Orienteering 1:30:00 [3] 3.0 mi (30:00 / mi)

Waking controls & picking up some at the end of the day. Was pretty concerned about waking up myself, 60 miles away at 0600 and getting out the door on time. A smart phone and an iPad alarm both set for 6am added reassurance.

So nice in the woods at the end of the day with the slanting shafts of light.

Walking 53:00 [1] 2.8 mi (18:56 / mi)

After work, around 1pm. Wanted something different or at least not visited in a while. Just north of Concord fit the bill. Along the Merrimack for a bit, in a field. Flat, fertile farmland.

Early enough to bed, early to rise in the morning for NAOC helper work.

Walking 30:00 [1] 1.0 mi (30:00 / mi)

Walk with Mocha at the brush dump which runs along north portion of Nottingcook as does the power line. Concluded this beast was the culprit that took what must have been a joy ride on an adjacent forest road, leaving minor damage - broken tree branches (more than 10' above ground) and downed trees either side. PSNH or a contractor is working on the power line. However, I don't see how there would be a justification/explanation this road taken.

Orienteering 3:00:00 [2] 4.0 mi (45:00 / mi)

At Burnt Mt. with Alar putting put flags for the long. We set up 23, I think.

Started by going up & up to the quarry area. More than a WP climb. I needed several rest stops. A visitor drank from one of the gallon jugs at the water stop. We had not noticed but then Alar found the jug in a crevice. Then we noticed that the used cup had been put back in the wrapping with the others. The point was near a trail and at the quarry. My first impression was that it was quite isolated. Amazing terrain. Had a nice time working together. Long, creative walk back after the last flag placed.

Walking 42:00 [1] 2.1 mi (20:00 / mi)

After work from 5th District Rd. Went all over the lot Beth & I admired some 10 yrs ago. Still largely hardwood forest & field. Followed an old leafy road away & away until continuing on as the way of returning became the priority. The Google app on the smart phone added a bit of fun - even if the sun alone could have done the trick. Someone pointed out to me the other day the iPhone health app with its gps measuring function. Used that for distance. A nice part of west Concord to investigate more.

8 AM

Rowing 45:43 [1] 1.32 mi (34:39 / mi)

Walk on Bull I and then a short row along the harbor shore. Rained a lot today. Colors coming. Naushon & the other Elizabeths are gorgeous.

6 PM

Rowing 45:52 [1] 1.39 mi (33:00 / mi)

A row around Hadley Harbor nooks & crannies. Tried to do a circle but the one obvious crossing point n. of Monohansett had a small stone wall atop it. It would have taken too long to go around the island given the time.
