West Point Day 1 - Long Mountain East.
Very nice terrain - good visibility. A bit too many blueberry bushes underfoot in a few sections...

Course setter made good use of the terrain - climb was tolerable.

Measured the distance 3 times - I got it as 6.65 Km rather than the advertised 6.27

Run 29:00 [2] 3.3 km (8:47 / km) +75m 7:53 / km
shoes: Nike Air Assail Trail

Checking out the newly cut ski trails at Gunstock. A lot of slash still to be cleared. Going to be some interesting options for ski-o next season.

The original Cobble loop trail by the stream took a bit of a beating during the heavy rain. The stream cut a bit more from where it started undercutting last year - will probably need some fill for the groomer to make it by next winter.

Much of the trail was at the peak for mud season fineness - not matter where you stepped, or how lightly, your shoes were going to get covered. I'm really suprised I didn't lose a shoe in the muck.

Kayaking 50:00 [2]

Winnisquam - Put in at Ahern and headed up to the north end of the lake. There was still ice just before the islands, so played around in the edges of it for a bit. It was about 2" thick, highly honey-combed. The wave action along the edges was breaking it up pretty good, Didn't see any polar bears.

Did see a few loons, some from fairly up close. The air temp was pretty warm, 60s or 70s, but the water was still pretty chilly. Spent a few minutes tihinking about "if I tip over, will I be able to make it to shore before hypothermia does me in, or would that be it." Since I didn't go over, I guess this will remain a purely theoretical discussion for now.

Orienteering race 1:13:15 [4] *** 7.2 km (10:10 / km) +141m 9:16 / km
spiked:9/14c shoes: VJ Spikes 1

Local meet - College Woods. Course by Faye Doria, nicely done, especially considering the foot bridge below the dam was discovered to be gone only a couple of days prior to the event.
A few minor bobbles, generally good navigation, but not much speed.

Enjoyed the day and the temps in the low 70s.
