WHO: Matt and Leah Vest with sons Lucas, 5, and Jude, 6

WHERE:In the woods off the Olentangy Trail

WHEN: May 15, 2017

THE BACKSTORY: The Vest family of Clintonville loves to camp and has been doing so since the oldest son, Jude, was 6 months old. For our cover photo shoot, they graciously agreed to trek to the woods with photographer Rob Hardin and set up one of their tents. Rob reported the boys were eager to help tote his gear—no surprise, his parents said, since they carry their own belongings in frame backpacks on family trips. While Rob set up, the boys explored the area. Check out the Vests' advice and tips from other camping pros on Page 12.
