I slept pretty good last night. It rained again overnight. I’m glad I was in the shelter. I was up early as usual. On the trail by 6:00.
The first couple of hours it wasn’t raining and then it let loose. It rained the rest of the day until I got to the shelter about 4:00. My shoes and socks are soaked. My pants are still damp. Now it’s foggy.
Like I said yesterday, I would like to get a waterproof case for my iPhone. Now I put it in a ziplock bag and put it inside my pack. Then I put a rain cover on my pack.
I have hiked in the rain everyday this week. Some days it only rained an hour or two and very lightly. Today’s rain was not light.
I have not been wearing my raincoat. It’s too hot when you’re hiking. I prefer to just get wet instead. As long as the gear in my pack doesn’t get wet I don’t care.
It’s supposed to rain for the next three days. I’m looking forward to town food tomorrow. We’re sitting in the shelter tonight talking about food. It’s the one thing that is always on our mind.
I’m also looking forward to no rain next week.
