Bike O on west campus, following the "hard surfaces only" rule
Pretty easy day although the wind was fierce.
Mistake at 10, but I didn't realize it until I looked at my track
Chose the long route to 11 because I didn't want to carry my bike up the stairs.
Couldn't go exactly to 15 because someone was repairing the steps.

Inspired by Pink Socks, I've been following some Black, Native American and Latina outdoor groups. I'm listening so we can start to understand how to increase POC participation at orienteering. I came across this interesting article:

A weird day: I went back to work for the first time since March. I had to meet face-to-face with the manufacturing crew, who have been there all along. Everyone wearing masks, screened upon entrance, etc. I felt safe most of the time, except they are all used to standing close together. I kept having to back away from them! Otherwise, I was surprised at how normal it felt to be back, as if no time had passed.

After, I went to JCCC to run a course that Mike had set for me. I gave him an old map with some artificial "fences" on the map (thick black lines). This is a good way to use a familiar area.

I had just enough time to run the course before sunset. The hardest part was that I really had to pee and every step was a blow to my bladder. It was distracting, I kept trying to think of places I could stop, but of course I couldn't.

The map has changed a bit but the only place that gave me trouble was new parking lots around 12. I had the nagging feeling that I had gone too far, but stilI kept on going.

Another vacation day. It's going to be a tough adjustment if I take regular vacations in 2021, instead of taking a day off every two-three weeks :) Slept really late and did a bit of sewing on my new project (bomber jacket).

I'm trying to keep myself entertained with some novelty in these boring times. So I decided to visit the ethnic stores in town. Today I visited the African-Jamaican grocery. The owner is from Nigeria and has been here for 30+ years. I decided I wanted to recreate the goat stew our neighbor (in KC) made for us years ago. He talked me through the recipe and I bought the special or unique ingredients I would need.

Then I went to the Arboretum/dog park and ran Gene's course. I went backwards. I don't know the dog park very well, and I had messed it up badly at the original race, so this was fun to try again.

I almost made it out without seeing any dogs. Two square headed dogs stopped when they saw me then ran right at me and started jumping on me. They weren't acting threatening but I was still scared. I talked to the owner, just to get his attention. I didn't want to be a jerk (this is the dog park after all, made for dogs to run free) but I also didn't think they had to be jumping all over me. I kept moving in one direction, they moved off in the other direction.

A beautiful fall day, lovely to be out and about. Finished the day with take out from Terrebonne (I don't cook on vacation days :)

Edit: I also drove around some streets in NW Lawrence (part of my quest to hit every road on foot, bike or car). I discovered there is a "Fort Laramie Street" in Lawrence!

Went for a longish O session between rain storms. Nice to have cooler temps today!

I took it easy and explored. I read plaques, went to areas I hadn't seen before (#5) and stopped to look at the water a lot. For the first time, I saw other people looking at the lion head water fountain (#15) and had to wait for a train (#21).

I used O-range. I like it.
