    Thumbs up Car Camping: Two Years in row of bad weather Weekend 1

    As other Weekend One Car Campers can agree, we have been cursed with terrible weather every year since the whole two weekend thing has come into play. 2012 we had rain, which we weren't prepared for. 2013 we were prepared for rain but of course we got heavy wind, which we weren't prepared for.

    Does anyone have any tips, tricks or things that have worked for them? I'm optimistic that this year will be perfect weather but I'm open for suggestions for surviving the wind. That shit was insane last year.

    Thanks, guys.

    I like to check the weather report before leaving for the fields. That usually helps me prepare for the weather.

    The 2012 weather seemed fine to me, in my jacket and gloves. And 2013 I'd heard there would be wind Sunday, so I broke down my tent and put it in my car. We decided to drive toward home early and stayed in Blythe Sunday night.

    I preferred the 2013 W1 weather.
