How has your dad shaped your experiences in the outdoors? Prompted by a message from new father, Peter Amend, we asked you to share your stories and received a breadth of responses. We found that our dads have had a profound impact on our relationship with the natural world, even in his absence. Included in this episode are 21 voice memos from women of all ages and backgrounds. It’s a big Venn Diagram – some of your stories overlap, but each is uniquely her own.
