Q: We are planning our summer vacation to Washington's San Juan Islands with our toddler. We plan to do a lot of hiking, and an all terrain stroller would be very helpful... but we don't want to lug our heavy, clumsy jogging stroller across the country. (We love it, but it just won't be easy for airline travel). Is there a light-weight, collapsible all-terrain stroller on the market that would work well for traveling. We also don't want to spend too much money on anything, since our son will probably only use it for a year or so before he gets too big.
Sent by LisaEditor: I took a look at the all-terrain strollers on the market and didn't see anything that really fit your requirements. Hopefully a knowledgeable reader or two will have some suggestions. Another idea is to rent a stroller when you get there. Readers, what do you think?
