I didn’t sleep that well due to the torrential rain that was pounding my tent. My alarm went off I shut it off by mistake waking again around 6.30 . it was still raining but only lightly. I undid the flap of my tent..Smiles and crawldaddy had gone but I could still see Samaritans tent. I hurriedly packedup. Before the next bought of rain. I hit the trail at 7.30 much later than I had wanted dam.

As I pushed on the rain returned and it was heavy very heavy. Great for climbing over slippery rock.

It wasn’t long before I came upon the first shelter I waved to the occupants and pushed on then met cruise who was getting water. See you up the trail. I knew he would soon pass me as he was very fast.

It wasn’t long until he swept past me and was gone. I plodded along untill I came to a fast moving creek. Wow water it had been such a while since I had seen water flowing..I crossed over and continued along until once again I was walking along board again but due to the rain they were lethal.
