So sore from yesterday. Supposed to rain most of the afternoon, so drove Pepper to the dog park. Stayed about an 75 minutes.

We Were getting ready to leave when good friend Zak arrived.

Orienteering (Orange) 1:31:16 [3] 4.54 mi (20:06 / mi) +193m 17:45 / mi
ahr:140 max:193

No Pepper today because we had a nice warm building instead, with no dogs allowed. No complaints.

The advanced courses looked brutal, so with the other options being White or Orange, I did Orange. Peppering must be doing something, because I felt pretty strong, though I wished I had brought a GU or something along, since I was fading at the end. Fastest to the first control - WooHoo! Second overall, but 21 minutes behind a high schooler. Good for him.

Brain fart from 3-4 - how hard can it be?! Hard enough that paying attenrion would have been good.

Sidehilling 6-7 was not the best option. Going back to the trail or going higher would have been better, but I was concerned about the OOB.

Not the best route choice from 7-8 perhaps, but the alternative didn't look like it would be any fun.

Distracted near the end of 8-9 when I chatted with Mike N about his missing compass and then missed seeing that I had crossed the power lines.

Despite all of that :), it was so nice to be out in the woods, on a crisp winter day. It reminds me that I want to do more of this.

Groundhog Day - very windy.

Pepper sees her shadow...

...she doesn't look too happy about it.

Peppering (Dog Park) 20:00 [1] 1.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Lots of excitement at the dog park today...

I actually was civic minded and reported it, and got a couple of emails in reply:
I apologize for the concern that our training caused you the other day. The green substance you saw in Four Mile Run Creek is a harmless and environmentally safe dye usually used to find leaks in pipes. The Fire Department Training Division made notifications to our Emergency Communications Center and the Department of Environmental Services prior to the training in the event someone called. They also had a sign indicating that there was Fire Department Training in the area. However, they overlooked the need to post signs in the dog park and along the trail. Thank you for your concern and for making the suggestion that we put more signs out. I stopped by the Training Academy today and passed along your recommendation. They admitted the oversight and will do better next time. Thank you for your involvement in our community. “If you see something, say something.”

Pepper it is time to get up...yes, it is 20 degrees...

Pepper says - I'll keep the bed warm for you.

So, after work we went out back to Beagle Woods...will need to map this rootstock.

While Pepper was off visiting the fox hole,

I found this...think there may be one less fox for Pepper to chase.
