Father's Day 2016-06-19

There are many times that I really appreciated my dad, Dennis, but this picture is a major one, as this hike to Limehouse to camp overnight on the Bruce Trail even overwhelmed my mom, Emily, as she thought it was too much for us to carry packs as big as us, but it taught me to not be afraid of the ugknown, and that all things come to pass. It set me up to face unfathomable challenges such as this hike and beyond. It spoiled Scouting for me, even though my dad loved Scouting so much he wrote a book about his time as a Scout and was a Scout leader in my day, because nothing we ever did in Scouts ever came even close to this overnight hike pictured here, with drinking from a natural spring even. 
Thanks Dad !!!
