Pointers to Set the Track for Extreme Adventures Planning:
1) Take a walk on photographic memory lane
See pictures of your extreme adventure experiences. Notice how you feel when looking at these images. Try to remember how you felt when engaging in these activities and identify your favorite or most cherishable ones.
2) Contact your buddies
Talk about your intense outdoors activities with family members, friends or acquaintances who were your partners at these events. It is always great to revive good memories.
3) Read about extreme recreations that catch your attention
Whether you like rappelling, canyoneering, flying by means of zip lines, caving, body rafting, rock climbing, paragliding or hang gliding, read articles about the experiences you prefer. You might get motivated and start searching for places in your country of residence where you can perform any of those pastimes.
4) Make a hobby out of adrenaline-rush outdoors activities (for the first time or again)
Do a list of diverse types of extreme adventures you would like to perform at natural areas, and reserve at least one day every two or three months to do one of these in your country of residence. Verify any required training and gear, ask for recommendations about places where you can enjoy these recreations or read about them in specialized magazines or websites or other information resources. If you end up loving a particular activity, you can turn it into a hobby.
Those aficionados who want to get back on track on adrenaline-rush pastimes, start saving the dates to follow the routine you used to.
5) Get the adequate gear
Check if you have or need to purchase clothing and other gear for the applicable adventure. Even if you have already carried out this activity, verify if a piece of your wardrobe and any equipment or effect needs to be replaced. If you will perform the recreation for the first time, read about recommended gear in specialized magazines or websites or other information resources, or request suggestions from experts or aficionados. Remember that tour providers who specialize in rappelling, canyoneering, body rafting or zip line attractions, usually provide the necessary equipment.
