"They were constantly telling us that we would have to give up what we loved most, the outdoors as we knew it, in order to create a good life for our baby."
This is what Madyson Pomeroy, a wife and mother of a little girl, was being told when she talked about getting outside with her family. Can you relate? We've taken the liberty to share her experience with the Haven Tent here on our Journal, in her own words.
"Is it too soon in this blog to tell you that Haven Tents made my family’s adventuring so much more inclusive? I mean, we can never go back to how things were!
Maybe? Okay, I can go into more detail for you! Because honestly, you deserve to know all the nitty gritty details.
Oh, yeah. IT IS THAT GOOD.
EXPLORING THE GREAT OUTDOORS BEFORE HAVEN TENTS
I guess the best place to start is probably an introduction because I am not sure this story will make sense without it!
So, let’s dive into that, shall we?!
HI! THIS IS US – THE CLARK FAMILY!
MADYSON (ME), DAN, AND EDEN WILLOW.
The three of us are truly best buds, and It has been no secret that adventure is kinda our thing. Ever since Eden was born, we have really tried to make experiencing the outdoors part of our everyday life. You see, while we were pregnant with her, we had a lot of naysayers in our corner.
They were constantly telling us that we would have to give up what we loved most, the outdoors as we knew it, in order to create a good life for our baby.
Little did they know that we had big plans for the three of us.
We were fixing to take the outdoors by storm.
From hiking to camping to backpacking to climbing to snowshoeing to snowboarding. No matter what it was, we were ready to experience it together…
… As a family – even if we had a baby!
HERE’S WHERE THINGS GOT A LITTLE TRICKY
Dan and I are two peas in a pod and both value the outdoors and adventures. That, my friends, has been really great in a lot of ways. Seriously — I don’t think that I could be with someone who didn’t thrive in nature!
But, I would be lying if I said that we always see eye to eye.
Dan is the type of guy that loves nothing more than hiking a bajillion miles deep in bear country with nothing but the essentials. One of which is a can of chicken noodle soup.
Do you mean to tell me that you are risking getting eaten by a bear just to chow down on some mushy noodles?
I would much rather curl up in a hammock with ALL of my favorite snacks and read whatever book that I have by dying to get my imagination on. All while my little sidekick, Eden, runs around throwing rocks into the river and collecting bugs in her Tonka™ dump truck.
What can I say? I’m a sucker for the little things.
WHY I THINK THAT HAVEN TENTS ARE THE MOST INCLUSIVE OUTDOOR PRODUCTS OF THE 21st CENTURY
When you think of an “outdoorsman” I am pretty sure that I know exactly what comes to mind. Honestly, chances are, you are picturing someone who enjoys experiencing the outdoors in the same ways that Dan does.
Although there are a lot of those types out there, there are a whole lot of people who are like me as well!
The ones who don’t necessarily find joy in the big week-long backpacking trips. But instead, rocking in the trees while listening to their two-year-old mumble the lyrics to “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.”
The Haven Tent is the perfect tool for anyone of any level to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. It is a light and packable tent, perfect for long treks into the wilderness.
It is also an easy-to-setup lounging spot, for those like me who enjoy day trips into the mountains with our toddler. After a yummy picnic, Eden and I can relax and take in nature. Sometimes I can even get Eden to take a short nap with me (if you have a two-year-old then you know that those are hard to come by).
HAVEN TENTS GIVE EVERY OUTDOORSMAN THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE ADVENTURE
Honestly, between you and I, I think that that is pretty freaking remarkable! This product is what everyone who enjoys nature needs.
Whether you strap it on your backpack and haul it miles into the great outdoors, or grab it from your car and carry it a short walk to the riverside, it is a necessity.
It has easy-to-use straps that can span most distances between trees. The flat lay tent attaches to the straps with carabiners. I am all about the quick and easy setup.
The tent also comes with a zippered bug screen and rain fly. The people at Haven tents literally thought of everything to make you comfortable and I am here for it.
I am not sure what your setup is for your outdoor adventures but know that wherever I go I will have the Haven tent with me. Honestly, if they were for me and Dan and Eden? THEY WILL DEFINITELY WORK FOR YOU."
