Orienteering race 1:20:38 [4] *** 6.4 km (12:36 / km) +230m 10:41 / km
spiked:11/15c shoes: VJ Falcons

Red course at Paugussett SF (WCOC). Good run on a hot day (80's and sunny). About 5 minutes of errors spread across several controls. Focussed on keeping map contact, especially through the technical areas (of which there were plenty). Biggest errors were due to being distracted by other people - need to work on this. Very nice course by Dave Webber.

Walking (Hiking) 3:45:00 [2] ** 7.1 mi (31:41 / mi)
shoes: NB 809

Hike at Moreau Lake SP checking out the western part of the park for possible O-mapping (we already have aerial photos). Terrain is pretty nice - mix of beech and oak forest with summertime visibility of 70 - 100m along with very open hemlock areas. Some detailed contour areas (glacial) with lots of rock features throughout (but not real rocky underfoot). Could be fast but challenging. It also has some pretty good views of the southern Adirondacks and the Hudson River. The area is labeled as the "Palmertown Range" on the USGS Gansevoort (NY) Quadrangle.

The only problem is one of accessibility (and A-meet logistics). The area is on a plateau with about a 500 foot climb to access it. The only road which goes significantly up the hill is the one to a medium security prison located south of the State Park land. Trails access the plateau, but would a bus ride followed by a 1.2k walk to start with 150m of climb be OK?

Trail Run 43:49 [3] ** 3.47 mi (12:38 / mi)
shoes: NB 809

Beebe Hill SF - ran to "No Bottom Pond" on trails, then circumnavigated the pond, which was mostly a bushwack, and then took trails back to the car. The pond is quite a bit larger than shown on the USGS topo due to beaver activity along the stream draining the pond. Much of the "trail" is a woods road which is mostly covered with high grass so the going was tough. Ran into a few thick areas while off the trail - O-clothes would have been more suitable than the shorts and singlet I was wearing. Couldn't take the trail route back I had intended because the trail was flooded so just doubled back the way I came. Overcast and 70's but quite humid. Interesting area around the pond with some karst and some 5m high cliffs - need to explore beyond the cliffs to see what's there.
