I’m looking to maybe start an adventure on foot around April this year and I’m trying to get some advice from others who have maybe done this already. I’ll be starting in Florida and I have no idea which direction I’ll be heading. I will have some money saved up for emergency purposes but I’d also like to find ways to make money along the way. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I’m also open to meeting some people who are willing to join me.
On foot? wow good luck with that, are you planning on staying inside hotels and such?
Would definitely recommend going bike touring. It would allow you to see far more than walking and relying on hitchhiking. You can carry your tent and supplies in panniers. Plus you can always lock up your bike and walk anyways
I suggest to go west at some point, not just north. As far as finding jobs along the way Im not sure of how to go about that. But if you are looking for cheap places to stay you can look into couch surfer (a website I heard of) so you can save money. You could also just carry a backpack with a tent to camp out places, that would be awesome.
This sounds awesome! I have never done it before, but my advice would be to take a camera and especially a video camera with you and upload videos to share with the world on YouTube. You will no doubt meet some awesome people, see some great things and learns some important life lessons. I for one would definitely want to see what you get up to :)
Wow. Wasn’t expecting many responses but this is great! I will be taking a backpack and boots along with a tent just in case. I won’t be staying in hotels but if I meet people along the way who can share a place to sleep it would be great. I’m also open to hitchhiking to cover more ground but on foot I’ll be able to see and experience more than I would sitting in a car for hundreds of miles. I’m not planning to get anywhere in particular. I just want to be on the road.
