    Hiking Hadrians wall

    at least virtually. We joined a waking program called conqueror challenge which offers various hikes around the world. My wife and I decided it would be fun to do as a family so invited the grandkids to join. It is a paid service with medals for completion and (the part that excited my grandkids) they plant trees. I posted a picture of most of the team from a hike we did 2 years ago in grand teton national park. I've visited once before but hiking it for real would be cool although I doubt I'll ever be able to visit long enough to do the whole thing

    I had also seen this challenge and thought it was a wonderful idea. Not enough that I stepped up-yet.

    friendly warning

    We are doing the teams and with a large group that works better for the longer trails. Hadrians is 90 miles and between 7 people in 2 days we are already over half way there. The grandkids are excited about it and although they don't need to be taught to be active it is just a fun family get together in this time of solo life. I am enjoying it and my second daughter didn't join our group (we'd have finished in a couple of days but she did sign up for the Appalachian trail solo. She's a runner (a few months ago she did a 50 miler) You can also set up your own trail I believe.

    Yes. Each time we've seen the grandkids for a special event we've let them pick their clan. First year was dinosaur, then super heros and last time pokemon. I made pokeball sporrans for everybody but one. He wanted a raccoon.
