What you think about all things out­doors

MY WIFE AND I re­ally en­joy read­ing your mag­a­zine and find­ing more places to want to walk.

Un­for­tu­nately, our daugh­ters don’t share our en­thu­si­asm for hik­ing - they keep re­mind­ing us that cars have been in­vented and sug­gest we get a dic­tionary and look up the def­i­ni­tion of the word “hol­i­day”.

But while do­ing the Coast to Coast walk in Eng­land a cou­ple of years ago we were im­pressed by the num­ber of hik­ers of all ages on the track.

So last year (while train­ing for Kil­i­man­jaro) and ear­lier this year (while train­ing for the Kokoda Track) we’ve kid­napped our grand­sons (see photo above) and have had them out walk­ing with us in the Ade­laide Hills.

They both love it.

Keep­ing them keen has been easy so far - and hope­fully will re­main so as we show them some of the great des­ti­na­tions in

AG Out­door.

We might have to bor­row them for a week to tackle the Kan­ga­roo Island Wilder­ness Trail.

Keep up the great work.
