So far all the post seems to be about how to deal with continuous rain with gear and techniques.
When will we see posts on how to ENJOY hiking in the rain for days on end? My experience in these conditions has been pretty much all Type 2/3 fun, e.g., poor/limited visibility, increased danger from slipping/rock fall, scrambling out of valleys to avoid flooding rivers and mud slides, being blown off boardwalks into alpine swamps, praying I can get down off the ridgeline before lighting/hail knocks me off, uphill trails that have become flowing streams, mud, mud, and more mud, etc.
I curious to learn because we have a 2mos rainy season here in Japan from mid-May followed by a typhoon season thru the end of October. I don't mind getting out for day hikes around the coastal woodlands during periods of sustained rains, but the alpine mountains are a different story, especially given the effort/cost needed to get there.
