If you are planning to set off on a trip to survive outdoors, make sure you are physically and mentally fit and prepared for such a bold and risky adventure.
We suggest that you take the time to collect some notes and plan your trip in advance. All this will be an incredible experience and great fun, but it can be very dangerous and potentially life-threatening if you don’t prepare for it. There is a big difference between hiking and camping, and then going on a real trip for survival. A journey to survival means that you take with you only those accentuated objects from which you can survive. A survival tour is not for beginners or campers, but for active outdoor enthusiasts, people who hike, camp, hunt or hunt in the desert, or who had some military experience in the desert. One thing is certain: never try to do something like this on your own, always have a partner or two to go with you.
Depending on which journey you choose, you have to think about it. Do you have the right outdoor equipment to survive? Do you travel for a week, a month or a few months? Do you go to the mountains or desert? Are you going on a desert trip or just in the depths of the forest?
There are many different types or ways to survive. For example, you can take a trip through the swamps of Louisiana, or a desert trip through the hills of Yellowstone Park in Wyoming. No matter where you go, it requires a lot of planning and preparation. According to all laws, it would be wise to plan many months in advance.
What kind of outdoor equipment and how much are you going to take with you? What path do you intend to follow? At what time of year do you want to go? Will it be very cold or unbearably hot? Will it be hot during the day and cold at night? Will there be rivers that will cross or canyons to scale? Will you be able to contact the outside world if a crisis situation occurs? I can go further and further about things that can go wrong, and that’s why it requires a lot of planning.
If you are an experienced outdoor enthusiast and have a lot of knowledge about hiking and camping tourism, but you have never been or never made a real trip to survive, I believe that you would like to go on your first trip to the Appalachian Route in the eastern United States.
The Appalachian Trail is a marked hiking and camping trail. It is about 2,200 miles long and runs from Georgia to Maine. It is the longest continuous marked trail in the United States. The Appalachians offer some of the most beautiful places in the American landscape. There are several quite large rivers that you will have to cross. These rivers also provide powerful fishing opportunities. Although this is a marked trail for tourists and campers, it still offers an incredible challenge to overcome and would be a great achievement for anyone who has never made a real life journey to survive.
To just get off and walk the entire route from south to north or vice versa, it will take you about 6 to 7 months if you want to make the whole journey at the same time. There are many small towns that you can descend from the route if you need to stock up on supplies, but it is like going on a long hike instead of a real expedition to life.
