Another day, another good omen....

At Walter's. He has a CompuTrainer set-up with space for 7 bikes. I'm not on the A team, but he lets me know when there are vacancies. I like going for social reasons, but it's always hard work, and today was no exception. Not sure I would go so far as to call it fun.

The part that definitely was fun was just when I got there. Spotted a thin little critter, almost all white, long tail, darting between wood piles. Got the camera just to see if I could get some sort of evidence, and was pleasantly surprised by the result. Long-tailed weasel, I think, based on size and length of tail vs. length of body..

Up the river a bit, late afternoon. Lower 30s, overcast, not much wind. No falls, one owl.

Another barred owl. Just happened to spot it on the way north. Owls now appearing to be a dime a dozen, I kept moving, wanted to make sure I got at least the minimum in.

Twenty minutes later I was coming back, wondering if it would still be there, and it was. Right by the road. Stopped, got out my phone, framed the photo, needed to be closer. The bird was showing no signs of distress, so I crossed to the side of the road closer to it. Maybe 10 yards away now? Took a photo, backed up and left quietly as I could.

So that's 2 in 2 days. Always a pleasure to see an owl, and I assume it's a good omen.

Note

No falls (no ride, so no falls is to be expected), one owl.

ahr:118 max:139 weight:138lbs

Around and about on the flats south of town. Not much zip in the legs, or not working very hard, or probably some of both. No falls, no owls.

Upper 30s, overcast, breezy from the west.

North up the river, with Gail. Low 30s, some sun, not much wind. A little faster today (back on home turf?), and no falls. :-)

Scale says I survived the trip just fine, but it only shows the gross amount, not the distribution. Feels like the latter is changing.

biking - dark blue bike 43:34 intensity: (38 @1) + (25:32 @2) + (17:21 @3) + (3 @4) 10.29 mi (4:14 / mi) +136ft 4:11 / mi
ahr:126 max:151

Back home mid-afternoon, just enough time for a Valerie (10 miles, certainly no less, preferably very little more), finished right at sunset. A little ways north along the west side of the river but stopping just before the hills. Upper 20s, sunny, very little wind.

9 PM

Note

Really nice trip south. Three days to drive to Atlanta to visit Gail's relatives with enough time each day for a ride. About 5 days there, very enjoyable. Then about a week over towards the coast, a rainy start but then fabulous weather, 60s and sunny. Then back north with visits to a lifelong friend of Gail's, and orienteering friends Kissy, Valerie, Boris and Alli (and Inara and Barney), and Sandy. All a great pleasure.

Interesting group, the O' friends. All are getting on a bit (well, nowhere close to me, but still...), even Boris, first remember him at WOC93, helping me peddle as many copies of the relay maps as possible and he was real good at it. Though of course Alli gets a pass, so I guess it's was only 4 semi-geezers.

But think about their contributions to the sport.

Kissy's latest is a couple of years as president of the federation. Valerie has been taking care of meet administration and timing and results forever. Boris and Alli do the monthly OUSA newsletter. And Sandy stepped up to handle all the federation's administrative stuff a while back, plus had directed a zillion events including the 2014 North Americans.

I've heard it said that there are too many "old" people in the sport. Seems like there aren't enough.

Of course, there aren't enough young people either.
