Hi there. We're a family that has a 2 yr old and a 4 month old children. My wife and I used to camp a lot, probably 50/50 of camping music events and 'normal' camping spots. I had motorbike injury 5 years ago which resulted in chronic pain and 'half' of my arm working 5 years later, I had a completely 'dead arm', nerve damage resulted in my arm not working, slowly healing up. Anyway, long story short, we're back to camping, purchased a camping trailer which replaces a 8 man tent we used to use that won't fit with our clothes + gear for camping now that our back car seat has the 2 little ones. Plus putting up a 'normal' tent with my bung arm probably is impossible by myself. My wife won't take our youngest to a music camping event for a while so I'll be going with our 2 yr old to the occasional music event, looking forward to that.
We plan to go for a weekend away next week to see how we go camping now we have kids plus the trailer, exciting times ahead for our new chapter at returning to the camping lifestyle. We also want to work out what we want/need for future, like possible hot water, generator, cooking stuff besides the basics of clothes, bedding and food. Having kids makes one want to be 'perfect' for them we are finding out, we used to be care free and 'make do' when we camped out, now we want to plan for every possible event before we have gone for our first 'tester' camping trip.
Anyway, hi all and hope we find the love of the great outdoors again, this time with our greatest love besides us, our kids! Also, sorry if this and/or future posts are hard to read at times. My pain meds for my ongoing chronic pain can and do mess with me, but that's life and I'm used to it, hoping I don't give too many headaches with my posts. *does a hello wave to all*
Oh yeah, my name is Warren, Wazza is my usual name/nick, my with is Emma and our 2 children are Cassandra (Cassie), 2 yrs old + Declan - 4 months old.
