Walking 45:00 [2]

Went to NH Audubon w/ W. - hadn't been there since fall. Trails well-packed, didn't need the SS I was wearing. Surprised how much use occurred this morning - the day began with several inches of fresh, untracked snow. We saw 6 people just returning to parking but none while on our loop. A cold NW wind was coming off Turkey when we were on its shoreline and it was good to finally be able to turn away. Forgot the 310.

Walking 30:00 [1]

BHS walk, light, dry snow all day, and still snowing. We walked on Turee out to a bob house. Hadn't walked on it in years - couldn't entirely trust it after falling in up to my waist some 8 yrs ago. Around 5, it was snowing steadily, Currier & Ives wintry. Only people we saw were a father and his maybe 3 y/o son on a snowmobile, proceeding sensibly. I wasn't expecting anyone, W was free, and she thought saying 'hi' to SM occupants was the order-of-the-day.

Walking 39:00 [2] 1.1 mi (35:28 / mi) +50m 31:04 / mi

Great Hill with W. Gray day and world. Still ice on branches. Got to top which we had to ourselves for about 10' - then a group of 3 adults, 5 kids arrived.
Hard crust, SM tracks helped a lot for more even ground walking. Ecstatic

Walking 1:06:57 [2] 2.1 mi (31:51 / mi) +81m 28:27 / mi

Nottingcook with W - cold, bright blue and white. Crusty surface, quite a few foot prints. Didn't see anyone though. Lost W's leash. Not interested in going back.

Snow shovelling 45:00 [2]

Pretty honest effort at clearing thin ice, later slush from walks and driveway. If allowed to remain, then 75+'ers beware. Not a weather-kindly day, nothing to write home about, as in "come see us in enticing NH." To be fair, ice on branches had appeal. No snow each of the two recently predicted snowfalls. Harks to 'full pay for being right half the time'.

Obligations weighed me down today - most likely better tomorrow when we, W and me, will get out for something that should be "attackpointable".

Orienteering 40:00 [2]

O walk at Bear Brook on way back from boat which I hadn't seen in 45 days (12/31) to my surprise. Lots of MTB trail (think same one) I kept crossing. Snow was not really deep. Didn't have gaiters. 16 vehicles in parking. Had a nice conversation with a MTBer around my age, he leaning against a tree on a trail in the "middle" of the woods - I wondering if this MTB trail was also the mapped one I was looking for - but no blazes noted.
