Default Summer holidays

Well, today is the last day of term for Nathan. The obligatory sponsored
walk today and then no college until September. I forsee lots of
'suggestions' about day rides coming up over the next six weeks so there is
no total vegging out in front of the TV ;-)

Cheers, helen s

Well you could try the "Have you ever been to xxxx?" "No". "Here's a
map, tent and sleeping bag, off you go". Time for an End to End?

Sometime soon he will discover sex, drugs and rock & roll. Then who will
you go riding with?

So far he's discovered the rock & roll and he's had loads of information
about safe sex and the good idea of avoiding drugs. I have a family member
who pretty much ruined their life through drug abuse, and I've been very
open about that with him. So as a parent all I can do is hope I've given him
a loving, secure base where he can cope with what life chucks at him,
avoiding the bigger pitfalls. As for the cycling, good job I'm an
anti-social biddy who doesn't mind riding on her own ;-)

Cheers, helen s

At least this mean you'll get the trike back.

Doesn't it?

Exactly my thoughts.
Give him some independence and let him experience fending for himself.
An E2E would be an excellent good choice.

My daughter, who i think is Nathans' age has a number of independent
cycle camping trips already lined up.

Bit of a problem though, she's just landed a holiday job in a firm of
acturies (her chosen career path) at so many zillions per hour [1]

[1] for a younster anyway.
