    Start 'Em Young!

    I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

    There’s your child’s birth and then there’s the first time they lay in a hammock. I hate to admit which one was more special.
    Get lost in the woods and find yourself again. A vacation,to me, is working with your hands and surviving because of the fruits of your labor. In the business world I teach;in the natural world I learn.

    I have a 9 week old son and am already starting to try to figure out what age is appropriate to start taking him on trips, heh...

    You should probably wait until he can walk. Otherwise, you'll have to carry him, and that'll REALLY screw up your pack weight...

    I had our daughter (now eight months old) in a hammock with me as soon as she could sit up with assistance!

    It really is a heck of a lot of fun. She was giggling the whole time. However, she wasnít thrilled when I tried it yesterday but that was in a hang under my new winter tarp.

    My daughter's first hang was last fall, she's been to every one with me since
