A picnic basket is easy to throw together and a great excuse to get outside.

Give some thought to accessibility-appropriate locations to take your Old Mate. Parks, lakes creeks, and beaches are good standard options. If your Old Mate is still fit and active, then consider a small walk or hike to a location with a great view - it'll make the picnic at the end of the trek all the more rewarding.


If you decide to pair your picnic with a walk:

  • Check the whether in advance and pack appropriately.
  • Ensure you and your Old Mate stay hydrated throughout the walk.
  • Make sure you have a back-up transport option if your Old Mate tires.
