To many camping enthusiasts, there’s not much that can ruin a camping trip the way rain can — if it’s totally unexpected. Anytime you’re headed to the outdoors you should have a general idea of what the weather is forecast to be like, but we know summer cloudbursts can happen suddenly, and really, is there any weatherman who can really predict it accurately?
Camping in the rain is a bit removed from luxury, that’s for sure, but it’s not impossible to stay dry and cozy, even if all you have is a simple tarp shelter. The video below demonstrates how easily a basic shelter can protect you and all your gear from the rain on the fly, without having to dig even a single trench. Learning techniques like quick shelter-building will invariably come in handy whether you’re in the wilderness for adventure or survival.
