Checking to see if it's doable. Our son will only be 23 mos at the time, so discussing whether we're up for that challenge haha.

It takes a village baby! There will plenty of kids to watch the little one running around. We totally went camping with toddlers. Not the easiest but the group site we have picked out is open and grassy and secluded so no fear of running out into roads or into the stream. We set up oregon-trail style around the field so there will be a perimeter. alcohol for mom and dad and juice boxes by the plenty for the kiddos!

@toy4runner - probably not THAT much wood!

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?

With that said - we're planning a FAMILY friendly overland-like trip in Green Ridge State Forest. Friday night July 28 through Sunday July 30. Our two boys, aged 4 and 7, will love to have some new friends.

Plan is to meet Friday evening at Group Site 1 (reservation pending) for some family camping. If you can't join Friday night, plan to meet at the site by 10am on Saturday morning, July 29.

The group will have an overland adventure on back country roads and to some scenic overlooks departing the site about 10am. We'll try to throw in a water crossing or two. We will drive for no more than 4 hours to keep the littles from declaring mutiny from the backseat. Plan for a mid-day picnic lunch stop. Trail details to be announced later. @Sleeter will surely not disappoint.

After adult overlanding, we'll go back to the camp site for some kid-friendly activities. We're thinking tie-die. Mrs. Overland will provide rubber bands, buckets, and die. Bring your own tie-die item (adults too!).

Break camp and head home Sunday or stick around for some group hiking.

We're asking each family to contribute some firewood.

Let us know if you're interested!

@Sleeter , @carlos.elmotor , @propain , @08runnertjb , @Dougthelurk , @Boyds4Runner , @Antman , @Big_Orange and the DMVoffroad team, @Runn4est , @MountainClimber78 , @Toy4Rnner , @Icepuck72 , @BMeister , @4RnR Grl , @floridafj80 , @Hertz4R , @Localmotion , @Whitelion , @GHARP57 , @DavidR1 , @KingTaco , @soze

List of families coming to date:
1. @Sleeter and @MrsOutbound with 4 and 7 yo boys
2. @carlos.elmotor with a 5 yo girl
3. @Hertz4R
4. @techno
5. @BMeister with wife and 3 yo
6. The George Family with husband, wife, 7 yo boy and 3 yo girl
7. The Gruber Family (tentative) with husband, wife, 6 yo boy
Thanks for the invite. We're still sorting out who will be where and when for the summer. Hopefully we'll be free. Count us as tentative.

I've got 14 and 12 year old boys and a 4 year old girl. Oldest is probably out - not a fan of camping. 12 yr old loves camping. 4 year old is down for any adventure.

Still working on it. Camping is out for sure, trying to work it into a day-trip.

12 y.o. daughter giving the shoulder shrug.

9 y.o. not sure about being in a car for so long with no bathroom access.

I have to teach these girls how to rough-it a little bit, lol.

Heading to GRSF this weekend with the kids and dogs. Planning to scope out some campsites, hiking trails and begin planning our overland drive for the summer trip. @Sleeter

Group Site G1 is booked.

Saturdays 4hr drive will be broken up so even the most vehicle weary travelers should have a good time. The trip will consist of ruffly a one - two hour drive around GRSF with a few mellow water crossings, then we will break for lunch and swimming at a swimming hole. After about one hour at the swimming hole we will continue the drive to the next stop which will be a easy walk to the historic and cool Paw Paw tunnel. After some time at the tunnel we will return to the vehicles and travel a short distance to ice cream in Paw Paw. After ice cream we will head back to camp.

During the driving parts of Saturday we will make many stops at overlooks and vistas. This will allow the little ones to get out stretch their legs and explore, hopefully making the day fun for everyone.

Below is the draft route we will take before lunch, the entire route will be stocker / kid friendly. There is one washed out uphill section but it will be easily passable with ATRAC.
