041 – Hiking with Kids: Interviews from the Trail

Show Notes

In this second episode on hiking with children we are take our niece and her two oldest sons aged 6 and 9 year on their first overnight hiking and camping trip. During the hike we get to hear their views on their first overnight trip. This episode is linked to episode 040 where we talk about considerations for hiking with children prior to hitting the trail.

This episode is pitched at hiking with children in the five to 12 age bracket. Modify this guidance for younger children by shortening the distance and simplifying the activity, and place greater emphasis on personal responsibility for older kids.

What is a Podcast?

While many people are familiar with podcasts, to some the term is an unknown. So what is a podcast? The best way to think of a podcast is as digital radio on demand. You get to listen to a program of your choice at a time of your choosing and through your preferred technology e.g. the computer, a smart phone, or a tablet, etc.

Podcasts have the advantage over other types of electronic media in that you can be doing other activities  such as driving to work or exercising while you listen.
