With nicer weather finally out in front of us, people with an affinity for adventure will be looking for their next adrenaline fix. One way to capitalize on the warmer months ahead is to head outdoors and challenge yourself to try something new. Rock climbing, mountain biking, scuba diving, hang gliding, backpacking, white water rafting and trail running are all popular and unique ways to work up a sweat for any thrill seeker! Here are some tips to consider to get you ready for your next off-the-grid adventure:
  • Do your homework. Your first venture into scuba diving won’t be 100 feet down in the ocean surrounded by sharks, it will most likely be in your local pool. This goes for any adventurous activity, and it’s important to take the time to do things right. Be sure to find a knowledgeable and experienced instructor or guide who will be able to get you started and take you through all the steps safely. You’ll also want to check the weather so you’re aware of any rough conditions and create a detailed trip plan to leave with friends and family before you head out.
  • Know your limits. One of the key pieces of advice when undertaking a new sport is knowing your own strength and when to push yourself to the edge or when you should back off. You may not be a natural to the sport, no matter your physical condition or how much homework you’ve done. Start small and build your way up, and you’ll be an expert in no time! And, always make sure to hydrate and bring snacks to keep your energy up.
  • Invest in the right gear and supplies. If you’re a novice, it may be smart to rent gear for your first experience. Once you’ve given it a go and you’re more serious about it, you should compare different offerings by looking into gear reviews or visiting an outdoor retailer to learn more about what you’ll need to purchase before it’s time to head out. For example, your regular running shoes won’t suffice for trail runs because the terrain is completely different. offers a variety of gear and clothing reviews for different sports and activities. Your experience will heavily weigh on the gear you choose to invest in, so make sure you’re buying proper equipment and supplies to make it count.
  • Keep your gear smelling fresh longer. Hardcore adventure sports can create some extreme odors. From funky hiking boots to horrible-smelling helmets and musty tents, this specialized gear can really hold onto sweaty, stinky odors. Once you’re back on solid ground, apply FunkAway Aerospray to your shoes and gear. You can also keep a jar of Odor Eliminating Beads in your gear closet to keep your home and your belongings smelling fresh and ready for the next time you set out for your next adventure.
