So, I have planned to hike in the ANF with a few friends and relatives next weekend and there is a *chance* that it is going to be cold and rainy. Neither bothers me too much, but I was curious what contingent items you might take with you knowing that you may be parked at camp with a few people versus hiking in the rain (not preferable for a few of the participants). Chances are likely that it was going to be a leisurely weekend anyway and we planned on enjoying the outdoors and hanging out. I could just chill and play cards or something, but what is the best way to congregate say 4 people while staying relatively dry? Take some cordage and an adequately sized tarp to string up as a communal hangout area (we are all tent campers, so no tarps are typically along)?
