X-Lander X-A stroller pushchair review

When I started this blog over two years ago, I never thought I would be doing baby gear reviews. But, as my Grandpa said, "If you keep a boy and girl horse in the same corral long enough, your going to get a foal." Just after our 10-year wedding anniversary, the Mrs. and I welcomed our son, Parker, into the world. The running and biking has slowed down a bit, but now dad gets to buy cool baby gear! However, we are not here to review bottles, highchairs or nappies. Only gear that is suitable for taking your newest addition outdoors and "into the nature" makes the cut at RHBP.

On tap today...A badass, big wheeled, welded aluminum, off-road stroller that you can order in army green with fur accents. If you aren't familiar with the X-lander brand, you are probably from the USA where they are not yet available; or you are looking for a sissy, plastic stroller, that struggles off of the smoothest pavement.

This pretty much sums up the company.

The Definition of Insanity...

The definition of "insanity," according to Webster is, "a deranged state of the mind usually occurring as a specific disorder (as schizophrenia)".

The better known definition is "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." This definition is actually a quote attributed to everyone from Mark Twain to Albert Einstein, and I think it is crap. If this were truly the definition of insanity then the act of practicing a skill, craft or sport would be insanity.

This brings us to "the hill".

Tremble in its majesty!
