Don't get me wrong, spontaneity is great, but unless you have endless time and a bottomless pit of money -- planning is your friend. Pro tip: Check out adventures in your area with the app Roots Rated!

2. Not dressing for success

And by success I mean for every season out there. Bring all the things for all the seasons + a backpack to shove your items into!! Pro tip: Rock Adventure-Inspired BANGS Shoes. They're sick shoes + 20% of their net profits help people starts businesses.

3. Leaving behind all picture taking devices

Trying to be *nature* and leave technology behind? Muscles can't handle the extra weight?? WRONG. Pro tip: Bring your phone and put it on airplane mode! You can take pictures and get the disconnect you're looking for.

4. Not bringing enough snacks

If you hear yourself saying "oh wow this outta be enough", tell that voice they're an amateur and have zero life skills. Pro tip: Pack your bag to the brim with This Bar Saves Lives! They're delicioussssss and for every bar sold, they give life-saving food to a child in need.

6. Inviting too many friends

I know, I know. I just said....BUT! Other studies have shown that walking alone in nature can help clear your mind and center yourself! Pro tip: Bring a journal + pen to jot down inspiration when it strikes!! Check out this swanky Tennyson Journal by Bradley Mountain.

7. Not telling anyone where you're going

Always always ALWAYS tell someone where you're going, especially if you're adventuring alone. Pro tip: If you’re sending a text, send it BEFORE you hit the road! You never know if your adventures will lead you into spotty service.
