Handle fluke weather like a pro
- May 2, 2014
What happens when nature isn't on your side? Although weather forecasts are becoming more reliable as technology improves, sometimes there's just no way to predict what Mother Nature has in store. Whether the skies split open with a torrent of rain or lightning flashes dangerously close to your campsite, it's essential that you're prepared for whatever comes your way in terms of camping readiness.
Even if you're well-versed in the art of camping, here are a few important safety tips that could help you in a pinch:
Keep track of where you are
It doesn't matter if you're totally familiar with or brand new to an area, knowing where you are, geographically speaking, is essential. Where are the nearest roads? How far have you gone from camp? Are there any landmarks that might make it easier for you to backtrack? When a fluke rainstorm occurs or if you get caught in some other natural disaster, such as a landslide or an earthquake, it's also important for you to have a backup plan in mind for returning to your campsite. A watch compass, for instance, should do the trick.
Have gear on hand
Does the forecast say sunny skies and warm weather? Bring an extra jacket anyway. You never know what might happen, and when you're in a situation where you're spending a majority of your time outdoors, it's important for you to have all of the right gear with you. Discovery News also suggested bringing along plenty of extra food and water, even if you're planning to do a lot of your own hunting and gathering. Area wildlife tends to react strongly to snap changes in the weather, and if that happens, your meals could be long gone before you notice.
