Over the years, I have truly enjoyed hiking and camping with my sons. They were Boy Scouts, and I often volunteered to go along on major outings. We did the Hut-to-Hut in the White Mountains and the St. Regis Canoe Way in the Adirondack Mountains. The picture is of me with my youngest son on Breakneck Ridge above the Hudson River.
Once, I almost killed myself climbing a sheer rock face in the Adirondacks. I was the only father who climbed that rock face. Another time, I had to overcome my fear of heights as we went up the face of Tuckerman’s Ravine. These are great memories, and I am so glad I have them. Even better, I still have a good relationship with my sons as adults.
I think success in business is good, but family is more important.
What are your favorite memories of what you did as a family?
