Weather forecasts are an obvious place to start when you are planning a trip. If it is going to rain, make sure you have all the right kit for keeping dry. Check the taping of your tent’s seams before leaving and top up with sealant if needed.
You’ll be spending most of your time outdoors, so even if it’s just going to be a few showers still pack those waterproof trousers and jacket.
Keep checking the forecast for the area right up until you plan to go as forecasts become more accurate nearer to the time. If there are warnings of severe weather forecasted think about moving your trip to another time.
Top Tip: To ensure you keep all your clothing and sleeping bag nice and dry, store them in a separate dry or waterproof bag.
