Weightexercise workout 40:00 [1]

At Y around 5pm, pleasantly quiet. Snow today, maybe 3" by dark.

Yesterday marked two endings: the first a colleague, 60, retiring after 32 yrs at NHH. I'd worked with him since '04. A noon hour party, turn in keys and pager at 2p and away into the future. Tho I expect to see him from time to time. The second was the completion of a house project that stretched out to two months. It involved removal of a 40 y/o passive solar system. "Harvested" were 16 sheets of 4 by 8' sheet glass. Today a young man drove from the Worcester area to pick up 8 of them. Tomorrow another from Concord is coming by for the other 8. At $10/sheet, a real deal for that particular person in need of such. I'm pleased to see the driveway mess slowly disappear. Still remaining are a 35 foot dumpster and a porta-potti. Three mini-split heaters were added and where there were formerly two walls, now there are 4 windows letting the outside in.

Walking 35:00 [1] 1.0 mi (35:00 / mi)

Contemplative walk at BHS at dusk. There was a group of some 35 on the infield, and still there when I returned to the car after dark. Wondered what they might represent, possibly the hockey team.

Weightexercise workout 35:00 [1]

Back to the Y. Then to CH to visit Jenny T who wasn't back from imaging.

BOS meeting last night. Two MTBers attended. One stated they were "pro trail" and their group had spent 40 hrs on scouting a trail route in Nottingcook where none existed. They had no business getting that far along. The chair of the trail committee had asked a number of pointed questions which eventually halted their “progress”. A portion of the forest going from seldom visited to frequently visited is always an issue in multi-use situations. From my O point of view, their effort was most unwelcome in this particular area.

The Bow CC chair began the meeting with a presentation on developing natural resources inventories which called up Bear Brook and sensitive flora and fauna in terrain exclusion. All things considered.

Orienteering race 49:52 [3] 2.14 mi (23:18 / mi) +77m 20:58 / mi

UNO annual Dec meet & meeting at Beaver Brook. Pleasant day, low 40s. Did brown (2.7, 70m), blew #7. Had I not lost the path, it would have been trivial. Possibly 5’ there. Slow last leg from #8 in. But for the days of 10'/k or beating Sharon Crawford :-). I do like BB for locale (Ridge Rd approach appeal), attractive nature education center layout, terrain, path/woods options. UNO has been using it for years. It was nice to catch up some with peripatetic coach & Phil, closer to home, at Charlie's last night.

Meeting after, but I had to leave at 3p. JJ caught me outside regarding a Nottingcook meet for spring 2018. I was fine with that as 'assistant MD'.

Had to get to Bow for the December full moonrise which was in doubt as it was cloudy. But the moon humored me, being visible for about the time its diameter took to rise, be seen completely and then enter a cloud bank. It was labelled as a supermoon. I prefer the customary Cold Moon. That makes Oct., Nov & now December - trying for each full moonrise over the winter. Returning, who should I meet but BOS comrade Bob D., clearing trails with headlamp & leaf blower.
