[two_third][/two_third]We had so many great sponsors during out Hike it Baby 30 challenge, and in turn lots of winners! We have decided to do fun profiles on some of our amazing winners! Alissa and her son Odin took on the challenge in Bellingham, Washington and rocked it! For all their hard work they won some cool Winner Profile-Alissa Pruit (1)Discrete Banger Beanies so they will be able to stay nice and warm this winter!

I love oyster dome in our hometown here in Bellingham. You get a great view of Bellingham Bay and the san juan islands.

Tell us what you like about Hike it Baby

I like the motivation factor of this. If I ‘think’ about going for a hike it adds weight to saying ‘yes’ rather than ‘no’. We would get outside in the rain more often too.

What is the best advice for a new hiking family?

Be prepared for all elements and make a realistic goal to be outside at least 30 minutes each day!

Why is it important to you to have your kiddo out in nature?

Becaue it is good for our health and I want my child to be comfortable in all elements starting at a young age. Our family is very outdoor oriented and we want our child to feel comfortable outside and not fear it. It makes us feel better to be outside!

How stoked are you about your win!? How will you use it?

I am excited I won some beanies! Can’t wait to see them! We will surely use them for Odin when he is outside and will pass them down to someone else when he outgrows them 🙂

What dream outdoors trip do you want to do?

I would love to bring our family to New Zealand for a hut trip when our son is older (>6). In the meantime we are teaching him to ski this year and spending weekends at our ski hill in our trailer on the weekends. Looking forward to that this winter!
