One of the biggest complaints many have about backpacking food is the lack of fresh veggies. We’ve tried every tactic to get legitimate fresh veggies out there, and it’s possible, but dehydrated kale is the best option we’ve found.
We’ve been making a point to camp together once a month. It’s an easy enough goal when it’s just a local overnight trip, but the reward is huge. We get to spend quality distraction-free time together, the kids have learned to love camping, and we get some golden recipe testing out of it.

Ever since I moved away from my best friend in Florida to go west, we’ve talked about meeting up in a cool place halfway between us for an adventure.

It’s been a hiking kinda summer. In the last year or so, a hiking group has naturally formed which we’ve named Trailchuggers. It’s a silly name but it’s something to hang on to and it motivates us to coordinate 5 different schedules so we can get outside and have an adventure together.
