Running (Street & Trail) 40:25 [3] 2.6 mi (15:33 / mi) +42m 14:48 / mi

Bloomington, MN. From American Blvd. E., down to the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge on a gravel Road to the first side trail on the left that overlooked the Minnesota River, then back. An ice storm had hit the area. Leaving the hotel was slippery and getting to the trailhead was worse. Once on the gravel road, I had to run and walk on the sides where the icy hard packed snow was still crunchy enough to keep me from sliding. I punched holes in it most of the way, and then again on the way back, whenever my steps didn't match up. One day, I hope to do the loop to Cedar Ln.--satellite photos show it's possible now since a bridge had been added. We had a nice trip visiting Peggy's family and sharing Christmas with them.

Running (Street & Trail) 18:52 [3] 2.14 mi (8:49 / mi) +6m 8:45 / mi

Bloomington, MN. From American Blvd. E., Old Shakopee Rd., to 28th Ave. S, to Lindau Ln. to 33 Ave. S., to American Blvd. E. I wasn't sure how cold it would feel, and whether or not the old icy snow would be a problem. I stuck to sidewalks which were generally well cleaned off and dry. I was a little windy and around 29 F.

Orienteering (Field Checking) 3:30:48 [1] 4.14 mi (50:55 / mi) +76m 48:09 / mi
slept:8.25 weight:193lbs

Serpentine Barrens Conservation Park, MD. I mostly went over ground that I'd been over previously. This time I focused on vegetation close to the Greenbriar Branch (stream). My aim was to show the good ways through the often dense stands of greenbriar along the creek (most of this park is very open). I had to rely a lot on GPS but my mapping from visual imagery sometimes did help me know where I was so that I could make proper notes. I found a few more boulders, ditches, and rootstocks. The alignment of magnetic north seemed close enough to be within a margin of error. For now, I don't think I need to make an adjustment but will reserve a final decision on this until later. There was a truck and something like a bulldozer in the power lines. I found fresh cuts of the juniper tree that'd grown up. I'd mapped the dense stands mostly from imagery. The slash is being left on the ground so I'm not sure how I'll remap them yet. Overall, it's a good thing that these young trees be cut, but the power line rough open areas tend to have thorns and they might grow up the fastest once the junipers are gone. There is a road in the power lines so travel along the lines is untroublesome once one reaches it.
