Don’t let rain dampen your trip: Tips for camping in bad weather
There's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong gear. Stay camping in all weather with our top tips
Best Tips for Camping in the Rain

The path of the committed outdoorsman is paved with poor weather, sodden trails, and tents being battered by the elements. Camping in the rain isn't top of many people's agenda, but in my opinion, some of my best nights sleeping outside in a tent have been camping in the rain. The sound of raindrops bouncing off your flysheet and the comfort of a warm, dry sleeping bag after a long day on the misty trail is a personal favorite.

Keeping yourself comfortable when you're camping in the rain requires practice. It's important that you have the right gear, but it's more important that you know how to use it so that your camping trip doesn't become a washout. Here are our top tips for camping in bad weather — if such a thing exists.

Set yourself up for success on your next long-distance hike
Like any endurance event, preparation is key to making your next long distance hike the best yet

Completing a long-distance trail is the ultimate aim for many hikers. While long-distance means different things to different people — for some, it's being out ten hours at a time, while for others, it's hitting the AP trail over the course of multiple months — there are some universal truths for anyone who wants to push their hiking further than ever before. I'll look at plenty of these universal truths shortly, but if there's one that you can't escape, it's this; this hike is going to be tough.

Endurance events like a long-distance hike take planning and training — no one thinks you can run an ultra-marathon without training, and long-distance hiking trails can be just as tough and even tougher. When it comes to how to prepare for hiking these long distances, most people focus on the physical attributes they need to develop. These are important, sure, but I like to think of my preparation as being a three-pronged approach, each of which is just as important as the others; physical, tactical, and mental. Here's how I prepare for hiking or any other endurance events.
Let's get physical
The physical attributes of training can be broken down here into two main categories; cardio exercises and weight training. To build your aerobic baseline — your cardio fitness — you should spend sustained periods of time in low-to-mid heart rate zones, either running, walking, or biking. While it's important to get your heart rate elevated to pump the blood around your body, getting it too high can actually be counterproductive to developing your cardio baseline. You want to stay in what your smartwatch would tell you is zone two — can you hold a conversation but feel a bit breathy? Perfect. Mix it up, and don't forget to add some hills into your training; just remember to control your breathing and slow down if you have to.
