Camping In Rainy Day
- 25 March 2015
Look at those cloudy sky!
It was our third camping with our homeschool community, Klub Sinau. And it was rainy day! Most of campers tend to ignore rain, but not us. Camping in rainy day is so challenging, we learn how to survive from the rain in the tent with dry clothes, sleeping bag, and food! Can we? Yes we can!
Here are some tips for you to successfully camp in the rain:
Use waterproof tent with double roof. This kind of tent will protect you from the rain, even the hard rain.
Install your tent in correct way, this is to make sure you are well covered by your tent. Every kind of tent have their own installing instruction, you should follow the instructions of your own tent.
Make trench surrounding your tent right below your tent’s outer cover, except the door side. The trench is the way for the water to flow, this will make sure the water not into the bottom of your tent. If the water logged in the bottom of your tent, your tent will absorb it, and the inside part of your tent will getting wet, so does your clothes and all stuffs inside your tent.
Don’t forget to get your raincoat and boots. They will be your helpful gadgets if you need to get out from the tent.
Bring board games or books to spending time, cause you can’t get out from your tent and enjoy the nature for a while.
Don’t forget to bring the ready-to-serve snacks! The cold weather will make you hungry all over the time and you will not be able to cook!

Yes, we are save and sound inside the tent
We came at the camping ground at noon, after we build the tent came the hard rain. It finished at night. Thank God we still have time to cook for our dinner and made up the campfire.
Beautiful, fresh, and calm morning... love it so much!
Morning is always be the most beautiful time for me. I breathe the fresh air deeply, set up my pray, and suddenly I felt healthier. I turned on the stove, cooked water to make coffee for me and my husband, tea for my son and my mother. The beautiful nature, fresh air, delicious coffee, warm family and friends... what else more precious than these? I thank God for all that I have. And I still hope that we can go for next camping, whether in the rain or not.
