Decide What Activities You’ll Do

“Outdoor adventure” is an extended term. So, recognizing what it means to you before embarking on one and planning is essential.

Are you going for a hike or camping? Or are you a surfing lunatic? You might even opt for skydiving or heart-stopping bungee jumping.

Settle for at least one activity that would accelerate your adrenaline levels. Then, you can have second or third options that aren’t deal-breakers if you fail to achieve.

Pick A Location

Ok, so now that you have a perfect picture of your outdoor adventure, your location should be next on the list.

Begin by picking how far you can comfortably travel—if it’s a week or two, hopping on a plane to your perfect destination does no harm. But, if it’s a one-day or weekend trip, stick to your immediate area locations. Settle for destinations with trilling must-do activities. Then, peep at the secondary activities to fill up your itinerary.

Write a Packing List

Once you are all set up with the destination and activities, create an exhaustive packing list >for your adventure. Note everything you will need, even if you have the mightiest brain that never forgets. Compose a list of all the van life essentials for maximum comfort. Remember, one vital thing left behind leaves you having a very rough time on your adventure.

Plan for Adverse Weather

Sadly, mother nature never stops taking its course. If you are in for some last-minute trips, be sure to check with the weatherman before stepping out. If you plan for a journey that’s months ahead, frequently match the weather pattern as the date draws near.

Design a plan if you realize rain is in the forecast. This may call for postponing your trip, assembling special gear to keep the fun despite the rain or go for rainy-day activities to keep you busy on that specific day.

Tag Your Friends Along!

Fairly self-explanatory. Sometimes, treading the same terrain with entirely different people yields an altogether different and memorable experience. Not that you have to repeat trails, but some are great when visited when you bring your friends along. The memories might turn out very overwhelming.

Being outside is good for you. Sometimes, you got to break that solid routine of work and taking care of kids. If you get some little free time, don’t spend it perched on your coach glued on the TV. Instead, think of an outdoor adventure and soak up that Vitamin D.

    All Trails Lead to Riches!

    All season long, I am outdoors testing new products and consider them for reviews, some I keep, many I don’t. For the ones I don’t keep, once reviewed and photographed, I give them away to followers of The Outdoor Life blog who have subscribed to my newsletter! Products are typically for Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Kayaking, Camping, and other outdoor activities. Once I accumulate 3-4 items, I use an online random picker and select a name for each item, email you for your address and send it on its way. No strings attached!
