    No, we couldn't go out this past weekend. My husband was away on business, and I need him to watch our youngest (age 3) while Alex and I hike. I can't carry my youngest daughter and my pack at the same time on a long hike.

    But we'll be out this coming weekend!! We can't wait.

    (The blog in my signature line is a journal (with pics) of the few trips we've done so far.)

    Thanks again for the warm welcome everyone!

    Every day that I am not hiking, I'm spending whatever few minutes I can snag checking out the trail reports of others, analyzing maps, dreaming of the next hike...I wish I could just live hiking around all the time. Who needs money, eh?

    Welcome guys,

    We hike as a family, but as the kids get older we don't get to do it as much as in years past. We started the kids early in life, I believe my son did Washington the first time when he has five (though some family members believe it was four). Some of the best conversations among the family have been on the trail.

    In any event it can be a great time together as long you have a fair degree of patience and a sense of humor. As a mom of two, I assume you have both!

    Look forward to seeing you on the trail.

    Welcome to the site!! There are so many great people here who will gladly give you any information that you need or want. They've been really great to us in the last year.

    I'm a big "what-if'er" too on the trail, and I don't even have a child to worry about! That's OK, don't let it stop you from getting out there!

    Enjoy the mountains!

    Glad to have you join us here. Wonderful to see someone getting the kids out early. We've been getting my daughter out with us since she was about 5-6 (but nothing as big then as you are doing now with your 5 year old). She's 13 now and tonight we were helping her get her pack ready for the 7 day AMC backpack in the 100 mile wilderness that she starts Friday. She says its the best thing she's doing this summer! Keep those kids on the trails and away from the TV, video games and computers!!! Best of luck with the rest of your summer hikes.

    Yes, but someone has to worry about Tim.
