Abstract

In their concluding chapter, Pike and Beames (2013) acknowledge the “messy” complexity of outdoor adventure and its role in society where many aspects once widely accepted are being called into question and critically examined. While accepting that there remains much to be said for outdoor adventures, the authors articulate a growing acknowledgement that outdoor adventures can also contribute to a range of problems. In this article, I seek to ground some of these concepts in the context of my own practice: a family holiday.
