Prepare and check everything
Let it air out
Keep it breezy
Open your vents, it may seem like the opposite of what you should be doing on a rainy day but you need to keep the fresh air circulating.
Wrap it up
Take plastic bags of all shapes and sizes to protect items from getting wet and to store wet shoes and clothes.
Stay dry when setting up
If you’re pitching a tent in the rain, you’ll be pretty miserable if the inside and your belongings get wet in the process.
Dry quarantine your tent
Don’t allow anything wet to make it into your living areas.
Slide off shoes
This prevents wet footprints in your living area.
Pack your waterproofs
A waterproof jacket and trousers are great when the weathers miserable.
Pack plenty of spare socks
Having cold, wet feet is the worst. Pack lots of extra pairs and make sure you keep a dry pair that you only wear inside the tent.
Choose where you pitch your tent carefully
You want to stay away from large bodies of water, muddy puddles, ditches etc.
Position your tent correctly
Position the door of your tent to face the opposite direction to the wind. When you unzip your door, you’ll get less windswept rain inside!
Make sure there’s plenty of tension on your tent so water doesn’t pool on your fly sheet.
