It was with great excitement therefore that I discovered Andy Amick's cycling website, Pale Spruce, with its large focus on Bikepacking. Andy gives detailed information to newbies like me who might want to get out into the backcountry with their bikes - and children. I asked Andy to please write something for me on bikepacking with small kids since our son is but three years old and not exactly going to peddle his own way into the backcountry.
Here is Andy's story. Enjoy and please read through to the end of the post for more about Andy and how to follow his family's cool adventures.
