Default Camping Problem- dad wants in *HELP!!!*

I've been planning a camping trip for about a month or so now. It is going to be a secluded tarzan like trip. Yesterday my dad was complaining about not having enough money to go on a trip this summer. I brought up my trip,- not a good idea. This is because he wants to go now. The man is 61 years old with high blood pressure. I am planning on traveling on foot a MINIMUM of 20 miles a day and living off dehidrated food. He sits on the computer all day and is a Jewler. On the way there I am going to be speeding and blasting Ramstein, Crossfade, Matellica, Disturbed, and Techno. Music he hates. I really wanted this to be a trip for myself to let it all out before I have to start hardcore work. BTW- I am going to SE Oklahoma- the Ouachita Moutains. I am really conserned now. HELP!!

Say your meeting up with a girl, and you need the privacy.

He works a lot and has to deal with my mother. He really wants a break from it all. I'd feel pretty bad just telling him, "you can't come". I wouldn't mind him coming if he were younger. I've told him that i'm concerned about how well he will hold up to the extreme hiking i'm planning on doing. The high blood pressure thing concerns me the most. 170 over 89 was his last test WHILE on high blood pressure medication. Somehow I think he took my concern as a challenge.
