Hiking (Uphill) 31:23 [2] 1.84 km (17:06 / km) +156m 12:00 / km
slept:7.5 shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 2

Hiked from Spier Falls Rd parking area to meeting place for team training weekend exercises. Alex was there along with several US team members plus the Owens family from VT.

FR tracks added
12 PM

Orienteering (control pick) 1:06:38 [3] 3.91 km (17:03 / km) +93m 15:14 / km
spiked:9/12c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3

Training on the plateau at Moreau, thanks to Alex and Ali and everyone else who helped set this up. I did the first 12 controls on the control-pick exercise, then headed back to the start. I probably should have worked on improving memorization with the partner exercise, but we had limited time and both Glen and I wanted to do this one.

Edit: Updated # controls. No relocation needed (except on the way from 12 to the start), but I counted as non-spikes those where I was in the circle but not finding the streamer or mini control right away but having to look around a bit. At 2, for example, I saw the cliff rather than the rocky knoll in the map circle, and had to look at the description to confirm what I was actually looking for (d'oh--the cliff was a control location I convinced Glen not to use in the A meet). That said, I wasn't far off on any of the ones I didn't get right away. Very fun.
2 PM

Hiking (Downhill) 42:10 [1] 1.82 km (23:07 / km) +71m 19:21 / km
shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 2

Hiked back to the car, taking the staircase of death (as Glen calls it)/blue trail to the 'amphitheater' and then the white trail to the yellow trail and back to the parking lot at Spier Falls Rd. Somehow Glen's watch measured both hikes closer to 2 km than 1.83, but I log what mine says. :-) Quads got a workout; some of those descents were pretty tricky (muddy and steep).

Despite bug spray, there were plenty of voracious mosquitoes around if you were going slowly enough...we killed our share. Bug spray recommended.
