4 PM

Snowshoeing (Ungroomed) 1:00:00 [2] 3.0 km (20:00 / km)
shoes: Salomon XA Pro GTX - Black

Chilly, deep powder snowshoe before dinner with 'Bent, our neighbour Darcie and the 3 largest dogs in the neighbourhood pack, including both of ours. We gave her two old pairs of ski boots and some chocolate croissants. She gave us fresh-baked challah, which has become a regular treat on Friday nights. I love winter.

Monday Feb 8 #


I spent a few hours sorting through the Orienteering Ontario archives since I'm hoping to park in our garage one of these winters.

One thing that has surprised us as we dig through the boxes is the huge pile of cartoons that were apparently required by provincial orienteering associations 30 years ago.

XC Skiing - Classic (Ungroomed) 2:30:00 [3] 15.0 km (6.0 kph) +407m

Spectacular, chilly day with perfect fluffy snow and a mix of sunshine and snow squalls. 'Bent and I went for a long ski to a high viewpoint where I got out the buttertart that I'd carried along for the occasion. It was so cold that I had to scarf it down quickly so we could start skiing down. We met Bruce and Val King skiing with Richard Ellen; they're all old friends of 'Bent's. We also met and chatted with a skier, John Fallis, and a couple of snowmobilers - Cavan (also a mountain biker) and his friend. It's been ages since I've spoken with so many humans in real life in a 2-hour period. Thank goodness for the great outdoors!
3 PM

Snowshoeing (Ungroomed) 1:00:00 [1] 3.32 km (18:05 / km) +206m 13:48 / km
shoes: Salomon XA Pro GTX - Black

Snowshoe outing with 'Bent, our neighbours Darcie and Marla, and 5 dogs. Shortly after we started, we saw a dog crossing a snowy field without an owner. Then we ran into neighbours we hadn't met before - Tom and Lisa - and they had met the owner looking for their dog. So we did some detective work as we hiked. We found tracks in a few places but didn't find the dog again. We learned tonight that the dog made her way home after dark. She'd been off-trail a couple of kilometres from home on a very cold day so that was great news.

XC Skiing - Classic (Ungroomed) 1:23:20 [3] 6.33 km (4.6 kph) +80m

Mrs. Gally just got classic skis so we went out for an easy ski on a very chilly morning.
7 PM

Snowshoeing (Ungroomed) 1:38:02 [2] 5.0 km (19:36 / km) +120m 17:30 / km
shoes: Salomon Snowcross 2 Unspiked

Night snowshoe in kilts with Goose, Coach LD and 'Bent to make up for our pandemic-missed Robbie Burns Dinner. Wonderful to catch up. The stars eventually came out so we could turn our headlamps off some of the time.
