Dads! Let’s say you’re on a longer hike through a beautiful National, State, Regional or County park and one or more of your kids is stating that he is tired and doesn’t want to walk anymore. Say this: Oh, I know what you guys need. A walking stick! Then make one (i.e. find a fallen branch and tear off the extra bits) for each child.

It might gain you an extra half mile.
