Mark Stephens (and his wife) were determined that having kids wouldn’t keep them from the outdoors they love.
And it hasn’t.
Their daughter, Chloe, was 5 weeks old when they made their first foray back into the wilds.
“At 5 weeks, you’re in the throes of breast feeding and getting used to what it’s like to be interrupted all night,” Mark says. “I distinctly remember parts of it that sucked. But, what’s the alternative?”
Can’t wait to introduce your little ones to camping? Mark has these tips:
- Plan for everything
- Start with small trips
- Mix in nights with lodging and facilities on longer camping trips
- Take more friends, take more kids
- Be flexible
