Tented at Cody Gap last night, at around 4:00 am it started to rain. I Laid in my tent listening to the rain hitting my rain fly. Sometime during the next couple hours the rain stopped.
The weather forecast called for thunder storms to arrive about noon. Even though it was still dark, I used my light to pack up and started hiking while it was still dark, hopping to beat the storm. It was about 7:00 am when I left and I had 8 miles to cover before the storm hit.
Well around 9:00 am the rain cut loose. The weather man was wrong, can you believe that!
Nothing to do but hike. But a March rain is cold and miserable. Finally made it to Fontana Dam and got a room at the Lodge. Resupplied for the next five days through the Smoky’s, did laundry, got a shower and ate a big meal at the restaurant.
Now kicked back in my room watching the Buckeyes.
Life is good
