View Full Version : Post your "passed out"
08-03-2010, 11:24 PM
So the "outdoor kid photo thread" is great and all...but it only shows the first part of an outdoor kid's day. This thread is just meant to be a fun spin-off of that thread.
I am sure you parents know, as I do, how much hard work camping with kids can be for us. But what about the kiddos? Running through woods, climbing rocks, crossing creeks and throwing rocks can really wear them out. It's a tough life... :)
Here's my 3 year old after a mid-day hike. We noticed he got really still and quiet while sitting in his chair. He had a towel because he got a little splash crossing the creek on the way back from the hike. Towel = blanket! Momma squeezed her pillow in under his head after we found him...PASSED OUT!
Three weeks ago on a camping trip, we took the kids and dog on a 6 to 7 mile round trip hike. Our friends were also with us with their older dog. Well, the dogs had fun, but when we got back to camp it was time to...PASS OUT!
This one is from last year. My 5 and 7 year-olds and the pooch totally passed out by the campfire. Notice my daughter still has her headlamp on! NO comments about the blanket near the fire. I know what an ember can do, but it's not like me and the wife weren't sitting there right next to them.
Your turn guys/gals...post your PASSED OUT! :coffee:

Oh man, I have literally hundreds of photos of my kids passed out on adventures. Here is one of my boy, he fell asleep and stayed asleep for a 45+ minute ride in our crappy little sand rail out at Dumont.

I also have lots of pictures of my kids being zoonked out. They are excellent sleepers in any moving vehicle!

My daughter, Lily, after an afternoon of hiking. She worked real hard in her backpack carrier.;) She was 7 months old at the time.

Here's one of my son in the back of our 80 after running Pyeatt Draw. Of course, all four of my kids can fall asleep in no time once they get in the car.

My daughter after her first big hike in Acadia a few weeks ago. We were bouncing around on a rough road in the Samurai back to our campsite, and her head was whipping all over the place, making me sick to my stomach...
Man, if there's one thing I hate about all car seat designer, it's that they do not address this issue, on how to immobilize a kid's head when they fall asleep. ARE YOU LISTENING??
You can see the cage I installed this spring specifically to provide for my kid to ride back there...

...and pat yourself on the pack. (pun intended)
We are some darn good parents...if I do say so myself!
Thanks for playing along with my thread! :)

My 8 year old daughter after a full day of traveling and setting up camp - last weekend. It was about 29 degrees at 10,000 feet elevation. Zonked right out.

This is our daughter Ruth, after a 3 mile hike out from an overnight backpacking trip. She hiked probably 2/3-3/4 of the entire trip. She was getting a bit tired and fell asleep on top of my buddy's shoulders....

On the rough road to Gonzaga Bay, Baja Norte....
If you can fall asleep on this road, you can fall asleep anywhere!
...and after a good night's sleep in ExpeditionsWest's old Earthroamer XV-JP!
