1 PM

Walking 1:14:18 [2] 2.29 mi (32:27 / mi)

From end of WH road with Willow - one way, picked up the car later.
Stopped to see if this marker was still present after some 6 years.

Drive to Henniker later, Colby Hill and Liberty Hill roads were new and interesting. Maps mislead and we found ourselves right in front of a rural farmhouse at the dead-end top of the hill.

Walking 1:03:14 [1] 1.41 mi (44:51 / mi) +20m 42:57 / mi

With W toward end of day. Spent at least 5' sitting in car trying to figure out where I wanted to go. Settled on 'out back'. Warm, pleasant as could be. Walked an old find-again, lose again-path for the fun of it.

Listened to Moth Radio some of the time: a woman driving a supply delivery truck to Prudhoe Bay in AK and a 24 y/o in prison who finally took a stand over a bag of pretzels, both very good.

No poles.

...what we call 'invasives.' Whether vegetation, animals, pathogens, or humans. And usually caused by the careless hand of mankind....

Amen to inclusion of 'humans' - we are the ultimate weed/invasive. Round us up! Population control is a start. Good luck in that regard.
11 AM

Walking 1:17:00 [1] 2.5 mi (30:48 / mi) +89m 27:44 / mi

From SPS boathouse with W. Got surprise call from RG and talked the phone out of power about halfway thru. Continued up to dam & field and back on Dunbarton Rd. Call it 2.5 mi. No poles.

Orienteering 1:28:29 [2] 1.99 mi (44:28 / mi) +55m 40:57 / mi

With W from BBR end of WH. Passed the refuse areas and then up into woods. Found a new trail on the forest boundary. Who ever knew the boundary existed, surprise - what 10 plus years can accomplish. Map & compass, no poles, balance pretty good.

Not quite a bridge to nowhere but did not have time to find either start or end. A journey for another time.

Had to throw out a lot of "junk' in my 16g i phone storage to be able to reload Strava. I haven't used my Garmin watch in maybe 2 years. Could not find the charger for it today.

Walking 50:00 [1] 1.5 mi (33:20 / mi)

Easement walk with Eric T - Lindquist land by Dow & 3A. Mostly backyard, rebar or small pipes for boundary markers - found 6/8, front and center with the backs of private homes. Compass was very helpful. If we were noticed, no one challenged us. Gray, about 50F. I was last there 11/18/2014.

Strava won't reload - too little space, I think, on the phone.

Walking 25:00 [1]

Power line & close by with W. Got above the sand pit which is looking pretty big, even interesting, if one has an eye for such things.

3 PM

Walking 50:22 [1] 1.23 mi (40:58 / mi) +78m 34:13 / mi

With Beth & W. Gray, quiet somber November - rain due but not yet. Went to DD first as usual - treat was two glazed sticks. Dark at 4:45 now. Came home to find the second chipmunk in the Hav-a-hart - took it to the brush dump to a mammoth pile of shelter, if not home.
