Trooper and I decided to do a big hike this summer. He is only 10 and I had a tough time deciding how far he could go. We finally decided on a 50 miler. This would be a hike he will remember for his whole life. It turned out to be 53. He carried his full pack the entire time. We had close to 12,000 in elevation gain over the trip. It may have been one of the greatest things I have ever done with my son.
