No rain, no pain, no Maine

today was nice but the last couple of days have been pretty rainy.  yesterday was pretty bad...i was soaked by the time i hiked 4 hours. sooner or later  you have to hike in the rain if you want to finish the hike...if you can get to a shelter you can limit the stuff that get wet to just your hiking clothes  but it doesnt work so well if you have to camp.  im a fan of sleeping in the shelters over being skeeved out by the mice...ive had them crawl on my sleeping bag..get into my pack..not a big deal the smokies we were required to stay in the shelters but now i dont mind them...especially when its raining...
