"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Carry Our Kids' Supplies

The project:
Carry sleeping bags, pads, food and more for our kids on our girls' first backpacking trip.

From Backpackin

Three hours or so. (Or six man-hours if you count both of the carriers.)

Why bother?
Making their load lighter made their experience better than it could have been had they carried their own stuff. Wait a minute. Their own stuff WEIGHED more than one of them!

Worth it?
