Give yourself one point for each question you answered correctly

9-10 points: High and dry
You obviously only took this quiz for sheer entertainment value. You’re an expert at beading off moisture.

5-8: Semi-arid
You’re clothes might be damp and your feet wet, but you’ll likely make it out of the woods if the mercury doesn’t drop below 50°F.

1-4: Swamp thing
Maybe desert camping is more your style. If you plan on heading anyplace where yearly rainfall averages more than an inch, we recommend a fact-finding expedition to your local gear store, or a thorough reading of our waterproofing guide.
