This episode begins with an overview of my family vacation to Niagara Falls. Next we discuss the Big Agnes Q-Core air mattress I purchased from REI. Then we talk about what training we’ve done–dad has a weight vest with approximately 40 lbs of weight for solo training–and what we plan to do to get in shape as the trip approaches fast. We end by discussing the benefits of weekly planning sessions, the benefits of hiking with a good conversationalists (or your favorite podcast), and what our backpacking/camping plan will be for the upcoming weeks.
