Backpacking with a (almost) seven year old (planning)
A little over a year ago I took Edward out on his first overnight expedition. It was a lot of fun and quite easy because we used a youth hostel. Now he’s a bit bigger we’re off again. This time for two nights and we’ll be camping.
I’ve planned a route through the far edge of the Yorkshire Dales, next to the Howgills. We’ll take a train to Kirby Stephen and walk over Wildboar Fell, Baugh fell and back to Garsdale station for a train home.
The route I have in mind breaks down like this…
We’ll only go if the weather isn’t awful because I don’t want to put him off!
