Humans of the Outdoors: A Call for Entries

Humans of the Outdoors- A Call for Entries - mamanonthetrail.com

One of my favourite forms of “research”, when it comes to getting outside, is reading other people’s stories. I like gear reviews, I enjoy how-to posts, I pour over lists of dos and don’ts, but what I’m really after is that personal connection. I want to know that someone else out there, someone like me, went on a similar trip… Read more »

Huckleberry & The First Six Months - mamanonthetrail.com

On Thursday, April 23rd, 2015, around 6:30am, we learned that we were pregnant. Fast-forward 32 weeks, give or take a few days, and we became parents! That sounds easy right? Ha! Anyway, this post isn’t about my pregnancy, nor the birth of our little Mister Huckleberry, so I’ll save those details for another day. Instead, I’d like to simply reflect… Read more »

However, there is a part of me that is looking forward to the lack of structure/direction in my outdoor time, and the lack of… Read more »
