Real adventure is hard to discover because of an obvious shortage of some prerequisites. The team has to try and be open to new challenges for a new Discovery. It’s only possible if all the checkboxes are ticked. Now, in order to confirm that everything is in place, it’s better to identify it. To solve any problem, the first step is to recognize there is one. So, the prerequisites of any real adventure might be hidden in solving those issues prior to planning something like that. Some might address those issues as quantitative and/or qualitative, but this really needs to be recognized first.
Here is a list of what you can do before planning any adventure to make it real and potential fun. Not only from your side, but it is the responsibility of the whole group to be like what is mentioned below.
Open to new challenges
You might have heard of this phrase a lot of times but implementation is difficult for many. Experiencing new adventures is all about new possibilities and opportunities to explore something with both arms. Additionally, it is not recommended to just close your eyes and jump into the pit with a let’s face it attitude and some spontaneity is always welcomed. Planning some important bits and leaving some unplanned is the balance you have to maintain.
Some priority stuff to pack and collect
Convenience on-the-go only comes when you pack light without compromising on the necessary stuff. It’s a difficult balance to maintain but very crucial for your adventure to be real. For your help, there are various backup options which become a huge necessity on the spot. For example, when it comes to mountain biking in Crested Butte, it’s not possible to have spot-on information about everything you might experience. But, it is evident that the location is suitable for this adventure and various bike shops in Crested Butte are there to take advantage of people who are not aware of the appropriate prices of renting a mountain bike. Or when you go outside for skiing, the locations with an abundance of snowfall have various shops for renting those ski equipments but would never help in cost cutting.
Follow the drill
The creative attitude of many people holds them from following the boring but necessary drill for safety. The drill has been specially designed for beginners and some others who claim themselves by experts. Many people try to create something new with the adventure which might not be suitable or dangerous for them and others. For example, while performing water sports, we have seen many people jump out of the Kayak. The drill never recommends you to jump out of anything during water sports unless and until it is a total emergency. The primary reason why people do that is to demonstrate how spontaneous or creative they are.
Always be in the research mode
Talk to the locals, read some books or anything that improve your knowledge of the location to explore. The research model might be different for different people but it always helps to know about what you are actually experiencing. For example, be curious to know what the locals think of the tourists who visit and what are their views of the adventure they have a chance to experience every day. Read books on popular locations and adventures and how to execute the perfect plan or something related.
Create and share your own views with others
Sharing what you think of the plan or the experience after you have done it is the best participation. When discussing your memories or conveying your excitement for something, you might pass on the same to the ones who are listening. This can be possible only if you are visiting somewhere new and none of your partners have experienced it. When one person is active, it has the potential to make the whole group equally curious.
Imagine how would it feel if the attitude of everyone traveling with you has the same curiosity and excitement. Prior planning and its balance with spontaneity is the key for any adventure to be genuine and enjoyable.
