No matter what the weather man says you should expect for your next camping trip it is always best to be prepared. Weather can change in an instant and the last thing you want is to be cold or to overheat. By planning for every scenario you are ensuring that no matter what comes your way you will have a good time.
During the warmer months it can especially easy to disregard bringing clothing for cold weather. Even if the days are expected to be hot it is not abnormal for temperatures to drop twenty to thirty degrees in the evening. It is ideal to have warm, comfortable pants and a heavy hoodie on hand so that you can enjoy sitting by the fire without having thoughts about getting a little too close. You may even want to bring a hat in case temperatures really drop. Remember that you will be having to leave the comfort of your tent if you need to make a trip to a bathroom.
You should also bring the appropriate gear that will get you through a rain storm. Nothing is worse than being stuck in the rain for a few hours or a few days and having no way to keep dry. Bringing a pair of rain boots and a poncho will go a long way towards keeping your comfortable if it does happen to rain while you are out in the wilderness.
Of course, you will want to bring a variety of shorts, pants, t-shirts and long sleeve shirts as well. These can help to keep you cool or protect you from the elements. When going camping you can experience all sorts of situations in just a few days. The more variety that you have in what you pack the happier you will be with the entire experience.
