Adventure 40 - The one with the babies on the 'Bib'

Where: Bibulmun Track, Northern Terminus, Kalamunda
When: May 2017
Adventure Companions: Mr MAP, Mini Monkey, Giant Baby and the Hike it Baby crew.

How many babies can we get on the sign?

I posted a photo of the Bibulmun Track Northern Terminus sign on the Hike it Baby Facebook page to generate some interest for our upcoming hike. The bets I had ranged from 5 to 11. I thought that was a little ambitions but we ended up with 9 kiddos and 12 adults, our best numbers for a hike yet.

It was a beautifully sunny day and we all set of pretty hopeful. The littlest of the kiddos surprised parents in how much they wanted to walk, the real babies refused naps and the older toddlers wanted to be carried. It was pretty topsy-turvey!

The Northern Terminus is not a great place to start a hike for the babies as it after a couple of hundred meters the trail runs alongside a road for a bit. Whilst this isn’t much of a problem for people who walk even for a couple of hours, it forms quite a large proportion of the hike when you walk at the speed of an 18 month old toddler. However, we have done it. We have the photo to prove that the babies have started at the top and now we can get down to the real business of hiking more of the beautiful trail.
