The most important tip for not letting the Texas heat beat you is staying hydrated! Be sure to pack plenty of water for your overlanding adventure. Before reaching your camping destination, make sure to be aware of the locations of several drinkable water supplies.
Weather in Texas is always unpredictable and summertime is no different! Bringing clothes to layer in is a great way to be prepared for anything. Wearing light colors will help you stay cooler than wearing dark colors, so keep that in mind when packing. And don’t forget your rain gear! Summer showers can happen in an instant, so don’t get caught overlanding without rain gear.
If you can pick a campsite that has shade then utilize it the best you can! Set up your overlanding campsite in the shade to keep your equipment and tent cool while you are out exploring.
Pack smarter to avoid unnecessary items in your gear bags. The last thing you want to do is dig around in all your equipment during the heat of the day! Save space where you can especially in your cooler. One way to save space in your cooler and ensure you have plenty of water is to freeze your water bottles before you leave. Frozen water bottles are a great replacement to bags of ice and you will have plenty of water during your overlanding trip.
