Leisurely breakfast, then we took the train into Milan from Arona with Matt and Sheryl and the girls, then subway to the Duomo area. So crowded! A lot of walking around town, tried to get into the Duomo, but the lines were just way too long, so instead we went to the church of San Bernardino alle Ossa, and har to imagine the Duomo could have been any more interesting. An entire chapel lined floor to ceiling with human bones. And then some more walking around, stopped for a few coffees, and eventually walked back to Garibaldi and caught the last train back. We had a very lovely mushroom risotto Matt cooked, and some fine wine, stayed up a while talking about this and that. Very impressed with the level of the homework the girls are doing in school. Georgia’s 5th grade grammar book covers a lot of the same ground that my graduate class did.

In Dormelletto, Italia with our friends Matt and Sheryl and their kids, Georgia and Rosie. Nice walk in the park in the morning with Matt and the girls, then a little road trip to Lake Orta where we had a pretty fine lunch at the hotel in Orta San Giulio next to the lake, lake fish ravioli for me. Rhonda stayed home to nurse some jet lag. Pretty fine here.

Hike 45:00 [1] 2.5 mi (18:00 / mi)
slept:7.5 weight:167.4lbs shoes: 2017 Gray Gel Kayanos

Around the neighborhood with Rhonda - the Ann loop. Picked up some roadside trash on the way back, and nice that the trash barrels were still out along the road so I didn't have to shlep it all home.


Dog loop with R, Z and S, in about 5-6" of snow, quite pleasant. Stopped a few times just to look around. Sassy has been seeming a bit lethargic and off lately, but seemed to do fine out walking around. She had to stop pretty often to chew the ice out from between her toes, but it didn't slow her down much.

Trip around the Rhino, unencumbered by map, compass, dibber, headlamp or glasses. Really rather pleasant that way. I had hoped I could do it in 40, but ran into some folks who were strolling in the woods between #4 and #5. Still, not bad to be under 43, so a successful outing. The dog had no trouble keeping up. I run so little these days that it was even more dramatic how out of breath I get going uphill.

On reviewing the track, it looks like I lost about 2:30 chatting folks up. Seemed longer!

Nice picture of cadets from last night here.
3 PM

Orienteering 25:00 [0]

picked up half the controls. That is, half by number, as I just got the near-in ones and didn't have time for a longer excursion. I'll get the rest tomorrow.
