As a kid, some of my most vivid and cherished memories are spending time outside with my parents. Growing up in NH we had access to mountains, rivers, lakes, the ocean…a true playground for any outdoor enthusiasts. Now, as a father, I try my best to raise my son the same way, teaching him to love the outdoors by taking him camping, fishing, standup paddling and hiking (Though he still hasn’t caught the hiking bug like I have). It gets too easy these days for kids to get caught up in the electronic jungle rather than opening their eyes to the wonder, beauty, and excitement of nature.

This is why I love seeing Dad’s like Darrell Kirk raising their kids to love adventure and mother nature. Our hats off to you Darrell!
