I started camping regularly when my son joined Cub Scouts 5 years ago. We always watch the weather to prepare for the worst. Rain or shine, we camp. I remember when we had a fire going and you could see rain water flowing under
the fire. We had to trench around some of the tents to keep water from flowing under then. I hadn't discovered the wonderful world of hammocks yet. No lightning, just rain, lots of rain for hours.
Lightning or dangerous weather is a trip ender
. Frankly, that was the best camp out my son and I had been on to date. It was a blast! We made some real friends that awesome, rainy night. The next day was absolutely perfect, Cool, clear and sunny.
Watch the weather, Expect the best, Prepare for the worst!
It could be the best time you've ever had.
