Back from Falmouth, tired and out of time. However, W needed appeasement as did we - and we found it on a still May evening as the sun was dropping below tree line.

Walking 6:58 [1] 0.27 mi (25:46 / mi)

Getting a good walk in the Falmouth area was not easy given more rain than I/we cared for but seeing Woods Hole, Quissett harbor, Vineyard Sound, Nobska light, Falmouth RR stretches and pondering 40 year old memories was fun.

Pristine May Day for a walk-around. The beaver dam seems to get longer every year and more work to cross.

Orienteering race (Gunstock Kid Goat) 2:04:42 [3] 3.95 mi (31:34 / mi) +220m 26:55 / mi

Gunstock 45th BG and tandem Kid which is what I had enthusiasm for. 5.7k, 170m climb, 14 flags, one skip, 1/75 scale.

Good weather for it, energy was ok, just too little strength, I guess, is the way I'd put it. Well down, but lots of youthful energy working in tandem. I was alone alot though Janet T kept appearing/reappearing even tho we by and large went different ways. Janet (and Nancy) both moved readily faster.

1. Followed the "crew" pretty straightforward.
2. Skip - straight uphill...these days causes an allergic reaction:)
3. Now alone - picked my way across the hills/ski runs to the Panorama lift, then "gently" up. Was a contour and a half high mainly because of a distaste for entering the woods at the appropriate level which I think I had surmised correctly. At that point, there was a young couple (maybe the leaders?) moving ahead briskly.
4. A group of 3 CRLS orienteers and Nancy K passed and were right ahead,
they'd gone high. I followed them down some, getting worried we might be descending from the flag but it showed up in time...
5. Descend and move to the right to the open ski run. Wyatt Riley passed around here, the first BGer I saw.
6. Picked my way along the trails, saw Janet coming out from it.
7. Took a left route, finally to trails. Janet came in just ahead from a 180 deg direction.
8. Pretty much went straight, but avoiding as much climb and rock as I could. Came from the path heading due north. Another hard-enough climb, and lo, as I got to the top, there was the flag on the rootstock. Janet was looking for the flag as I'd progressed say 70m toward the next one.
9. Just sort out paths to flag. Joe Brautigam, another BG'er, went by.
10-12. three get-your-feet wet flags, deciding which side of the stream to be on, when to cross. Saw Janet at 12, we were abut together. Just before, we both had a wet, wet stream crossing. I think she fell. Don't know why I didn't on the 5 crossings in these three flags. I do feel balance-challenged since 2020 back surgery
13. We left 12 together, Janet moved ahead over the first third. She punched 13 a bit ahead. Then I didn't see her again. The leg was about sorting out paths.
14. More path sorting. Vlad G (on BG) passed.
to F - went straight, sorting out rockiness. Done!

Very little time lost looking, progressing perhaps in second gear when third, even forth some of the legs was recommended...

Talked some with CRLS O team kids. One knew my step-son who teaches ASL there.

Fun to be back at Gunstock. Nice map and meet organization UNO. Thanks for your hard work! (and in particular Jim Arsenault)
