I think the storm is over. The thunder stopped around 4am. My tent fly is soaked. I’ll pack it separately from my tent. Must have a dry tent. Must have a dry sleeping bag and pad. If I get stuck. Staying warm is the most important thing. Even in summer. Wind up on the mountain changes everything. Hypothermia becomes easy.
I’m up and hiking. There is a little rain. I’m wet. I can’t tell what is sweat and what is rain water. It doesn’t matter.
Here are some shots from today. I had 3 miles to Saunders Shelter, for a break and water. Then I will go as far as I can.
I’m camped. Great Spotify went aroind 10 miles. Tomorrow I have 4.9 into Damascus. Into Damascus!!!
