Adventure Recommendations

After years of being involved in adventure on various levels and in all sorts of places, I’ve come to really appreciate the value of having good equipment and having solid information. I’ve found that there’s plenty to worry about in the midst of true adventure, without adding to it by relying on things that don’t work or poor information. These are some of my personal recommendations– they come either from my personal experience or from other adventurers, whose opinions I trust.

Disclaimer: I certainly make no guarantees about anything mentioned or linked here, but if I had it to do all over again–along with talking with other adventurers, this is one of the places I would go to for information…….     And remember– this is a work in progress, it’s dynamic, so check back often……..

How to Get Linked    As mentioned, the links below lead or point to information about things or specific travel details that I’ve come to count on or believe in either from my own direct experiences or those of good adventure friends. Certainly, there is a financial component to this in some cases, but that is related to the need to make this a financially viable forum for information and not for the promotion of things I don’t personally believe in.

If you know of something that should be included here– let me know and we can discuss the possibilities.
