So here's a question. If money, travel, and all were of no concern, what's the one thing you would like to do with your son? Do you think it's possible? Have you done it? Describe or tell, please...
The one thing I would like to do with my son has nothing to do with travel or money. All I want is to be able to teach him how to be a better man the me.
Assuming that's a given... is there one particular trip you would like to take or an activity you want to make sure the two of you get to do?
There are so many things I would love to do with him. I want to do everytthing that my father never did, e.g. camping, fishing, hiking and so on. I don't care where just as long as I get to do it.
I like Jason's comment a lot and can totally agree that the ultimate goal is to raise my son to be a better man than me. I would also love to take him on a camping/backpacking trip just us guys and enjoy time together. That's something I know I can do but just need to make it happen.
Nice! From the moment I found out my wife was carrying a son, I've been mentally planning the father/son camping trips with just the two of us and with my brother and his son as well.
Mark, is there any particular place you would like to take him camping? How old is your son?
My son is 10 and I would love to take him to the Shenandoah Valley and camp where I camped when I was a kid. Other than that, just any place where we could just hang and have fun, swim, laugh, sit around a camp fire, whatever.
Nice! I was just talking with a buddy about planning a camping trip to Shenandoah
We used to camp right on the river. I loved it and have told my son about the trees I climbed, swimming in the river, watching the deer along the ridge, the bald eagles that were nesting nearby and waling across the river on the fallen trees that were there. A lot of fond and great memories. A little too far for a trip now seeing how we live in the desert of AZ but it's great to talk about it.
I would love to take my son camping. It's a very simple thing but something I can not wait to do.
If time and money were no concern? Here's three things I'd like to do from realistic to least realistic.
Those are awesome targets, Mr. Larsen. I say you make sure to complete all three with your boy(s) one day. Consider it a fatherhood bucket list.
Should you ever want some tag-alongs... Josh and I will no doubt be up for joining you guys...
I'm with Joe on this one. Count my son, Brendan and I in on these as well. These sound like a great list of things to do with our sons!
