Run 1:15:10 intensity: (20 @0) + (9:25 @1) + (42:58 @2) + (22:27 @3) 7.78 km (9:40 / km) +191m 8:36 / km
ahr:136 max:150 shoes: Arctic Claw 300

Checking trails at Gunstock - Kale made some adjustments to Moose up and over the mega-spur for the Fall Flurry race - nicer switchbacks than straight up the hill. A few trees down across some of my snowshoe maze trails - some handsaw and come-along work to reopen those for winter.
3 PM

Mapping 1:39:08 [0] 5.04 km (19:41 / km) +79m 18:15 / km

Back to Weeks Woods - checking the next plot over to the NE from the SPNHF section - a mix of skidder rows, logged and thinned out areas. "Distinct" vegetation boundaries are indistinct in many places, as is the transition from rough open to rough open with scattered trees.
Need to check clarity at 1:10 and see how I can simplify the view. Need to have a more visible yellow than what my printer's spitting out now so I can take out some of the veg boundary dotted lines.

Run / hike hills 57:14 intensity: (1:31 @0) + (7:49 @1) + (47:06 @2) + (48 @3) 4.6 km (12:27 / km) +490m 8:07 / km
ahr:131 max:143 shoes: Arctic Claw 300

Pre-turkey time outing. Gilford Elementary, up the Benjamin Weeks trail to the Ridge trail to the summit of Gunstock. Much chillier up top than at the bottom, with some breeze coming across the ridge. Blowing snow up top - had to warm up my phone to keep it from turning off as I snapped a few pictures.
A dog and his human appeared just as I was ready to head back down - they'd come up the Overlook trail.

Run 41:45 intensity: (1:13 @0) + (13:34 @1) + (23:19 @2) + (3:39 @3) 5.07 km (8:14 / km) +133m 7:17 / km
ahr:130 max:150 shoes: Arctic Claw 300

And the run down. Nothing like a nice downhill run once properly warmed up to make an old guy feel likes there's still some speed in the legs.
Saw another couple shortly before the flats near the top of the Tiger lift.

One face plant when bottom of my shoe snagged on a rock, glad I had on gloves. Downhill face plants tend to be more dramatic than uphill ones - more speed and a larger angle to rotate the upper body through before contact is made with the ground. Minor scrape on the forearms, gloves kept my palms from being embedded with gravel.

Mapping 1:40:21 [3] 4.01 km (25:02 / km) +44m 23:44 / km

Late afternoon session at Weeks Woods - enough light to walk/trace some of the logged areas on the E side and note a few boulders interspersed.

Ready to head back to the car and reach down to check my phone - and there's empty space in the holster where the phone should be. Did I leave it in the car? No, I remember it buzzing when an email came in at some point. Sign, start to back track in the fading light, pull out my headlamp (which I had with me for the first time other than for a known after-dark run). Be-bopping thought the woods, crawling over slash, checking out wet spots. About to give up and make plans to head to the Verizon store in the morning, when I spot a dark, regular-shaped object - yay!!!
