Walking 1:14:49  2.23 mi (33:33 / mi) +36m 31:57 / mi
With Beth & W. Had not walked the dike before, she had. Long enough and certainly straight. The view
makes a difference - midway
and the last of it
Beth wasn't up for kayaking at Kimball and Bear Brook for my next O experience wasn't in the cards either. Fine fall day anyway one looks at it.
PT exercise (Yard work too) 50:00 
PT behind Memorial Bldg. Got quite windy, leaves falling in droves. Went outback at home to cut a long-leaning dead tree and found a large fallen branch right in the middle of things so cut it up. I love my battery-powered Dewalt chain saw. It's strong, clean and simple to start/use - after years of increasingly impossible gas saws.
Walking 59:20  1.07 mi (55:17 / mi) +19m 52:24 / mi
With W, about a mile, starting gps as an after thought; 2/3rds swamp or nearly, then high and dry on the ridge, and back across the swamp, losing direction, finally getting back to dry ground for good. Was close to BBR at one point - probably would have bailed out had I had a leash. The woods have become almost unrecognizable in 10 or so years. Hemlocks and white pine are thick where ever the canopy is thin or nonexistent.
Orienteering 1:06:31  1.38 mi (48:12 / mi) +55m 42:53 / mi
With Willow at Bear Brook with map & compass. Fine day, T to almost 70F. Worked in am, came home & got over to BB before nap time came to pass. Used walking stick in left hand and map & compass in right hand, thumb compass-like - which I never gravitated to in past. Started on a small path, covered by brush from the entrance to 50m in, then it faded and at same time an unmapped map ran by in front of me for a test. Used 3 close boulders and the X and got away from confusion. Spent an hour off trail, a lot of waist high vegetation. 3 ticks, 3 weeks. Today was brush immersion. One really must check. I do take 3 antibiotics daily though none is a doc for lyme prophylaxis.Bear Brook marsh
Walking 43:39  1.19 mi (36:41 / mi) +37m 33:27 / mi
, gray, muted colors, actually made dramatic in places by the otherwise drab day.
Conversation with my MGH ID speaking of indefinite antibiotics for the back infection not to mention the resultant bp exacerbation (4 antihypertensives for that) from one of them. 2020 a year to put behind and forget for so many reasons, both near and far.
Walking (Nordic walking) 1:00:35  1.63 mi (37:10 / mi) +67m 32:58 / mi
To Woodhill-Hooksett with Beth & W. Didn't get to drive in as far as I wanted but colors were fine right on the road. Mellow, overcast.
A roaring beast
one April day.
