After a hearty strawberry pancake and bacon breakfast, we headed out to Camp Pinnacle for GNAR, the gnarliest kid's adventure race ever. The elements had not advertised so we did not know what to expect, other than a huge slip and slide and we needed our bikes.
We arrived at the venue, checked in and walked to course. The kid was soaking it in and I was excited to share my race knowledge with him.
We dumped our bikes and headed into the woods, traversing the climbing wall, and then to the rope swing, balance beam, target shooting, hoop throwing, tightlining fun times. Coming out of the woods, we were excited to get into a boat. There was a time when I was ACA whitewater canoe and kayak certified, and it had been a while since I had been in a boat. It came back quickly and we were greeted with cheers of excitement as we slid through the water. The kid did a great job in the bow, executing a perfect backpaddle to get us turned around to head back to the dock.
I'm proud of my kid.

We'll be back next year!
