What adventures will you get up to with your Dad?
Celebrating adventures with Dad.
Every year another adventure, from trips to the park when you're young, to searching the hillside for that bothy you knew was there last time - dads are, for some of us, the spawn of every adventure. All the encouragement I ever needed came from my parents and my dad taking me on that next camping trip, up that next hill...
We want everyone to get out on an adventure, any excuse to leave the office, get out of the house, go camping, go for a ride or generally to Go Nice Places and Do Good Things... but as it is Father's day this month (we've put some present ideas together here) then while enjoying your own summer adventures why not team up with your dad for a father's day challenge this year? To give you a bit more time let's spread it out till the end of June. Whether that's something stretching into the night, or simply making as much of the day as possible - get out there and enjoy the outdoors. Here's last years winner.
We would love to hear what you get up to, so send us your stories and photos by email and we'll be picking the best story to send a special bundle of outdoor essentials to dad, consisting of Tippla - for dad's favourite tipple, Nonic - for that new IPA and Lampray - for light and portable power anywhere.
The winner will be announced on July 6th.
Don't forget to share as you go about your adventures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too, tagging it #AlpkitDadventure #goniceplacesdogoodthings - We will be shelling out spot prizes throughout the month.
Now step away from the computer, find a map and get out there, and don't forget dear old dad!
Of course with its long hours of daylight, June is a great month to get out after work and cram as much into an evening session as you would into an entire day, and still be back at your desk the following morning.
