The world is a big place, and that makes it hard to make an argument for staying in one place for too long. So we’re not going to. Instead, we want to encourage you to do the opposite. Take impromptu trips whenever you can. And when time allows, take longer, bigger trips to the furthest corners of the Earth. Just make sure, when you do, to keep sturdy adventure-ready gear in your pockets, so you can make the most of it all. Whether jet-setting to the jungle or just taking a hike at your favorite State Park, that’s what this week’s pocket dump is about: exploration. The world is a beautiful place. Go see more of it.
