21 Inspiring and Outdoorsy Parents You Should Meet: Their Blogs, Tips and More

They say it takes a village to raise a child. I say: even better if that village shares your interests and some of your philosophy on child-rearing. Imagine my joy when I discovered a wonderful online community of other outdoorsy parents from throughout North America – from Alaska to Georgia, Alberta, Colorado and beyond. This group has been keen to collaborate on articles, share each other’s new blog posts, and also offer up tips on outdoor parenting. I thought it was high-time to feature a bunch of them!

I asked each one for their favourite posts and their tips for new parents who want to get in the outdoors. I hope you’ll be as inspired as I am by their wise and encouraging words.

  1. Great post! I will be bold to say it should be 22 Inspiring…. Since 2001, I’ve been helping families get out on trails and have been writing about those experiences and tips since 2009, blog.hikingalong.com. Most importantly, I love being outdoors with my own kids and students I teach daily. I look forward to helping more families when my book “Best Hikes for Kids: Washington DC” is released this summer. Cheers to transforming our nation into nature’s stewards!

  2. I want to be a part of this someday I have been working on my site and article for some months now. My passion is to share that a family that does stuff together stays together.
    Love this site.
    God bless all

  3. It’s great to see more and more families pushing the envelope on what you can do with your kids. We have pursued the road less travelled with our son for the past 10 years and it is amazing. He mountain bikes, kayaks, surfs and climbs but has no idea how to play football! We’re off on an 8 month roadtrip right now Chasing the Sun and his upbringing has allowed him to just roll with it. http://Www.chasingthesun.ca

  4. In the case that hail damage is not severe, it is entirely possible that a person will
    have to pay for his or her repairs entirely out if his or her own pocket.
    In the case of car insurance, the policyholder has the
    right to exercise the insurance option at the time of an accident so that the insurance company essentially buys
    the policyholder out of the negative outcome (the damaged or destroyed car).
    In case of damage of an automobile this often could be the only help that
    individuals can expect to own.

  5. * Torch for i – Phone 4: You can use your i – Phone 4 as
    a flashlight by using this app, with the help of LED
    flash. When done, you can share it as a video in ‘Facebook’ (you’ll be amazed how
    vibrant the colors appear in the ‘Paper’ app. supports almost all audio file formats and permits multiple downloading at once.
