instincts, we have "improved" our lives by filling them with diversions from what is really best for us. Of course marketers have preyed on our laziness and other weaknesses, and we have become sedentary and slaves to technology...addicts to screen time.
It's never too late to make positive changes in life - for ourselves and our families. But, it has to start with us creating an attractive alternative for our families, and doing so by example. Mom's, Dad's, Grandparents,...whoever, we need to get educated on how to make fresh air, mountains, streams, hiking, fishing, hunting, rock climbing, or whatever a central part of our hearts and our family's hearts!
It won't work to one day tell your 15 year old teen that your going to go off the grid and tough and rough it. Your going to have to use your creative genius to help them want it. And that will lie to a great degree on you becoming an expert outdoors person.
Let's do it together. You will find tons of great info here, and we hope you will share some of your own.
