Walking 50:00 
At BHS - tried poleless skate ski on grass on maybe 3" snow but not quite enough for dependable glide. And not over the dirt surface in parking. Better than not trying though. Right thigh burned.
Later on Memorial Field - walked by the track and around the field, on the phone part of the time with an MGH Registry lady who gave me a MR# and the best place to record it temporarily was in the snow.
Weightexercise workout 45:00 
Y after work. Snowed 2-3" last night & today. Could go thru skate motions on grass, maybe even better tomorrow morning.
Evening walk with Beth & M by the Arena. The moon was hazy, the ground white, the forest dark and there was enough natural light to see - all adding to an ethereal moment.
How it looked this morning
Walking 55:00  2.0 mi (27:30 / mi)
Two walks: AM with Mocha in Nottingcook just "wandering" in dense forest, marveling how few landmarks where we were, how much veg change and how the mind plays tricks re location and perhaps direction too, more so with age. But we came out in the back sand pit area, avoiding the wind.
PM - parked at Turee and walked around BHS campus. Used Strava for the first time. So maybe the cell phone replaces the gps watch a lot of the time, don't know.
Spent a bunch of time refreshing ourselves with Medicare supplement and
Advantage plans and what can and can't be done. Beth has the former, I the latter.
Weightexercise workout 40:00 
Sat pm around 4:30. Got to park right in front & no meter fee.
Walking 47:45  1.41 mi (33:52 / mi) +72m 29:14 / mi
Nottingcook walk with map, no compass around 3:30. Nice blend of hard and soft woods, light and dark around 3:30pm <>
Old paths are almost impossible to find now. Noted that our path had been leaf-blown - saves us time but whatever happened to cooperative effort as in the languishing Adopt-a-Trail
"program" of BOS...
came as a stumble-on. I put out a trim course 2-3yrs ago but its almost always an uphill battle getting people to use and appreciate such stuff. No one ever went to the approx 20 that I could tell. Possibly an occasional stray hunter and one person who visited for determining gps coordinates.
Learned today that my ins co won't cover my out-of-network surgery so I see I have been barking up the wrong tree for 7 weeks. I think I have to start over as I doubt any appeal will change it. Nothing like some hindsight to set things straight.
Walking 38:00  1.6 mi (23:45 / mi)
Great Hill walk - day started bright blue after a heavy night's rain. But as we drove off within the hour, it was mostly cloudy. Then it cleared again over the next 45'. Light breeze, blue eventually, usual good views to distant hills and mountains.
Just about back
Walking 27:00  1.3 mi (20:46 / mi)
Including a mile at SPS track - 19:06 which is about as fast as I can easily walk.
