Nine Signs You’re an Outdoor Adventurer

1. What’s a shower?
You’re not against showering, but when you’re out in the woods for days you forget what one feels like. The dirt on your arms, the smell from your clothes, and the knots of your hair all seem to blend into the woods. Plus, a perk, on returning to the front country, a shower has never felt so glorious (or needed).

2. You’re convinced you’re allergic to the indoors
That blast of artificial cold air and that glare from the fluorescent lights is making your eyes water and skin tingle. You can’t help but escape outside every chance you get.

3. Home sweet Tent
Whether you sleep in a tent, a car, or simply in a sleeping bag it starts to feel like home. You get excited each night to get home, snuggle down, watch the stars, and dream of the next day’s happenings.

4. You’re Instagram game is strong
Oh look another beautiful mountain view! Oh is that another epic adventure selfie taken with your GoPro? Whatever it is, you’re Instagram is always on point. #adventure #nature

5. Vacations are adventures and adventures are vacations
You don’t understand vacations meant to only lie around and relax. Where’s the fun in that? Your vacations always involve some aspect of adventure, and most of the times your adventure is the whole vacation.

6. There is more gear in your closet than clothes
Your roommates have threatened to make you pay double rent if you bring home one more bike. You have started to make wall art using your climbing gear. You can’t park the car in the garage because your skiing equipment is taking up too much space. Whatever it is, where there is a will, there is a way, and you always find a place for more gear.

7. You’re friend group is nationwide
There’s the guy who you met on a climb in Wyoming once and now stay in his cabin every summer. Or the ski lift girl who lets you crash at her place whenever there is fresh powder. You make friends on all your travels. Y’all understand each other and your love for the outdoors. It is a bond that is hard to break.

8. You forget back country habits don’t occur in civilization
What do you mean you don’t have to ask if the water is potable at the restaurant? Wearing the same clothes for three days isn’t the norm? When out in the backcountry for a few days you tend to blur the lines between what is normal and what is normal in everyday life. That rockin homemade hat you’ve been styling in all week may not kick it with the folks back home.

9. The outdoors and exploring all it has to offer will always be a part of you.
You know what they say, “You can take the person out of the woods, but you can’t take the woods out of the person.” Or something like that. In the end adventuring in the great outdoors will always be your love and you can’t imagine not doing it. So climb on, ride on, ski on, hike on, paddle on, adventure on!
