    Loved that post! I’m currently in the same boat – my life is awesome and I love being able to hike wherever and whenever I want, so why do I need to have kids when it’s going to change all that? I’m still trying to figure it out and have been spending a lot of time with my friends who have babies and kids to see how they stay adventurous while parenting!

      It will definitely change things! I know we will still hike and camp and travel but I definitely wont be scrambling up 4th class in the Sierra with a baby on my back haha. Its only a matter of time before they are old enough to keep up though! I started to change my mind about kids when I saw parents with their little ones out backpacking, I cant wait to expose my kids to the outside.
