Let's face it—making friends can be hard. Whether you have just moved to a new location, are looking to expand your friend group, or find yourself surrounded by people who aren't all that interested in the outdoors, you may be looking for new adventure buddies in your life. After all, don't we all need that person in our life who will drag us out of our tent to see a beautiful sunrise, and share a drink around the campfire at night?
Especially as you move further away from group living situations—like college, AmeriCorps, or simply having roommates—finding people with common interests can feel like a struggle. So how do you go about finding folks that are adventurous or adventure-curious like yourself?
