Woke up and started hiking by 7:45 am. It started pouring rain around 9 and the temperature started to drop. Hiked about 5 miles to the side trail to Vango Abbey Memorial Hostel and decided to wait out the rain. This hostel is owned by Scotty, a former thru-hiker. It’s cheap and simply laid out,but it was a warm and dry night after days of rain. Tomorrow, I’ll hike the 11 miles to Kincora hostel where I have a food drop.
