so i have ran across just jeff page and a few others and i was wondering how do you pack for kids?
my kids are 7 and 9... and we have all been doing 5 - 7 mile day hikes and everyone has been doing just fine but I have been the mule lol. so the wife and I are planning on doing a 1-2 night hike at land between the lakes here soon. So I am tring to get all my gear together to see what all is going in the wife bag and mine. as for the kids their bags are 1 pound 3 oz and I plan on them just carring water and hammock with top quilt( we will be going when it is a low of 70 out ( wives' request) so I now have to get a bag for the wife and I. will Rei let me take all my gear in and pack a bag to see hgow it fits? Because i don't know what size to get.
any advice on what and how you pack with kids would be awesome and bonus for excel spread sheets on the bags( I am an addict already)
