Mapping 29:59 
A little more mapping at Swallow Union, mostly putting in distinct trees. Still with the regular pencil, although later on I remembered where I stashed my bag of fieldchecking pencils in the trunk of the car after I was done mapping in Wisconsin.

Lane-Horse-... oops. In The Dark. Wore the GPS gizmo that Valerie loaned to me, and planned to map out the normal loop. Decided to leave the light turned off as long as I could see where I was going, and it became clear when that was because as I was ducking between two trees, a branch I hadn't seen caught me right in the forehead. No harm done, but it pushed the hatlamp back momentarily so that the switch hit my forehead and turned it on. Okay, I get the message...
Navigated through the laurel jungle okay, but when I left the horse trail, I did something wrong, and found myself facing a bunch of laurel (and I didn't feel like I had climbed enough). Made sure I stayed to the left and tried to work around it, but eventually I saw the lights of houses, and realized I must be near Tyler Rd. OK, well, time to bail out and go back the way I came. Started doing that, but at this point I had no idea where I was. Found what looked ike an old cart path and followed that, but eventually decided it was imaginary. Kept going, running through a surprisingly long stretch of nice white woods, until I wondered if I were going in circles, and decided to do something to make sure I wasn't. Going downhill/downstream will always get you out, so I did that. Well, actually, it will get you to a swamp, but things are pretty dry this time of year. Pushed though a little bit of thick stuff, and hit a trail, which I quickly recognized as one of the Hickory Hills trails, based on the (new) wooden bridges. And home from there.
I did install the GPS software and managed to download the data, but it was unsatisfying for three reasons:
#1: I didn't go where I had planned.
#2: The map that the software comes with is pretty bogus, just showing where I went in relation to major roads. I think Valerie said there's some website that works better for this, and I'm sure she'll tell me what it is as soon as she reads this.
#3: Not many points recorded. The GPS thing beeped at me from time to time, which I imagine probably translates to, "Yo, where are the satellites? I don't know where I am!". Anyway, in over an hour of running, it appears to have recorded about 35 points. There was another run in memory from a few monhs ago that looked pretty similar. Might be too much forest down where I run. On the other hand, there's a track left in memory from Valerie that seems to have a whole lot more points recorded. But that appears to have been a hike, 12 km in about 5 hours, so I suppose maybe it was recording points at the same time rate(?). Poked around the menus and didn't see anything about changing the recording rate. Maybe I should RTFM...
