Wave-battered headlands ripped past us, shrouded in fog, as the tiny plane banked and turned, weaving along the ramparts of the rugged coast. Abruptly, the pilot steered into a bay where the receding tide had laid bare a broad patch of sand. Down we floated and stepped out to find ourselves in a valley of riotous green. There were no houses, no roads. Only the tallest peaks even had names. At that moment I knew that I had been transported, not only to another place in the world, but to another way of living in it.

My first trip to Alaska , a dozen years ago, cemented a long-gestating passion for adventure travel . And in the years since, that passion has spread around the globe. Never have there been so many people who want to see and experience the farthest corners of the world, and never have there been so many adventure-tour companies, of such high caliber, offering such a wide range of destinations and activities. We're living in a golden age of adventure.

Adventure isn't just about escaping into the wild, of course. It's about engaging and committing yourself no matter what you're doing. "People today have the mind-set of wanting to master things," says Keith Walden of Virtuoso, a network of luxury travel agencies. "They want to go and dive in and learn and be hands-on."

For a truly profound experience, adventure travelers should plan on spending at least a week. One needn't endure rough living conditions; some of the wildest landscapes on earth can be enjoyed in luxury tented camps or sumptuous lodges like those operated by Explora, in remote corners of South America. One of the company's guided excursions heads across the Bolivian altiplano, one of the world's most rugged environments.

Travelers pursuing personal transformation are increasingly looking for trips that include immersion in a foreign culture or a chance to volunteer on behalf of a worthy cause. Journey Mexico, for instance, focuses on Mexico's cultural and natural heritage and brings guests on trips that involve weighing, tagging, and releasing endangered sea turtles on the coastline of Baja California.

Then again, if it's a profoundly life-changing experience you're after, there's nothing like a really long journey in a truly remote region. Wilderness Travel conducts 29-day treks on the Tibetan Plateau, which kick off in Kathmandu and ascend to a base camp within 8,000 feet of Everest's summit. Along the way, guests explore the ancient monasteries of the Lhasa valley.

Maybe your children are grown and you are bored with your empty nest. Perhaps, you’ve got wanderlust or simply want to visit friends and family scattered across the country. Whatever your reasons, traveling and living in an RV might just provide you with the flexibility to live adventurously. However, before you just hit the road, there are some decisions you must make. You must consider your present home, your income or need for employment, your alternate transportation, and what the future may hold for you living life on the road.

If you own a home, you can keep it or sell it. You could rent out your home temporarily while you try life in an RV. Do choose a professional service; dealing with tenant issues yourself can ruin your adventure. Remember you need a home base, somewhere permanent to receive mail and file state or federal taxes.

If you have grown children, you can use a child’s permanent address. You can also rent a postal box and have mail forwarded, as you need. Do consider handling your banking and bill paying online to eliminate missed payments.

Even if you are receiving social security, you may need to work. You need to cover expenses such as RV maintenance, camp sites, food, medical and entertainment. From traveling to craft fairs to trading work for a camping space or income, you have options. One excellent source of employment while traveling is workamper.com. Check it out to see what is available.

When your home is on wheels, you may not feel the need for alternate transportation. However, you should strongly consider towing your car or storing one in a central location. There are three reasons for maintaining a second vehicle.

The first is that your RV is not the most fuel-efficient vehicle. If you want to take a scenic drive leave, your RV parked and save money on fuel.
