ADVENTURE TRAVEL
What is Adventure Travel?

So what do you want?
A cheap thrill.
To be James Bond 007.

No Risk - No Rush
The adrenaline pump.
The testosterone working overtime.
To be the big dog in an Alpha World.
To be alive, to feel, to think.
To be clear of thought and action.

WHAT IS ADVENTURE TRAVEL?

Risk.
It must be possible to be hurt.
Maybe killed.
Not everyone will finish or survive.

DICTIONARY DEFINITION
Adventure
a : an undertaking usually involving danger and unknown risks.
b : the encountering of risks the spirit of adventure.

I on occasion read a magazine article on
adventure tours or places of high adventure.
A pop psychology induced idea with
delusions of adequacy.

What about planning?
Can you plan an adventure?
Maybe, but the itinerary is shot to hell.
I  have no idea how you would have an adventure
that has an itinerary. A start time and a stop
time. It sounds like a tour, smells like a tour,
and taste like a tour. That is a tour.
Not an adventure.

RISK AND UNKNOWN

"To go where no man has gone before."
Star Trek

Columbus, Magellan, Darwin., Marco Polo.
These boys were not sure what was ahead.
That is an adventure.
And neither does Captain Kirk.
That is the attraction. It is risky.

ADVENTURE - EXPLORER - EXTREME

These words blend together, but are not
the same. You could be an extreme traveler
and not have much risk or danger.

Hard to not connect Adventure and Explorers.
To me an explorer is going to a place where
no one has collected information.
There is maybe no map.

An Adventure can be a repeat trip of an
and exploration. It is still risky, but you know
it is possible.

So an Adventure is a proposition that involves
personal "risk" of being harmed, situations that
cannot be predicted. The "unknown." And the
planning cannot be controlled by "time." Plus
the trip is not "predictable," the level of adventure
is maybe out of control.
Loss of "control" and acceptance of this.

EXAMPLES:

- Climbing Mount Everest.
- Scuba diving below 100 feet.
- Entering villages of subsistence living where
less than 5 people come per month.
Especially alone.
- Soldiers going to battle.

I suppose there are levels of Adventure.
But this just sounds like a magazine
advertisements for tours in my opinion.
I think they are talking about the level of how
physically fit or healthy you need to be.
More or less "Endurance Travel."

Enter the world of adventure.
An overwhelming of the senses.

The greatest adventures are encounters
with the most dangerous of all animals.
The two legged Human.

Just another day in Paradise!
PLAN YOUR ESCAPE...
Be a Hobo, and leave your mark.
