Welcome to The Outdoors Dad – a site dedicated to fatherhood and the great outdoors.

“The Outdoors Dad” is a reference to a particular type of man, not any one man in particular.  The Outdoors Dad is authored by a son, father, brother team. It features articles and stories about fathers and children playing and working together.

In a day when the “popular media dad” is often portrayed a dumb slob or sort of a clown, it is time real fathers stand up as the mentors and parents we need to be for our children. We hope to build a community of dads, aspiring dads, and other mentors who enjoy the outdoors.  We will cover serious parenting topics as well as the frivolous and fun. We will share ideas for activities and outdoor adventures and we hope that you will share with us too.
