Extreme weather can present challenges, but also opportunities for new experiences. So, what exactly are extreme weather conditions? What is it that you can’t stand when it comes to weather? Here are some tips on how to embrace the risks and have a great time!
Enjoy The Rain
Above all, rain is one of the major turn-offs when it comes to outdoor activities: who would enjoy hiking if it’s raining? However, you can take advantage and enjoy this weather condition. Start by using water-resistant clothing and shoes.
If you’re traveling or just going somewhere where you need to take some clothing or stuff with you, bring a bag or a backpack designed for being carried in extreme wet conditions so your belongings stay safe. After all, heavy rain can be quite bearable if you learn to enjoy it and don’t get soaking wet.
Rent or buy a quality bicycle with full coverage “plastic” tires (such as kryptonite or other similar materials). These items will keep you protected from the wet. Be comfortable getting wet!
There is nothing more fun than playing in puddles and splashing water everywhere! You can even build a shelter using your umbrella; don’t forget that role-playing makes everything more fun!
Enjoy The Cold
If you’re not the type of person who stays warm easily, some extremely cold weather can be a great time for you. There are plenty of options out there that allow enjoying the outdoors without being fully exposed to harsh conditions.
If you just want some fresh air and some exercise, go for outdoor winter sports such as cross-country skiing or snowshoeing: this way you’ll enjoy yourself while doing something active. Alternatively, if it’s too cold for your taste but still bearable to get outside, rock climbing or ice fishing are both solid options: they require you to stay in one place so you don’t need the energy to move around and they will keep you warm once you get in motion.
However, having a proper shelter is a must for extreme cold weather activities. Lots of fellow travelers and campers are thinking about purchasing an RV that contains everything a person might need for their outdoor adventures. Investing in a quality vehicle will make extreme weather conditions much more bearable and enjoyable, ensuring you get the best out of everything without having to worry about anything else!
Look For A Quality Product From Your Outdoor Clothing Store
Make sure you invest in a good quality winter coat with high-quality insulation and waterproof material. Remember that if you’re going to be outdoors for a long time, it’s better to buy appropriate clothing than rent or borrow from another person: the top of your priority list is staying warm and dry! Replace old clothes with new ones, they will keep you warmer longer.
Don’t forget about accessories such as gloves, windproof windcheaters, scarves, thermal underwear, or boots that can protect you from both cold and wetness!
Enjoy The Heat
Some people cannot stand heat waves. If this is your case, here are some tips to make it bearable: avoid going outdoors during the hottest hours of the day, which are usually between noon and 6 pm. If you have an outdoor activity planned already, wait for a cooler part of the day or go earlier. Make sure you hydrate yourself so you stay well-hydrated throughout the day!
Make Sure You Have Good Company
It’s much easier to have a fun time despite the conditions if you’re surrounded by people who are up for enjoying themselves too. If you don’t have any friends to go with, look online or ask around for upcoming events that might interest you. Even if it’s just going out for a drink with some buddies, make sure you do something together!
What About Bugs?
Even the most hardcore nature lovers hate bugs: they aren’t dangerous animals but still can create quite an inconvenience when outdoors! However, there are ways to use them in your favor. Mosquitoes and other biting insects represent a major annoyance factor but their reproductive cycle is not limited to summertime.
Try this out: start inviting friends over spring or early fall so you have a larger group of people to spend time with. As soon as it gets dark, release swarms of mosquitoes into each room and enjoy your evening outside where there are no bugs!
No Internet? No Problem!
The internet is an incredible resource for finding out about events or activities around you, but try getting offline once in a while: go somewhere without any connection options available for you to use.
Pack up all the equipment you need (check if everything works beforehand) and go hiking or camping far away from civilization! It will be much more fun that way because it’s something new rather than just another night at home.
The possibilities are endless when it comes to enjoying outdoor activities during extreme weather conditions. Don’t be afraid to get wet if it means cooling off in some cool water! Participate in summer sports such as surfing, kayaking, or even just taking a dip in a lake with your friends. Swimming is always one of the best ways to beat heat waves!
