For the outdoor folks that are looking to be a little more active. Here is a mild adventure date idea for you: Walk The Mountian!
Concept, Needs, Expenses for the Mountian Trail Date
Here it is for you straight. You drive to a mountain. You walk the mountain trail. You talk the whole time.
- You’ll need a good pair of shoes, a light jacket perhaps, and some snacks + water.
- This date will cost you about $10 and 2 hours of time.
Step 1: Success On Its Way
You need to prepare for this. I know what you’re thinking. “It’s an hour walking trail.” FOOL! It’s a death march unless you prepare correctly. You need to prep your date for this one. No surprises. Make sure you both have good walking shoes, some water, and a few snacks. We packed an entire lunch!
We suggest going out to Radnor Lake State Park if you are in the Nashville Area. If your not, look for a state park around you. They are made to walk. We have also found that if you have a chance to walk up or down first, choose up the mountain first.
Step 2: Conversation & Exploration
If you thought step 1 was a good one, here is the best part of the date. Conversation & Exploration. When you’re walking a train, look for the signs that explain about the trees and flowers. Your date may love reading. Find yourself a nice lake and skip some stones. See if you can widdle a walking stick. I once found an old log filled with ants. The options or unlimited when you’re walking a trail.
