7 sim­ple steps to a mi­croad­ven­ture

Trail Running (UK) - - Challenge Yourself -

1 KEEP IT SIM­PLE Don’t over plan your mi­croad­ven­ture so much that it be­comes over­whelm­ing – you won’t do it. Just get out there and try it!

2 SHARE THE JOY (SOME­TIMES) Head off with will­ing friends, by all means, but wild camp­ing on your own can also be re­ally lib­er­at­ing, and an ex­tra-spe­cial ex­pe­ri­ence.

3 RE­SPECT THE PLANET Make sure you know the law around wild camp­ing. Aim to set up camp late and de­part early, and never leave a trace.

4 COM­FORT COM­FORT IS KEY In­vest in good-qual­ity kit – be­ing warm and com­fort­able will mak make a huge dif­fer­ence to your ov over­all en­joy­ment of the ex­pe­ri­enc ex­pe­ri­ence.

5 PACK LIGHT Don’t pack too much as it will feel bur­den­some. It’s only one night – you don’t need much. A beanie beanie, down jacket and head torch are my kit-list must-haves.

6 CAP­TURE THE MO­MENT Take plenty of pic­tures and share them on so­cial me­dia, to en­tice friends to o join you next time. Pho­tos will also lift your spir­its once you’re back at your desk.

7 RE­LAX AND EN­JOY IT Log out of ev­ery­day life, switch off your phone, and lis­ten to the sounds of na­ture.
