We moved to a small, Scottish village and are very outdoorsy. Love to hike, camp, etc.

 

I found that it is nice to cook food indoors and then take it all up the hill in a pot, making a fire and having dinner there. It rocks. There is something very crunchy in sitting around the fire as a family, as opposed to sitting in front of screens. 

 

I am currently pregnant and am wondering what gear will be best for new baby? I have bought a baby carrier (the ones on the back that can be folded out as a high chair, but it is only 6+ months).

 

So far, we have a large tarp that we put up whichever way we like, tents, insulation mats, gas stove, axes for fire wood, good knives and a saw, sleeping bags (for adults though), special flasks and pots, outdoor cutlery and metal mugs. And a nice radio that you wind up when battery is empty, plus wind up torches, too. 

 

Anyone else? What do you do outside? How do you spend quality time outdoors?

Bumping up for more attention!

My husband and I love to backpack, and I've found a wrap/moby wrap to be a great way to hike with baby from the earliest days on. Wraps are easily worn with a backpack, as well.
