Orienteering (Field Checking) 2:05:00 [3] 2.6 mi (48:05 / mi) +55m 45:08 / mi
slept:8.0 weight:196lbs (injured)

Wheaton Regional Park, MD. I finished off field checking the small new area, then went through Brookside Gardens. There is a maintenance area with woods surrounding it. That area is marked off-limits and the woods are almost uniformly horrible. There are runners who pass through the fenced-in gardens. The gardens would be great for a sprint but really one would need to stay on trails wherever it isn't open. It'd be distracting too, to other patrons for a race to pass through the formal areas. At one point, I was mapping an area in a slightly forested area where came across a trio doing a photo shoot. There was mini photography tent like the old dark rooms for plate based photography. That turned out to be a changing booth for what appeared to be a model. The Latino model was in a wedding gown and came out. Though she had on a full skirt, she had only a bra on top and she may have been pregnant. They did take a few pictures before I wandered elsewhere. There is one hill in the gardens with intricate trails and placed boulders that could be good for some mostly mental training.

Wheaton Regional Park, MD. I continued field checking some new areas of the park, as well as making updates. This was in the northwestern areas. I was able to get into Brookside Gardens a little. I was trying to see what the woods around the maintenance area were like--they were worse than I'd hoped for, and it was questionable whether they could be used, even if they weren't so unpleasant. It might be that the woods are bad because a deer fence keeps the deer out. Though the trees are not young, the forest being on the sunny side of a hill could add to that. I did unexpectedly find a ride, and the remnants of some old trails.

Orienteering (Field Checking) 2:11:07 [3] 2.87 mi (45:41 / mi) +99m 41:17 / mi
(injured)

Wheaton Regional Park, MD. Having added LiDAR based contours, I mapped areas in the northwest part of the park. Most of the area was somewhat junk, as one would expect from ground where there has been a lot of human presence there, passing through, or just being nearby. However, there was a small but very nice section with parallel ditches bordering on gullies. The woods there were a mix of open to light green--just enough green to keep it from being too easy.
