We all get to a point in our lives when getting annihilated on beer just isn’t fun anymore. The hangovers hurt more and you’re more likely to end up snoozing in a dark corner than doing shots at the bar with the rest of the boys. Of course, I’m not saying we don’t all like a beer or two when the time is right, but bachelor parties should be about everyone coming together to have fun, not spend the whole night half-naked or with your head down the toilet!
There’s a real difference between traveling and vacationing, as pretentious as that may sound. Both terms can be interpreted rather vaguely, I suppose, but whilst a vacation is usually intended for relaxation, traveling is more of an experience which keeps you on the move. Some travelers may see themselves more as sightseers, whilst others may view themselves more as adventurers. Whatever the case may be for you, it all means nothing if you don’t have the funds to feed your traveling addiction.
I know what it’s like. You wake up one morning and take a look in the mirror and see a middle-aged man staring back at you. You still feel like a teenager, and you just can’t understand why all your friends have settled down. In most instances, you’d love to have a girlfriend or partner and some kids. However, you feel like that’s never going to happen, and you sink into a mini depression. That will happen to most men if they reach their later years while still being single. The important thing to remember is that there’s no need to worry. Life has a funny way of sorting things out itself. Even so, the tips and advice on this page could help you to navigate your midlife crisis (you don’t HAVE to refer to it like that if it makes you feel better).
Every so often a man needs to go away for a weekend with his man-friends to do manly things. It is a bonding exercise. It is that release valve that we all need to open once in a while to let out that adolescent yearning to do stupid things. It is a way of hanging out with the boys like you used to back in school or college or your early days of semi-professionalism. But knowing what to do for a weekend away can be a challenge.
Wild camping is about as manly as it gets. The idea of being stuck in the middle of nowhere, living off the land to survive, the harsh but beautiful wilderness playing backdrop to our adventure. It is something every dude has to experience at least one in their life, but hopefully once a year. Camping isn’t about parking up at a site and finding your peg number. Camping is about waking up to birdsong, your breath freezing in front of your face, your water supplies running low and that grumble in your gut telling you it’s time to find more food.
