I read this great article from Outside magazine while I was waiting in the doctor’s office yesterday.

The Outside Explorer’s Guide to the Brave New World of Trip Planning…Or Just Go

Here are a few excerpts:

If you wait until you have everything ready, every detail dialed, every piece of worst-case-scenario gear squared away, you’ll never leave. Instead, learn to master the elusive art that makes adventure possible: the ill-planned, underfinanced departure.

First of all, unprepare.

Unplan. Adventure is almost entirely contiguous with misadventure, and the best travel memories come from these accidental moments.

Finally, unpack. The more you travel, the less you need. Start shedding pounds now.

That’s it. You’re as ready as you ever will be.
