Nicole's Instagram: @pang_bang

If you need a sign to leave your 9 to 5 job to follow your dream of outdoor living, Nicole will give you the one.

Nicole shares various tips on outdoor living, traveling, and hiking. For instance, Nicole believes safety should be one of the biggest concerns when you're traveling and it's true! She recommends never sharing your location on social media (only do it when you have left the place), never wearing headphones on the trail so you are mindful of your surroundings, and having a device that you can use to call for help no matter where you are, covering windows if you are in RV or tent, etc.

These tips are incredibly life-saving, especially if you are a girl who's traveling alone. You can also check out all the gears she carries around while she's hiking and doing outdoor living (i.e. mosquito repellent, solar lantern, camping blanket, etc.). The link to all these is shared on her Instagram profile.

Mike's Instagram: taoutdoorofficial

Mike has around 200K followers on Instagram, but he boasts 2 million followers on YouTube. An outdoorsman and adventure filmmaker, he has been living the outdoor life ever since he started walking.

His website, the link shared on his Instagram profile, consists of all items you would need for outdoor living. There is food back, shaped like a pouch for keeping your food and beer cool in the warm weather. A foldable canvas seat that can easily fit into your backpack. Patches, a woodsman wallet, a drinking cup called kuksa, and everything that you need to pack up in your bag when you plan a night out with nature, it's all listed.

Although Mike is from the UK, he still has a unique and better perspective than many other camping influencers. Check out his YouTube channel to learn about hunting, fishing, and camping.
