Vetting at Lake Jacomo for the Dec. 5 event. Some of the tapes weren't up, so I also taped as I went along. I spent almost 45 minutes on the second control, which was supposed to be in a depression. I had taken a trail, then went west about 30-40 meters, and couldn't find the tape, but found several depressions. I wandered around, thinking I hadn't gone far enough. Walked back to the trail, went south and picked up another small trail going west. It turned north, then when it went west again, I pace counted about 25 m and got to where I was before. No tapes. Went east, hit the trail, went north to a junction. Went back south about 100 meters, then west about 30-40 m. Same place. I put up flagging, and set out to check the others. Two didn't have tapes, but were obvious, so I taped. The last two had tapes. From the last control, I went south to hit the main trail, since going east to the trail was surrounded by dark green. South wasn't so good, either. I was in a sea of multiflora rose. I had to go way west to get around. Which is why I took so long.

It was a beautiful day, weather-wise, and felt great to be in the woods with a map. Paul had come back towards the car by the depression I had taped, and didn't see any other tapes either. We are going to compare tracks to find out where to put the control.

Then Dick, Nancy, Paul, and I went to Culver's and ate on the patio. Such fun.

Another medical day, but I am again feeling really good. When you don't feel good, it's hard to remember how good feels. And I am now cleared to do anything I feel like, except not to fall down.
