I have recently set up an adventure Go Box to help me be more prepared on our spontaneous micro-adventures. The box I used is from Ikea but you could also do this using a bag you already have at home.
Basically the idea of a Go Box is having all of your stuff in one place so that you are ready to go at a moment’s notice or whenever the need to escape arises. I decided that my Go Box was going to have everything in it that I needed to go on a day trip adventure, either on my own or with the kids, at the drop of a hat. Basically all I need is this box and the outdoors. You could also have separate boxes ready to go wild swimming or paddling, cycling or camping.
List of stuff currently in my Go Box, in no particular order….
- First aid kit
- BruKit from Alpkit – for making hot drinks or food
- Pacmat (And if you want 15% off, enter Revitalize15 at checkout).
- Drybag – This one from Alpkit has a strap so I use it as a day bag to carry around the essentials from the Go Box when we are out on the adventure!
- Microfibre towel
- Lip balm
- alcohol sanitiser gel
- Swiss army knife
- Pasta sauce
- Sun cream
- Head torch
- Spare socks
- Kids aqua shoes and waterproof trousers
- Solar-powered charger
The box now lives in the boot of my car and it means everything is in one place so I don’t need to spend time faffing about getting everything together. I feel much more organised and it will hopefully mean I get to go on some epic spontaneous adventures with my friends and family!

What would be in your Go Box? Am I missing anything?
