House Adventures

DAS Outdoors A Little More Adventure adventure challenges Family Comes First

I want to talk to you about House Adventures.

You'll have noticed that I've been talking a lot about adventure since the New Year.

Specifically on how adventure varies from person to person.

The idea behind all of this is we want you to embrace adventure, no matter where on the kind of adventure scale you are.

The shelters that we make from repurposed military parachutes are hugely popular with those that are already in the outdoors, going wild camping and sitting around a fire that they've built.

The bushcraft and wilderness skills type of person.

House Adventures

But that might not be you!

Since we made the transition from army surplus to outdoor shelters, we've been meeting and talking to more of you that don't naturally do those sorts of things.

That could be because of access to land or equipment or perhaps you are a little fearful of the unknown.

What you do have in common, is the urge to have a little more adventure.

An interest that, perhaps with a little more help and advice, could develop into something more.

We've been thinking a lot about how we can do that.

During that thought process, we've realised there is so many more of you that we could probably help.

From those of you that are already going out and doing wild camps to those of you that have never climbed a tree.

We're all different and, as we've said before, what you same is adventurous can be very different to someone else.

By questioning what adventure is and taking a step back from what you might see in a film, television, in books or in social media, we can actually look at ways of having tiny, tiny adventures and building them.

For those of you that don't class yourself as massively adventurous, this is a very important note.

The people you see that appear to have lives full of adventure and wonder; they started off by having little adventures too.

Then they built on that knowledge and experience of those little adventures.

Building and building and building and building until you get to something that is seen as being really adventurous.

Over the coming weeks, we're going to be sharing articles and videos all about adventures that you can have in and around the home.

House Adventures

We're gonna pare things right back and start from the very beginning.

What house adventures can you have, without even leaving the house?

I picked my daughter's brains for this.

She's seven-years-old

A Sunday, a couple of weeks back, I said "Maggie, we're going to have some adventures in the house at the weekend. What do you think we should do?"

Floor Is Lava

This is the list we came up with:

  • The floor is lava
  • Lava monster
  • Stepping stones
  • Den building
  • Conservatory observatory

There will be blogs and videos published on each of these House Adventures over the next few weeks.

In the meantime, what ideas do you have?
