Only one article in, plus some impressive headline browsing, and I can’t wait to spend more time on this website. The Adventures in Parenthood Project explores the transition of outdoor adventurers to family life. I first stumbled onto an article titled The Kid Question: How an Adventurer Decides to Become a Parent and was stoked by its parallels with the primary goal of the The Recreationalist.
Check it out and if you find something worth sharing please post in the comments below.
Some people see children as the end of adventure, others see it as the beginning of a new kind. We can’t know what we can’t know, and we’ll never find out if the grass is greener on the other side. All we can do is commit to being 100% content with whichever choice we make – whether we’re holding tiny hands on a new trail or flaking out a rope on a big wall with no kids at home to think about. The point is, no matter which we choose, we can still be adventurous.
