Ayce - AT - Apr 5, 2013 - 48 Hours Of Rain
Well, for lack of better words, the past 48 hours sucked. Nothing but rain, snow, and sleet for a straight 2 days. Honestly I dont really mind precipitation but this particular time it really messed with my head. My base layers got soaked so I had to book it to a shelter last night to get out of them and into my sleeping bag to avoid hypo. I completely lost feeling in both my hands and feet but was fine after getting in the bag. This morning mostly everything was frozen (of course) so I had to use my only dry clothes left in another day of rain. Finally after getting completely drenched again, I picked up the pace to a 14 mile shelter. This time the sun finally came out so I stripped down and let everything dry out on a clothesline I rigged up. A few thru hikers passed and just waved like no big deal that I was nearly nude. However an older couple who were doing a 4 day section hike stopped for some food at this shelter and probably thought I was some sort of lunatic walking around in practically nothing. Whatever. Dinner and a show!

Tomorrow I will hike 26 to just short of Damascus where I will camp before heading into town Sunday morning and spending the night. Then it's a 80 mile sprint to make it to Maria a week from today! I'm very excited and it has put me in a much better mood than ive been in this awful weather.
