Prepare for Bad Weather Outdoors

Dehydration caused by hot or cold temperatures is just one potentially deadly situation. Carry plenty of water and know where and how to find more!
Why is it so many people come to grief each year in weather-related accidents?

Part of the problem is arrogance. Our belief is that “we can handle it” whatever “it” happens to be.  Many have an unwavering belief in their ability to overcome the difficulties that wind, rain, plummeting temperatures, scalding heat and other extremes that weather may bring – some of these people die!
Here are several different types of  weather situations, and how you can best handle them in the wilderness
