One thing I have always loved is being in the great outdoors. However, there have been times where I was not the most prepared due to faulty planning. That is why I am going to share with you 3 key things you need to consider when planning your outdoor adventures. Some of you may be thinking that I already know everything there is to know about how to prepare for outdoor adventures. If that is the case then by all means then this article more than likely is not for you. In this instance I am speaking mainly to those who want to get out more but are scared they do not know enough or worried that they would not have a good time and for that purpose I would like to shed some light on a few things so that you can get out in the great outdoors and see some beautiful scenery that will be unforgettable.

Skill Level

Skill Level? Really? How dumb do you think I am? I don’t think you are dumb at all. In understanding where your skill level is at when you decide where you want to go is one of the smartest things you can do first when planning your next outdoor adventure. It does not matter if you are going camping, backpacking, hiking or whatever it is. For example, you have always wanted to go rock climbing but have never gone in your entire life. Do you decide to go out by yourself, find an amazing rock climbing spot and start to climb that stinking cliff without any prepping whatsoever? I would certainly hope not. That means your dumb and dumb and the outdoors truly do not mix. It is imperative that you understand where you are at skill wise. That brings me to the second thing you need to consider

Resources and the Experts

Once you have decided where your skills lie when it comes to being in the outdoors, I highly recommend consulting resources and the experts in whatever you are deciding to do. Take the time to learn and educate yourself and to even gain more experience one step at a time. Read Blogs, books, talk to those in your circle that thrive in the outdoors themselves and have always been trying to get you to go too. Go with them on their own outdoor adventures and shadow them.

The Type of Outdoor Gear

There is one winter campout I went on for a scouting trip that was the most memorable. The reason it was the most memorable was because I failed to pack the right gear and I was cold the entire time. I spent most of my time in the headquarters tent that had a massive heater trying to keep warm but since I was required to participate in the activities there I could never be there for long periods of time. From that time on I always made sure I had the right type of outdoor gear and prepared ahead of time. To help you prepare for your next outdoor adventure I have compiled an Adventure Checklist that you can download for Free to help you figure out the right outdoor gear you need.
