I’m back on the trail again. Remember that country music song?
Anyways, made it 16 miles today. Thunderstorms had me set up camp a little sooner than I might have have. It is ok. After I set up and one wave of rain ended, I realized I set up not far from a road and not far from someones back yard of their home. Oh well!
Got the tent set up in pouring rain and my backpack under the vestibule. I got naked outside in the rain, put my wet clothes under the vestibule. Then I got in the tent, wiped myself dry and the inside of the tent with my pack towel. Then I set up the inside of my tent as it rained. All dry inside the tent. The mosquitos are pretty bad outside tonight, I suspect the rain agitated them. There are forecast to be several waves of thunderstorms tonight.
The hiking today was along a nice river for a while and then a fair amount of steep up and downs. My feet and ankles were a little sore and acting out today. It was hot and humid and all of us hikers and our clothing were totally sweat soaked.
