FR=6.557km, 282m climb -- no wonder it felt like a Green course
Brown Long on Turkey Mountain map, from Camp Shea on Mine Torne Rd. Happy with my navigation for the most part except close to controls (1, 2, 5, 8, 9). Kept close of track of where I was in the two long legs (just messed up in/near the circle). Sloppy route choice to 6 and 7 but found them okay. A long day and tired legs now. Good to see everyone!
Stopped for Frappuccinos and a rest, then later for beer and sandwiches at Keegan Ale in Kingston. Detoured to Ravena to check out a park (Joralemon Town Park
) Jim H told me about at today's start with an extensive frisbee golf course and neat wildflowers. Nice setting with lots of limestone outcrops, so if you're into that, and near Albany, it's a neat place (even though it says "town residents and guests only" ... they probably don't check if it's not really busy, especially if you're not using the pavilion, though out-of-state license plates might be suspect).
And ended with ice cream cones from Friendly's. Back to the real diet tomorrow. :-)
