Xc sking (HH) 2:48:56  12.89 mi (13:06 / mi)
ahr:125 max:158 rhr:50 shoes: Terrasonics 185 1
HH with stina. 27 deg f, a frozen sort of snow was falling on arrival and continued for about 45 min. The road and raccoon trail was groomed over the weekend by the snowmobile club which left a firm wide track. Other trails were packed wide by the weekends heavy skier traffic. The result was the best skiing of the year. Felt good.
Kayaking (full moon pddle) 2:31:00  9.3 mi (16:14 / mi)
#53 full moon paddle with Stina. We had considered Hemlock but an earlier in the day visit revealed ice had formed on the center park of hemlock so we went to Ononda. Nice late January night, light wind and temps in the mid 20s, and no ice on the lake. The moon was behind light clouds most of the night but still visible.
Xc sking (Classic skiing) 2:09:50  7.0 mi (18:33 / mi)
Harriet with Stina. The first time in years skiing HH on classic skis (visu). About 15 deg f. And little to no wind. Due to the rxcsf snowmobile not being registered they have been unable to groom the last few day. Heavy skier traffic yesterday has produced a firm base, but no track. The snow was sharp with good kick. The leason learned to day is a too soft classic ski gives good kick but lacks directional stability due to it's short wheelbase. The results were skis that (1) slide sideways on uneven terrain, (2) would effectively break on downhills if cg was too far forward, and (3) we're not stable on down hills. But the day had sun and blue sky so a good day to be out. Thinking about it I think we could have used a colder kick wax. Used blue extra, I think green might have given acceptable kick without the speed reducer affect.
orienteering 1:51:53  5.04 mi (22:12 / mi)
An old Mendon score-o. Lots of the west side "open field". A little bit of running, mostly walking. A few inches of snow so the steeper side slopes were slippery.
Xc sking 2:51:51  17.46 km (9:51 / km)
ahr:113 max:156 shoes: Terrasonics 185 1
Cumming nature center with Stina. 7.5 km setting controls, 10 km skiing. Soft snow, about 5 inches of new powder in spots, initially not groomed, but the groomer eventually got out so free skiing was on rolled trails. Some narrow some wide enough to comfortably ski.
Xc sking (skate ski) 2:11:51  15.07 km (8:45 / km)
HH with stina. They groomed again and it firmed up a bit from yesterday, best skiing of the year. Finally felt like I know how to ski,
