Some planning is good and better then no planning. Even I prefer sorting out the rough details before stepping out of the house. I agree that everything cannot get planned prior hand but still sketching a rough outline is always good.

I've known of people that forgot to put gasoline in their car tank and got stuck in the middle of the Nevada desert on their way to Las Vegas. They had to wait 2 hours for someone to pick them up. Now imagine the heat they had to withstand with the little supplies they took.


This is so shocking and weird. I mean checking the gasoline in car is the prime need for travel . But I don't blame anyone. Sometimes the mental state is such that we all act in this manner and forget even the basic requirements. Such situations are the reason why I don't like unplanned trips. Getting stuck up in a condition like this is something I cannot tolerate.

The thing is they were already on the road so they just decided to keep going and I guess from all the excitement of being with each other, they forgot to check the gasoline level. When in a group, people tend to ignore common sense to impress their friends. Now, as many can tell, that isn't a good idea.

I always need to plan out my trips as I like to know where I am going and when. I wouldn't want to go all of a sudden and forget something and which will cause me too much stress that will prevent me from having fun. I prefer everything planned and ready to go to make sure everyone has what they need and that everypne will be liking where we are heading off to.

It has been my past experience that the unplanned trips are usually some of the best ones because of that spontaneity factor. It's just so much more fun to experience something on the spur of the moment than something that you have planned every detail of. Of course some people prefer the opposite and I think it basically just comes down to a matter of personal preference, really. I like the excitement of not knowing what comes next and yet someone else might find that not having a properly planned trip induces anxiety in them.

To be unaware of what will be the next move is a great excitement in itself. But with all the family responsibilities and limited funds now I always prefer to preplan things and then make a move.

Everyone likes adventure but when you have a family to take care things change upside down.

I know what you mean. That's how life tends to unfold for most people. As soon as they have a family to think of and to take care of, they start to change the way that they do things. No more spontaneity and no more living on the edge because now they have a lot of responsibility in the form of their family and their career. I guess it's best to enjoy these things while you're young so that you don't miss them when their gone.

I won't go on a trip suddenly without making adequate plans for it if I'm in control. I am not sure to leave for such a trip without forgetting some stuffs I 'd need behind. Another thing my schedule are always tight as in I'm busy every day, if I should embark on a trip suddenly my other assignments would suffer.

I agree that we have to plan for events or even trips before so that we may not encounter problems later. It ensures that everything flows smoothly to the satisfaction of the planner. However, sometimes I prefer unplanned trips. They turn out to be more fun. I remember a day we were coming out of school with a couple of friends and decided to visit a nearby forest. It was all fun. One does not know what to expect contrary to a planned visit/travel. This normally applies to short distance trips where in case of anything you will be able to return home. Long distance trips require adequate planning and I would not advise anyone pulling a random one.

I am not a person with much demands so I can adjust anywhere with whatever is available. I have had several of such trips in the wildest of places and in unknown terrains too. So, yes unplanned trips are so happening.

Interesting, I like your flexibility when it comes to embarking on unplanned travel. The fact I wasn't having problem travelling even without adequate planning before but since I started having tight schedule at work it's become tough for me to travel without prior plan.

While I do recognize that more often than not these are probably the most fun, I still struggle with them just because of my overall personality. I am just one of those people who likes to have things planned, although ideally I can get over it and enjoy myself.
