Growing up, my family often took adventure vacations. At 12-years-old we took a week-long rafting trip down the Selway River in Idaho rafting over significant rapids and an occasional waterfall. We backpack camped in the Cascade Mountains on numerous occasions. It was here that I first observed the transformative power of new experiences.
My wife and I find that it’s getting harder and harder to travel with our four children. Not only because of school, sports schedules and all of the arrangements that need to be made ahead of time for families with small children, but also because of the high costs involved.
My wife and I have come up with some great ideas that we try and follow when we travel, in hopes that families in similar situations can make their travel more enjoyable (not to mention affordable)!
I have a reputation at Birchwood for traveling to interesting and what some might call exotic locations. I know by some of our conversations, people are thinking…why?
