This one week of the year is something we look forward to all year long. It's been crazy enough doing this with three kids, I will admit. However, as we have now been at it for three years already, we decided to add an extra element: our new dog.
We have been backcountry camping since our oldest, who is now 8, was 9 months old. Trev obviously had some experience before we started. There is nothing like being surrounded by wilderness and waking up to nothing but the sound of birds singing and waves lapping the shore. For us, camping is not about being minimalists and “surviving off the land”.
