One of the comments we hear really often here at TBA is that mom and dad love to hike, but the kids very often don’t have the same opinion – at least at first!  Meet Sky and Scott Martin, parents of three previously reluctant hikers (Erin 14, Katie 8 and Malachy 3) who live in […]

Is Stroller Running An Outdoor Adventure?

When I found out I was going to be a dad I was bursting with excitement. I was thinking of all the things I would do with my son and all the memories we would make as a family. I was surprised though to have so many people tell me that I wouldn’t be able […]


Crazy Family Adventure

All of us who go to the outdoors have likely fantasized at least once or twice about leaving the rat race completely. Just taking your family and living wherever you want, whenever you want. Of course, this is impossible for most of us. Or is it? Apparently not! Craig and Bryanna of “no fixed address” […]
