Hello from Essex
Hello everyone, I have just joined this forum as in addition to family camping which I do a fair bit of, I am now venturing into the greater outdoors with backpacking for both myself and hopefully my son who is almost 13, desperate effort to get him off the damn PlayStation and computer and into the outdoors as I did when his age.
My intentions this year are to do some rambling/hill walking and a few overnight stays around any of, peak district, lake district, new forest, northern wales and the Scottish highlands to gain some good experience, have fun and gain some great memories.
Any fellow Essex backpackers here?
A very warm welcome for you to the forum here at OM then, buntonn.
Not from Essex but further north, I do have a 13 year old who is also hard to get off his gadgets though he has been up a few big hills.
Hi buntonn, welcome to Outdoors Magic. Good luck with your teenager!
