#MyDadsAdventure - What did you inspire him to get up to?

Microadventure 800 535auto

We set the challenge to Dads and kids everywhere to create a small adventure to get Dad out of the house. We set out some groud rules and added interesting ideas - A Dad's Adventure

After checking out all of the entries, across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook (Check out the Tagboard online), one stood out that fitted in really well with Al Humphrey's simple Micro-adventure idea that is doesn't have to be big and flashy. Anyone can do it, it just means getting out of the house. 

We have popped a full set of Snapwires off to Simon and a copy of Al Humphrey's MicroAdventure book. Simon took his son on an overnight camp, packed his bike light and pulled his son in a trailer. One night out in the wilds of South Wales ending on Father's day morning. Simon also made a short video - 

We love to hear about all of your adventures - it inspires some of our own! Keep an eye on Alpkit's site for our team's trips and staff MicroAdventures.

Have Fun.....
