6 tips so you can afford your next adventure

Being an adventure freak is not an alien concept. There are quite a few people who actually are low on money but still dream of satisfying the adventure freak in them. However, these people are usually not amongst those who lose heart easily and thus they find a way out. We asked a few such adventure buffs and this is there top 6 tips which you can also use to afford your next adventure.

1. Carpool and tent sharing

Obviously when out camping a considerable amount of your money is spent on traveling and finding accommodations. You may be surprised to know that you can share anything from tents, rides, floors to couches provided you get the right people to associate with. To be fair you can post a requirement for people who are also planning a trip to the same area and just match things around.

2. Local exploring

If money is a big constraint then you need not go too far with your adventure plans. We are sure there may be camping spots in your site as well and you can attempt to plan a trip there. This not only saves you money but also makes you quite close and aware of your place of residence.

3. Buy the right gear

It is not always true that expensive items are high on quality. If you have to save money you can buy cost-effective gear which would last you for a long time and thus appear affordable. You can look for sales and deals when you are able to get such stuff for cheap and yet manage to fulfill your requirement.

4. Food bin

You might have some leftover stuff which you can use to make up for your food needs. Start by first dumping all such items in a box to be used later. You can include packets of chips, soup cans and a bag of rice which is half empty. When you plan to leave next you would have quite a treasure to cherish.

5. DISPOSE OF OLD STUFF

Most people have a plethora of stuff that they might not be using at the moment. For example, you can think about selling your old vehicle as there might be new couples or bachelors looking for something in their budget. You can also sell off old books, furniture, etc. and use that money to plan your next adventure trip.

6. Plan, plan, and plan

If you have already planned everything in advance then you tend to save a lot of money. Also, keep in mind unexpected costs which may bother you in the future. This could include food or camping site costs, beach parking, etc. Being aware of the weather is also one aspect you should never ignore.

Conclusion

When you plan a budget trip the following aspects if taken care of would make your adventure trip really successful. There is no harm in saving money while travelling as many people do that and still enjoy their occasional streaks of adventure traveling.

Two tenths of a second. That’s all that separated Kate Weatherly and Marine Cabirou this past Sunday in the Women’s World Cup race in Leogang. Their results are indicative of a loose and dusty course that was racing fast, which kept things neck and neck between many of the top female racers. Despite Cabirou’s best effort to salvage her run after crashing on the last corner, Weatherly ultimately snagged 3rd by mere pedal strokes. At the award ceremony she stood on a UCI downhill World
