The Adventure Possible approach to modern life builds adventure into life’s trajectory, borrowing five years from retirement to give professionals the structure, tactics, and opportunity to make adventure possible over the course of your life.
In summary, the life looks like this:
During the working years, we make money and save money to fund the next adventure, covering gear, travel expenses, and bills back home while away from work for a year or so on an adventure.
However, for longer adventure travel trips lasting many years, adventurers (especially adventure families) may exhaust the money squirreled away in a travel nut and need to augment savings with income that either slows down or covers the adventure travel burn rate. (What is a burn rate?)
We’ve managed to do a pretty good job creating income streams that enable us to live our long-term adventure travel dreams, deriving income from a combination of consulting, book sales, product sales, investments, and real estate.
In this section, we share how other adventurers can develop income streams that let them embark on their adventure, travel farther, and stay out longer.
