Woke up this morning to rain.  I was not at all ready to get moving.  I heard Hop Along come over with my food bag.  He said he was over the rain and was not going to stop hiking until he got to the hostel.  I finally got moving around 8:40.  Pretty uneventful day.  It rained off and on throughout the day.  I tried to stay focused, and made the mileage by 4:45.  Hop Along had gotten there by 3:00.  He was not messing around!

I got to the hostel and showered and started relaxing.  Around 6:30 the owner got home and took us into town.  We stopped at an Italian place and then got our resupply done.  The question for tomorrow is do we leave or take a zero.
