Life for me turned upside down on 24th July 2007 when Ifor was born and the amount of outdoors time that we had before hand changed for the worst. We have tried to keep our outdoors lifestyle up to date since then but through necessity have had to compromise. I’ve blogged before about how the Macpac vamoose has really helped us still go outdoors but this article from Stephen Regenold has some great tips about what to do when your life turns upside down! In particular his tip about slowing down when you have kids is a great one. You may not get as much in as life before chidren, but what’s important is your experience changes and incorporates your kids which for us has added a new dimension to our camping and hiking.
