Escaping the responsibilities of everyday life isn’t easy. The Adventure Curated Trip Planner app brings fun to the planning process and is the perfect place to document your dream trips and get organised so they happen!
Trip Planner is an iOS, macOS, Android and Web app. One subscription works on every device and can be shared by family members, plus your data cloud syncs, ready for you to continue your planning wherever you are.
A lifetime of adventure starts with a head full of ideas. The first step in using the Adventure Curated Trip Planner app is to list your adventures in the Trips section.
For most, it’s a list of near and far trips. If you already have dates, you can include them. Otherwise, you can use tentative dates or leave them blank to start.
You can also mark trips as Bucket List. The idea is to set goals and focus on making your big trips a reality!
Trip Planner is designed to support all of your adventures. It helps you plan the basics like camping gear, meals and food effortlessly.
Often trips are different, and the Adventure Curated Trip Planner app helps you quickly select which gear you’ll need. You might want to pack mountain bikes for some adventures, while others could call for your surfboards and fishing rods.
Trip Planner also caters for different modes of travel, from hikes to trips with your caravan and even air travel.
The Adventure Curated Trip Planner app is a tool to assist you in getting organised and staying organised. The idea is not to only get ready for one trip but many.
You can categorise and organise your gear and easily see what needs repairing or purchasing between trips.
You can also make lists of your favourite meals and food to avoid reinventing the wheel and to utilise the easy packing list and super handy shopping list creation feature – we’ll explain that in Meals below.
The Adventure Curated Trip Planner app allows you to select the Mode of Travel for each trip.
This creates tailored packing locations and activates valuable data in the Weights tab of the trip.
For instance, if you choose 4×4 Towing Camper, you can pack gear and food in either your 4×4 or Camper and see the weight breakdown and if you exceed GVM/GVWR, GTM or GCM. It’s similar for 4×4, 4×4 Towing Caravan and 4×4 Towing Boat.
Another example is choosing Hiking. This will allow you to pack items into any traveller’s base weight or consumables and see their total pack weight.
If you choose Air +, this will allow you to see the carry-on and up to three checked bag weights for each traveller to ensure you avoid excess baggage charges.
The Adventure Curated Trip Planner app’s Gear Shed is really useful. It’s the place to load ALL of your outdoor gear and ensure it’s ready for future trips.
You can use the status feature to mark items as Ready (green), Repair (orange) or Buy (red). You can also add brand, category, subcategory, owner, storage location and weight.
The above options are fully customisable to suit your packing style and physical Gear Shed.
The intent is to be trip ready most of the time. In doing so, you will likely find getting away more effortless and be more likely to say yes to last-minute opportunities.
Within each of your Trips, there is a Gear section. You can quickly make a packing list for every trip by selecting the items you need from your Gear Shed.
To activate the weight features mentioned above for motorised trips, save your 4×4, camper trailer, caravan, boat and adventure motorbike specifications in the Garage.
What’s needed is real-world data. For instance, rather than the factory figures for your 4×4, you need the empty weight, including all your accessories like bull bars, roof racks, and the upgraded GVM/GVWR (if not standard).
If you are towing, you will also need the GCM of the tow vehicle, the empty weight of your camper trailer or caravan, and the GTM and the ball weight when loaded.
It gets a bit complicated, but don’t worry. Trip Planner helps explain the terminology, has a place to save every relevant weight (including travellers and fuel) and lays the weights out in an easy-to-understand manner.
In Meals, you can save your go-to breakfasts, lunches and dinners, along with a list of the ingredients you will need to cook them.
Where Trip Planner gets clever is within the Meals section of each trip, you can select how many of each meal you want. For instance, if you’re heading away for 20 days, you could select four as the quantity for your five favourites for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and your meal plan is done.
Even better, the Adventure Curated Trip Planner app then consolidates all of these ingredients into an easy shopping list ready for you to hit the supermarket.
The Food feature covers everything that isn’t covered in Meals and can also be used if you’d prefer to plan your meals in a pantry style rather than by set meals.
It is also the place to list your consumable items, for instance, gas canisters for your stove, coffee, tea, alcohol, soft drinks, and items like toilet paper.
With your usual items saved, you can select how many of each item you will need for each trip from this list in the Food Planning feature of each Trip.
Within each Trip, you will see a bought column that allows you to use your plan as a shopping list.
The Adventure Curated Trip Planner app is not a navigation or a campsite app. It has many genuinely unique features and is one of the best trip planner apps on the market.
The Itinerary feature allows you to document your trip day by day, including your travel, activities and where you plan to stay. You can also upload files daily, such as booking confirmations, permits and flights. These are then at your fingertips and ready when you need them.
Weight is critical to every mode of travel. For hikers, bikepackers and paddlers, heavier than necessary loads drain the joy from trips and can lead to exhaustion, injury or worse.
For remote 4×4 trips, overload often leads to broken componentry and extensive recovery and repair bills.
Excess weight significantly impacts stopping distances, steering, stability and your centre of gravity if you tow a camper trailer, caravan or boat.
The Weights section of Trip Planner is unique and allows you to see the immediate impact on your load as you add and subtract items from your packing lists.
It allows you to get the weight right in advance and avoid the last-minute hassle of repacking if you weigh just before heading off and are overloaded.
Trips can often seem unattainable from a financial and time perspective.
The Adventure Curated Trip Planner App’s Budget feature makes it easy to estimate and plan the cost of your future trips.
Once you know the cost of a trip, you have a goal, and you can make small daily choices to help save for the trip and even additional funds for unpaid leave, if necessary.
You may surprise yourself with what you can achieve quickly and on a finite budget once you have a focus.
