Today I have the privilege of guest posting for KC over at SomeWiseGuy.com. KC’s blog is all about life and leadership for dangerous dads and manly men. So, I thought I would share a story about my dangerous and manly dad…and some things that I have learned about being a dad (parent) from watching my dad.
Here is an excerpt from the post. Be sure to check out the complete story on SomeWiseGuy.
I watched my dad a lot while I was growing up. I know, we all watched our parents, didn’t we? Sometimes my dad knew I was watching and sometimes he did not…like the time that he apparently gained clearance from the FAA to perform as a low-flying aircraft.
When I was in 7th grade, my dad took me on a camping trip with our boy scout troop. We pitched a tent. We hiked. We chopped firewood. We built a campfire. We cooked food over the campfire (including smores). It rained. We had fun. And we had to leave early so that I could be back home in time for a soccer game.
We were supposed to leave really early Saturday morning. However, we overslept. We hurried to get things settled and into the car. We left late; really late. And, as my custom was, I sacked out while my dad drove.
Now for the low-flying aircraft part…
