Training my future climbing partner !

Mrs. Z and I were off introducing our bestest grand buddie's Jack and Ava to some trails this weekend. While Grammy and Ava took the easier way home I had a little surprise for Jack. Seeing I like hills I need to get Jack into hill loving mode so I can have a future climbing partner. Besides I figured our roles with be reversed in about 10 years and he'll be telling my Grampy pain is delicious.

Fantastic! It's not just biking with Grampy, it's a lesson in perseverance and an object lesson that "you can do it!".

You will be in his head and his heart forever.

He is one lucky kid to have you in his life.
