Moving Again!

Well, it seems this blog is forever changing! Things have been in the works the past few months for us to move back to my hometown in Ohio. We have a lot of family up there, and have even purchased a nice little house for us all to roam around in! Consequently, the intent of this blog will once again be changing. The region we are moving to is right on the edge of both Southwest and Central Ohio, so I will be redirecting my focus to these areas.

Much of what I covered while living in Cincinnati will still be applicable for this blog, and certainly the extended trips are still within reach. I am excited to explore a whole new landscape, as there are some great parks and trails not far from where we will be living.

I have as such decided to change the name of this blog once again, to The Ohio Hiker, which will not only give me a broader area to cover, but will also appeal to more readers.

Thanks so much for following along and being a part of this blog through the many changes!

Spring is in the air!

I don't know how long this good weather will last, but it seems to me that spring is definitely in the air! It makes me think of all the wonderful times we spent camping, hiking and backpacking during past spring and fall months! Since we live in KY, spring definitely comes earlier than I am used to, but I'll take it! Even if the temperatures dip back down below 50 degrees, it seems as though the cold frigid months have been left behind for good.

I love hiking in the early spring and witnessing all the little wonders of life poking through the previously barren ground. We're planning a short daytrip out to Jefferson Memorial Forest tomorrow, to really get a good hike in and make use of our new child backpack carrier.

We are still searching for a carrier we can take with us on a backpacking trip, but we got a great deal on a used daypack from craigslist. The Kelty Kids 2.1 Carrier:

After we bought it, we realized it was missing the front removable daypack piece, but we figured we would hardly need it anyway. It will just force us to pack light on trips! After trying it on with our daughter inside, we found it was really comfortable, and for only $50, you can't really beat that! Since we saved so much money on the daypack, we can now invest more into a quality backpacking carrier that will last us through the years.

Has spring started to arrive in your neck of the woods? If so, have you got out to enjoy it yet?

Taking Babies Camping

Ever wonder how some parents manage to camp with their entire families, babies and all? We've been camping with our little one a few times now, and I'm here to tell you that camping with babies is not only possible but wonderfully fun as well.
