I was raised on camping and have tried to pass along those good time to my children. Two of them have even been on 3-week backpacking excursions deep into the Alaskan Bush. It's amazing what you can teach your kids and learn from them at the same time.

I just can't say it enough.  Some of the most beautiful and coolest places right here in Colorado can only be seen by hiking to them. Don't think of this 'hike' as work. Think of it as a once in a lifetime chance to spend time with your family in a way that makes you forget all about this digital world we live in.

Well, this Saturday, we will be transforming the B.W. Pickett Equine Center into a mecca of outdoor fun. It's a great opportunity to get you engaged and inspired about all the outdoor adventures right here in Colorado. The Great Colorado Outdoors Show, presented by ChooseNissan.com and the local Front Range Nissan Dealers, will cater to all kinds of outdoor enthusiasts no matter what your outdoor adrenaline rush might be.  You can even ride a real motorcycle if you have ever wondered what it's like or if you aren't sure about buying one...test ride a real motorcycle and you can even sign up to win a new 883 Sportster Iron with Thunder Mountain Harley. (It's strapped down on rollers and doesn't move.)
