Father to 3 kids, who loves getting out and about (hiking, running, camping, cycling, canoeing...) Co-founded Get Out With The Kids to help other parents enjoy the outdoors with their family.

  1. I did manage to get out and do more hiking unfortunately I wasn’t able to go camping this year. I took the dogs on more walks in the woods and did a lot of volunteer work in the local parks with the Master Naturalists, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and James River Association.

  2. Well, we have been out plenty and even stayed at a campsite in February. Though, unlike last year, where we camped in a little tent, this year we had a heated caravan 😉

  3. The year has not started off as well as hoped due to extended ill health following flu over Christmas. Also trying to squeeze in a house move at the same time. However, I have started to make steady progress though a little behind the target.
