For some of us, it is the winter season in the United States. If you are not a skier, this may be considered the “off season”.
This is a good time to start dreaming and plan your next adventure.
Now is the time to write stuff down! Everything you can think of that you would like to do. Take an art class? Ride a Ferris Wheel? White water rafting? Visit a new park or city? Bike tour? Run a race? Here’s a cool list or try this list for some ideas.
Is this the year of big adventures? Will you travel to another country..or another state? Make a list of what NEW things you could encounter in a different town or city to try.
Is this not the time for a big long epic wildlife safari? Then it’s micro adventure time. But there still needs to be a bit of planning for these. Life does get in the way, let’s make sure adventure time happens too.
My 2018 List
My 2018 is going to be split between hiking and biking. I want to log more miles on the Buckeye Trail, and I want to take several biking tours.
Our big vacation this year will be visit the Caribbean island of Grenada, where lots of adventure will occur.
I also have to look at my work schedule weekends. For example, the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure 2018 occurs over my work weekend-scratch that possibility.
Ohio to Erie Trail
I meant to ride the Ohio to Erie Trail this past fall. I let life get in the way. I am not going to let this happen again! I’m going to ride from Cincinnati to Cleveland, or vice versa. This will happen in the first six months of 2018!
Other bike tour possibilities: Erie Canalway Trail; Katy Trail 237 miles. Shorter, but farther away.
Other Outside the Comfort Zone Adventures
Polar Bear Plunge? Karaoke? Karaoke after a polar bear plunge?
Keep your List Handy
Keep your 2018 Adventure List out in the open where you can see it. Then it won’t be suddenly August and you haven’t clicked off any fun or maybe “not so fun” adventures off the list!
