I've been section hiking the Appalachian Trail for a number of years, in what we laughingly call my free time. Since I usually have a very narrow window to hike, I go when I can, no matter what the weather. One of my previous jobs was tracking droughts here in the Florida Panhandle. During the drought of record (the worst drought in recorded history) back in the '90's, I decided to go hiking in Georgia. You probably guessed it; the remnants of a tropical storm went over the area! Shortly after I drove up and started hiking, the sky opened up. Rained 24 hours a day for the five days I hiked! Despite the rain, the ground soaked up everything that hit it; never got muddy. Every spring and stream was dry. The trail club that maintains that area left 2-liter bottles of water at various places for hikers like me. (Bless them!!) One of the few folks I met out there christened me with my trail name, which I use here.
