Yay! Backpacking with kids is a good time. It leaves everyone with wonderful memories and kids can learn so many valuable lessons on the trail. Thank you for sharing your trip report.Aug 14, 2022 at 5:01 pm #3757372Greg PehrsonBPL Member

Awesome! Congratulations and thanks for sharing!
For kids’ rain gear, I’ve had success with buying used Patagonia on craigslist, eBay or Patagonia’s WornWear, and then reselling it after they grow out of it at any of those places and buying the next size. It holds its value so well that you often come out even or close to it.Aug 22, 2022 at 9:02 pm #3757882DanBPL Member
