8 Tips for Traveling Across Country (With an Adventure Twist)

Read Time:3 Minute, 30 Second

After months of planning, it’s finally time to leave the comfort of your home and embark on an adventure across country. Whether you’re traveling by car or train, there are some tips you should keep in mind before you start your journey. Here are eight tips for traveling across country with an adventure twist that can help ensure your trip goes smoothly from beginning to end.

1: Before you go

Before you go, try to make sure you have a full tank of gas, your car is up to date on maintenance, and you have enough money in your account to cover any expenses like fees from toll roads or parking. You should also check if there’s anything you need to bring along that may not be available where you’re going. For example, did you remember water purification tablets if you’re going somewhere that doesn’t have clean water?

2: What to pack

If you’re going to be camping, you’ll need a tent, sleeping bag and air mattress. Don’t forget your toothbrush and deodorant. If you are traveling by car, pack at least one gallon of water per person in case of emergencies. Be sure to bring snacks and bottled water as well. When packing for your trip, it is important to remember that you may have limited access to laundry facilities or showers while away from home. It is recommended that campers bring enough clothing with them to last two weeks before washing their clothes again. Campers should also consider bringing warm layers of clothing if they plan on hiking or backpacking into their campsite each day.

3: When you arrive

It’s not your adventure unless you arrive with a few good tips. Here are eight we recommend: 1. Make friends early on. The sooner you can get to know people, make friends and find someone who is willing to share their food with you—if they’re nice, maybe they’ll let you join them at lunch as well!—the better off you’ll be when it comes time to call it quits and head home. 2.

4: Research your route

Whether you’re traveling across state or country, it’s important to make sure you research your route. Not only will researching your route give you a better idea of how long your trip will take, but it can also make traveling more enjoyable. If you don’t know your route well, it can be incredibly stressful and make each stop seem like a new adventure rather than part of a trip that has already begun.

5: Avoid injury, illness, and fatigue

That’s what adventure trips are about: experience, character building, and overcoming obstacles. In order to truly enjoy your experience, it’s important to make sure you avoid injury, illness, and fatigue. These tips will help you get ready. While preparing for your trip can be tricky, the preparation is a critical part of ensuring a successful expedition.

6: Weather considerations

Even if you aren’t traveling abroad, there are plenty of weather considerations to be made.

7: Learn more about flora, fauna, and geology

Learning more about flora, fauna, and geology is one of my favorite ways to take my life off-grid. Whether it’s learning about how a plant or animal lives, or getting some insight into geology and earth sciences, seeing our world through new eyes helps me remind myself why I want to be in the wilderness in the first place. This can mean taking a class or doing your own research, but either way—it’s a very rewarding way to learn more about our natural world!

8. Pack it in, pack it out

The golden rule of adventure travel is simple: Pack it in, pack it out. This means anything you bring into nature must be carried back out with you—and not just because your mom told you to, but because it’s a respect thing. If your group leaves behind water bottles, trash, or food scraps, it’s disrespectful to everyone else who will visit that spot next—and will damage wildlife in the process.
