Backpacking with a baby

Posted in camping on June 25th, 2008 by stormy – Be the first to comment


There’s an excellent article on backpacking with babies on CNN.  While it’s got some good advice, let me tell you, that woman is a super-woman. She carries a 28 pound toddler and a 30 pound pack! When we went backpacking with Caleb, I carried Caleb and a few emergency supplies like water, food and diapers. Chase (the dog) carried a few things and Frank carried everything else! And we were both beat when we got to the top.


We’re thinking about taking both the kids  (almost 8 and almost 2) and finding a place where we can hike in just a mile or two. That way Frank and I can do  a couple of round trips if necessary.
