It rained last night, so staying in the shelter was a great idea.
It rained all day, so I arrived at around the bend hospital, soaking wet, ready for a shower and laundry. Resupply is done and I’ll be heading out on the trail again tomorrow.
I also slipped and fell in the mud on the trail. I broke a stage in my pack when I fell. One of the hikers found an aluminum pole in the hiker box that did the trick; it’s now fixed.

I’m glad to hear that you survived the fall and you were able to repair your backpack. Call me if you need me.
