We built this site because we are you.
Eight years ago, faced with the impending birth of our first child, we asked ourselves. “Is it all over?” We knew friends who had hung up their rock shoes for good, mothballed their tents and committed themselves to a life less wild.
Thankfully, we got some key advice from sage friends that set us on our path. Using this advice we have been able to:
Take our daughter up her first Fourteener, Mt Elbert, at six months old.
Live for months at a time out on the road. AND it’s awesome!
Bring our three year old on her first river rafting trip down Ruby/Horsethief Canyon.
Watch our four year old put down 7+ mile days on her first backpacking trip.
Continue to tick off life-goal peaks and climbs such as the Grand Teton, Mt Rainier, Moonlight Buttress, the Naked Edge and Castleton Tower.
Climb way harder than we ever did pre-kids.
And so much more.
