Understanding your adventure purpose can prepare you for many unplanned situations. Read below our suggestions for your upcoming trip
1) Know your why
Why are you going on this adventure? To join a group? To cross off a bucket list item? To accomplish an achievement? Make sure you know your why before you pack your gear- it'll save you time and help you prepare better.
2) Treat your adventure as a project
Create a to-do list and a supply list, even make a goal list for your destination. You'll thank yourself for listing out the materials needed and your end-in-mind.
3) Set a budget
This is important in almost everything you do. It's fun to be spontaneous, but when you're out on your journey and you've already spent your funds on that souvenir- that you absolutely must have- all of a sudden you have an unexpected expense. Make sure to budget for any costs that may occur- impulsive and planned.
4) Do a test run on all your gear
For any journey, make sure you test your equipment out. Whether it's in your home or testing it out during a short adventure, it's essential to know your equipment will not fail you when it really counts. If possible, always pack extra batteries, charges, and other supplies. The weather impacts functionality, so keep that in mind.
