The rain fell and fell some more. I did sneak in two very short bike rides, a ranger program, long walks (but not on flooded trails), read three books, and dried up a few tent puddles. Taking down the muddy, saturated tent was no joy either, but I rolled a day earlier than planned as I headed south into the possibility of Hurricane Florence effects. Weather, yes it does affect my life!
I'm now comfortably back to my "state of residence" for at least a week, taking care of life's tasks, and socializing like crazy. From here, I point north again! Yes, I am seemingly confused.
