    Very awesome! I'll always remember the camping/hiking trips with my dad. Never know how long you have. He always made time for me and taught me how to be a real outdoorsman. Your son is a very lucky (as are you to have a son to share with) to have an awesome Dad! Congrats to a wonderful accomplishment!

    Incredible! Thank you so much for sharing. Your son did great! I enjoyed the pictures.

    Where exactly did you two go?

    Nice! Pics looks like he was a happy partner! Some of the best times me and my son had was when we would get out together. I may cherish them better than he.

    Way to go Dad! May you have more moments like these!

    AWESOME! He will remember that trip for a lifetime.

    I'm in awe of you two. That's an incredible adventure.
    Ya done good Dad.

    Years from now, you will look back on this as fondly as he will, maybe more.
    When my 25 year old comes home from the Army, he wants to know where we're going camping. Sure makes old Dad feel good.

    Wow, makes me feel good just seeing Troopers smile, I know you must be really proud of that boy.
    I would like to take my boys out for a few days hike, but they are both growing gray hair and claim to be too busy. I didn't take time to do those things when they were young. We sometimes make mistakes. I am glad that you are taking the time, and you always will be as well.
