For tent campers 

The never-ending fight against water 

Experienced campers know that plastic bags and waterproof tarpaulins are faithful friends.
  • Put your clothing and sleeping bag in a garbage bag before stuffing it into your backpack or a storage pocket. 
  • Always keep your tourist guides, travel journals and camera in a Ziploc-type sealable plastic bag. 
  • Spread a tarp out on the ground before setting up your tent, for help keeping the heat in and the water out. 
  • Stretch a tarp between trees over your picnic table, to make a dry outdoor shelter when it rains.
