It wasn't very long ago that I was lamenting the fact that there weren't any serious outdoor companies showing families in their marketing materials. About a month later I got a catalog in the mail from Mountain Gear with this on the cover (please excuse the poor image quality):
It's a family! Outdoors! Together! At night! In the winter! Wow... think about it... that is pretty extreme when it comes to families. I mean, how many families do you know would go camping in the winter? (I am assuming they are camping, they have a sleeping bag...) This is inspirational. We need to see more of this so that families know it is possible. Good job Mountain Gear, keep-it-up, I now have a new respect for you!
On another note... I am still waiting for photos from our night under the stars last week. The guy who took them was a student and he is gone for Thanksgiving. As soon as I have them I will post a follow-up.
