The Big Trip

The Big Trip

One of the tricky things with young kids is getting them to draw a mental bridge between the Bear Grylls or Al Humphreys adventures they love to watch, and the sphere of their own experience. 

Al's done awesome work with some specifically kid-based #microadventures, and great tips for getting kids out there, but I still wanted to give the boys something more tangible to aim for and identify with. Some way of placing themselves at the heart of the story.

Enter the Dirtbag Diaries...

Already one of my favourite podcast series, it unearthed a real gem with Otto Gallaher's tale of a family tradition of a Big Trip that I instantly and shamelessly adopted.
