Way of the Samurai backpacker

"There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everything."

Ah grasshopper, consider the way of the ninja backpacker as he artfully avoids the rain my slipping betwixt the individual drops
;-)

Touché! Ha ha!

I guess the ninja backpacker's choice of footwear would be Vibram Five Fingers? And the ability to 'slip betwixt the individual drops' would mean he could leave the Montane Quickfire at home. Damn, he must have a low base weight.

In the blink of an eye, the dragonfly evades the shrike.

The happy backpacker stripped off in the rain and had a wash.
