Open Thread: Advice for Solo Adventures

This month’s theme is solo adventuring and we’d love to turn this into more of a discussion than a Q&A. So:

1) If you’ve been on solo adventures, tell us what you do and leave some advice for people who want to go but haven’t yet, for whatever reason.

2) If you haven’t been on solo adventures, ask any related questions you’d like and we’ll see if the hive mind can answer you.
