Rain drops on a treeRain has been known to ruin parades, but that doesn’t mean it has to ruin your day. The next time that weather forecast is looking grim, keep your head up. Here are 5 things to do in the rain for people who love spending time outdoors.

Plan your next adventure

Nobody wants to waste a beautiful day indoors planning a trip, but you have to make preparations sometime. Make the most of fowl weather and take the time to plan your next adventure. Look up travel details, make a list of things to do, write out a list of the things that you want to pack, and dream of better weather!

Organize your gear closet

Again, this is something that’s important to do, but bluebird skies can keep this from happening. Next time there’s a downpour, spend the day cleaning and organizing your camping equipment and outdoor gear. Air out your sleeping bags, hang up your packs, and make sure that everything is in place. Here are some tips for organizing outdoor gear.

Do go chasing waterfalls

Assuming that there isn’t any lightning, getting outdoors in the rain can actually be a whole lot of fun. Rainstorms are also the best time to see waterfalls. Those falls that are faint trickles during the hot summer months will be ripe and juicy when they’re full of rain water.

Grab your paddle

Experienced paddlers know that heavy rains are the best time to get on the river if you’re looking for a challenge. That being said, do not take your boat out on the river in heavy rains unless you’re experienced, and you know how to handle yourself on the water. Flooded rivers can be fun and challenging, but they can be downright dangerous.

Visit your favorite outdoor gear store

Do you need a new rain jacket? Is it time for a new dry bag? Maybe you just love browsing the aisles in gear shops. If it’s too wet to get outside, consider stopping by one of your local outdoor gear shops. Whether you’re looking to add something to your inventory, or you’re just looking to kill some time until the sun comes out again, stop by and see us. We’re here rain or shine!
