If you plan to ask an adventurous outdoorsy girl to marry you, you better have a unique proposal in mind. Learn how to arrange an outdoor scavenger hunt that leads her right into your waiting arms. Tweak these steps to reflect your gal’s daring personality. You know her best and this is the time to cater to her romantic side.
Step One: Tell her you have a surprise date for her planned, and she needs to be home a certain day. Do not skip this step, as she may surprise you, not be be home and ruin all of your plans.
Step Two: Have a box delivered to her door that contains a compass and a map of her favorite hiking trail with the path she is supposed to take clearly marked. For extra romance, have it contain a survival pack backpack of her favorite trail mix, beverage and other outdoor hiking necessities.
Step Three: Mark the trail ahead of time with small tokens of your affection. For example, tie a bright bow around a tree with a box of chocolates attached at the end. Mark X’s on the map for hidden treasure, and do not forget to include a small shovel, scissors and other tools she needs to get to her presents in her backpack.
Step Four: Leave camping items along the way, such as small tent poles, matches and a sleeping bag, along with the presents. She will automatically think her big gift is a night of camping and a marriage proposal will not as easily cross her mind.
Step Five: Plan the final step of your adventurous marriage proposal at your favorite camping site. Try to arrange the time for her final arrival to be around sunset, and be waiting on bended knee as she steps into the clearing.
Make sure the backpack you send to her is big enough to carry all of the gifts she finds on the trail during her hike.
Talk to any park rangers about your ideas ahead of time, so you will not get into trouble for doing it, and make sure to book your camping spot in advance to ensure privacy.
Tailor the ending of your plan for an adventurous outdoor marriage proposal to fit your relationship, such as having the ring strung in front of the tent opening or in a box sitting on a long in the center of the unlit fire.
