You and Keegan inspired us. Anna and I headed out in the cool of the morning and she agreed to take the Red map, although I'd already come up with a bail-out plan just in case it was too much (which it was). It's extra-technical with the vegetation at this time of year - I was definitely cleaner 3 weeks ago on Brown.

We're about to do another course design for training. Any interest in the Corridor-O style of training that we put together for Mt. Wachusetts? I realize that map's far enough from home that it didn't really make sense for you guys to make multiple trips for both a course and a training, but it's easy to design another training like that for the next one if you're interested. Or something else if there's something you want to work on. I forget the map we're using, but I'm sure Jon will wave me off it it's one that isn't georeferenced and good for compass work. Let us know, happy to design to support you guys.

I would love to do a training, but I also am not sure that I will be able to get out there. I guess I would say if you think others did it/would want to do another it would be awesome, but don't go through that work for me cause my schedule is too uncertain.

Thank you so much for the courses at Wachusett!

You're welcome, thanks for keeping us all organized and still motivated to train. No worries about the next round, maybe I'll just design something and if you get there, you get there.

Wachusetts is apparently staying up another 2+ weeks or so. Not sure it's worth another visit, but it's there if the opportunity arises.

If I can, I definitely want to get out there again: the woods were actually not that green! Perhaps that's just because I was comparing it to Townsend the day before but...

Ha! It's all relative, right?
