Met Sam and Lena at Shickshinny for some orienteering. The day was perfect and the woods were fabulous. It just doesn't get much better than this.

Was 1:56:05 on the 5.7km course - Advanced2 on the Shickshinny2 UsynligO app. The rest of the time is the walk to start.

No real issues although I took my time finding a way through some prickers right after #10 and messed up the short leg to #14 by staying up on the ridge where 13 was and not believing for a bit that I needed to go down into what looked in the terrain as a big valley but was in fact just a shelf one contour down and where I needed to be. Wasn't moving particularly fast but was having fun. The view over the Susquehanna River at #11 was stunning.

This is just fabulous terrain if you stay out of the laurel which I designed the course to do. Thanks Greg for the map!

Took a short rest and then did the Bonus 1.7k course. The course took 44:08; the rest of the time is the walk back to my car.

I wanted to revisit this section of the map because it gave me so much trouble the last time I was there. No real problems this time although it took me several looks at the map to realize I was one ridge over at #4. There was a lot of blowdown on that ridge so it was slow going for me. It would be fun to map this area well and then blow it up even more. This was 1:7500 but 1:5000 or even 1:4000 and more precise mapping would be a lot of fun. Definitely got some climb in on this one.

Long ramble in the Wissahickon. Definitely on the longer end of what I can do comfortably right now; the last mile was a bit of a struggle.

Nearly got run over by bikers several times. I wasn't even listening to a book, just letting my mind wander, and they would come up behind me and I wouldn't hear them and they wouldn't slow down.

My unscientific observations:
10% or less of bikers were wearing face coverings
90% or more of hikers/runners on the trails were wearing face coverings
10% or less of hikers/runners/walkers on the drive were wearing face coverings

Note

:(

The sellers decided they really didn't want to sell after all and are taking the house off the market. I'm totally bummed.
