I may or may not have mentioned it a few times, but I have adventuring on my mind this summer. It’s been a tough few months, in more ways than one, for us and the thought of kicking back outside in the sunshine without a care in the world is very very appealing.
Of course, you don’t need much, or rather, you don’t need anything, for adventuring outdoors, save for yourself and some wide-eyed enthusiasm, and, you know, a fully charged phone just in case, but there are some things that might be nice to have or might just be downright useful to have:
A handy tote bag from Millican, made from recycled polyester, that converts to a rucksack at the tug of a strap for however the day’s adventuring pans out.
A portable wood powered rocket stove for making cups of tea, or scran, out in the wild. Can’t be without your tea, not even in the woods. I have to confess, I am lusting after one of these bad boys so badly.
Speaking of tea, a handy flask to store said tea in. Let it be said, I take my tea very seriously, especially so when partaking in outdoor adventures. Or, if you don’t like tea (who even are you?!), then you could just fill it with ice cold water (also refreshing when outdoor adventuring).
Sunscreen*, because sunburn isn’t cool. And because I burn at even a hint of a ray of sun cracking through the clouds.
Sandals, vegan ones at that, because my pair of Birkenstocks are 12 years old and still going strong. I dare you to find a more durable pair of sandals. Bonus points for being made of super sustainable cork.
