This is a site to help you get your family outside. We (Cynthia and Curtis) have decades of guiding experience and years with their kids getting them out hiking, canoe tripping, climbing, snowshoeing, and many other things in all types of weather. We both feel that kids need to be outside lots. They don’t need more time on devices or in front of screens. They need to read real books and play with abandon. They need to get pushed and challenged and be shown how strong they really are.

This is a site to share our tips, tricks, struggles, and thoughts on gear for your family to get outside lots.
