I personally think the best thing, as a father, I have done for Taylor is to have exposed him to the mountains at such a tender age. My hope is that he will discover a Gift I have given to him, one he forgot to Open. Truthfully, I perhaps pushed him too hard, too soon, on those then little legs. He was a tough hard trooper and he went to places deep in the Ruahines not many kids will ever see.
To go there one day with both my sons. To stand in a spot I stood in many years ago, looking out upon these majestic mountains and yearning to travel amongst them and know them, which I have done, to stand there with my boys will be a defining moment in my life.
