There are protocols and rules to follow when planning any adventure, but I have no idea what thy are so I’m kinda making it up as I go along.
The steps seem to be:
- Write down (decide) what the adventure is going to be.
- Research the place – visits, other people’s adventures and books are great for this
- Workout how to get to the location and the start of the adventure
- Workout how to get back
- Plan the route
- Gather and test the equipment
- Sort out food and water
- Go adventure
So here’s step one..
I’m planning on running (in my usually shonkily shod fashion) either Coast to Coast in Iceland, the circumference of Iceland or a similar thing to the UK’s LeJog (furthest south easterly point to the furthest north westerly point in the case of Iceland).
Now I need to get my self a guide book on the trails and a while load of maps. Let the fun begin 🙂
