    Hiking and Hanging With My 3yr Old

    Went for a hike this afternoon with my son (three years old... almost 4) and we decided that we would take along our hammocks and try to take a nap. We found a great spot right by the river, but the snow started up and became too much for us to take a nap (I didn't bring the tarps). Anyways, this might be a boring video, but if you have kids or just really like trip report type things then you might get a kick out of it thanks for reading/watching.

    I have kids, and I like trip reports ... and I did get kick out of it.

    Way to go!
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. -HDT

    This is great. My son is also almost 4 and loves being outside. We've camped a couple times so far. In fact we have a trip planned for Jan 7th, and I hope to camp outback a few nights over the holiday too. Here is Mom helping him in with is cousin.

    Good job dad getting him started young thats the way to do it! He is a little trooper looked like that grass was about as tall as him and he made it all the way out there, he is a tough little guy and like you said if he is having fun thats all that matters! Too many parents now days just stick there kids in front of a tv or video games. Great job dad!

    Ahh thats cool. I hope the Grand-daughter will want to go out with me come summer. I was sleeping last Sunday early in the morning when she crawled into the hammock with me from her bed. Stayed there from 2 to about 4:30 when she moved over to be with my wife where the 2 dogs and 3 cats were. Big ole fur fest there. She spent the whole night in her bedroom last weekend. Two and a half, won't be long before I don't have a snuggler again.

    ha, that's great stuff! as he grows a little more, do you think he will stay involved in the out-of-doors?
    if so, you gotta check out this line of packs for kids.. search for "little light gear"

    Is this still in business, all the web links say it isn't found.

    I was thinking about making a small pack for my little guy, basically a stuff sack with straps. His backpacks are heavy and big on him. He has a superman pack like in hikingdad's video, it weights 1.5lbs by iteself.
