XC Sking 48:02  8.77 km (5:29 / km) +99m 5:11 / km
Departure was delayed so we didn't take off until after 10 and finally in the airport hotel at 1. On the road by 8:30. Stopped at New Moon for misc skiing stuff, lunch, then over to Mosquito Brook to ski. Warm 34F and sunny and the snow was fast. We did a big loop of the flat network of trails off to the NE. Did a lot of no poles. I have a lot of "I have been on skies in 6 weeks" sore spots, particularly the outside of my left knee. I think it will go away though. Pat skied a little shorter and I went out and back to the south on the Birkie Trail. Got a good climb in a decent effort; I wanted to get some good work in. After skiing, grocery store, check into our house, pizza, then watching the Nordic World Champs sprints.
