Fearless

This girl is fearless.  She is kind.  She is smart. She is STRONG. She is my daughter Casey, and she is 8.

She knows how to play in puddles (evidence above).  She knows how to ice fish, rock climb, set up our tent, camp, hike, regular fish, snow ski, and now water ski (see below).

She is part of our family with this guy–who is also a stud.  He too knows how to fish, hike, camp, and I have personally seen him hike 1500 vertical feet over 9 miles (there and back) when he was 5 (he is now 7) in the high sierra.  He too is learning to fish and is becoming a good man.  He is an athlete.

And, finally, my little nugget Meredith who is as carefree as they come.  She is truly a breath of fresh air, a free spirit, and she gets a little tired keeping up with her brother and sister.  She is 4.

This is our family and we have another one on the way (just found out that he’s a boy)

We’re trying to raise our kids with exposure to the great outdoors and want to use this as a forum to keep ’em interested.

Our Camping Machine

IMG_9898

So this is our camping machine.  It’s a lifted 2008 Tahoe LTZ with a Defender roof rack.  This thing gets us everywhere we want to go.  I swapped out the 20 inch rims with black 17 inch rims and 35 inch all terrain tires to show a little more rubber.  The kit is made by Skyjacker and I went with the 3.5 inch lift version.  I eventually may add a winch (probably Warn) and a chilled-out front bumper, but for now this is really all I need.
