If you get a thrill from being out in nature and using your survival skills to live off the land, why not participate in an Australian Walkabout? These have gained popularity since one of the main characters form the television show Lost attempted to go on one. The original thought for an Australian Walkabout was for you and your fellow adventurers to get out into the Australian Outback on a guided tour. When you get out on a walkabout, you are only living off the land. You hunt for your own food, build your own shelter from what is available and take on any “elements” that might come your way (weather, animals, etc). It would be like extreme camping and can bring great satisfaction. Dude Ranches can be great adventure travels for the whole family. The Ponderosa Ranch in Nebraska gives you an opportunity for laborious work and an exciting ranch vacation. You can stay in the ranch’s guest cabins. During the day you act as a real working ranch hand. Guests get atop a horse and help round up cattle and drive them from one bit of ranch acreage to another. In the evening time there are campfire stories. When you have a bit of free time, you can select from several different activities, including hunting, fishing, hiking and riding horseback. This is a wonderful vacation for families because people of all ages and skill levels can partake on the adventure.
