Superstition Hike

Because kids grow up WAY to fast, and life is WAY to short!

Life came at us fast, we married young, we had a lot to do, and a lot to look forward to as we began our journey. It was easy to lose focus of our dreams and forget what we were working for. We have spent the last 13 years going to college, working a lot, having kids, and missing the mark when it came to the family/work/life balance. We invested heavily in things of monetary value and lost it. It took a while before we realized that we get way more out of life if we focus our efforts on the IMPORTANT things, the things that last, our family, our education, memories, and serving others.

I work in an Intensive Care Unit where I see people suffer and die all the time. Some late in life after suffering from chronic illness, and others unexpectedly, early in life. I also have two siblings who have died young. It is very clear to me that our days here are numbered and we better make the most of them while we can.

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove…but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”    – Forest E. Witcraft

 We’ve always wanted to raise our kids as adventurers. Giving them the opportunity to explore outside of the box, LIVE life and dream big!

 

The plan:

  • Live life on purpose. Actions speak louder than words.
  • Work, save, and be creative with our finances
  • Be open minded. Things will constantly change, and thats ok.

 

No matter where our journey takes us, we take comfort in the fact that were living life on purpose instead of just trying to keep up with the neighbors!

    Hi there,
    just came across your blog and your bit on Havasu Falls.
    My wife and I will be in AZ in June with our two year old. We are strongly considering. Very experienced outdoors folks, but we haven’t done something of this magnitude yet with our daughter. I see someone in your party did it with a one year old? Our two year old is obviously more squirmy, mobile and independent (not to mention heavier), but we expect some similar challenges. Any thoughts or advice, positive or negative on taking this one?

    thanks!
