orienteering (course setting) 2:52:04 [1] 8.98 km (19:09 / km) +262m 16:43 / km

Gunstock, mix of mountain biking and walking. The bike was definitely worthwhile, got me between areas with less effort and a lot less time than if I'd been walking, but for the last section that I did, it would not have been helpful, so I tossed it back in the car. Hot (low 90s) and pretty humid, totally draining, and this was all I could take. After having had quite a bit of water, I had no trouble draining a liter of Coke on the way home. Mosquitoes were getting bad at the and, but I only found one tick (on the seat of my car). I'm hoping that one more day out there will do it, or close to it at least.

paddling (kayak) 1:01:00 [1] 4.52 km (13:30 / km)

Lake Massabesic, with Nancy, leisurely paddle at the end of the day on the west side. Forgot my watch, lifted the distance from hers.

CCW, ahead of The Dim, just a few of everybody's favorite bugs* out at the end. Felt pretty good through to the end. Not really muddy anywhere, just a bit soft in a few places, and Old City Road was mercifully dry (though the footing was still terrible). Either there's a fair bit of MTB traffic here on the weekends, or somebody raked these trails, becausenow they're really easy to follow. This appears to be a PR in terms of time, though not in terms of pace, because other times the GPS distance came out longer. Not clear why. There was a bit at the beginning when I think there was an alternate trail routing, but I don't think it made a difference in terms of length.

If we manage to get the permission issues straightened out and get a map of this place, I need to remember to hold a meet here some year the last weekend in June, because the laurel is so beautiful. Actually, Townsend State Forest is probably about the same, and we have a map there. I wonder is this is a particularly auspicious year.
