We have done one trip with the family, it was actually a lunch. We went to the farm walked out to the back pasture (about 30 minute walk) and had lunch. We used just the equipment in our backs and we had brought some Mountain House meals with us. We got water from the creek, used the portable stove, and actually had enjoyable little lunch.

We need to do a full scale overnight test, but the wife would never agree to that (I understand why because her RA makes it hard to sleep on the ground), but she is interested in doing a day hike, just got to find time to do one.
