Walking 30:00  1.5 mi (20:00 / mi)
Tough day in the office in terms of setup/tear down. Had to schlep all of the equipment and with the unexpected rain, it was not a light load. About 1/4 mile round trip x 8 (or more), pushing a hand cart loaded with stuff. Also, up to the Finish cross country to try to get a radio back to the event center, with not much success, until they moved the Finish to the "correct" location, and then all of the data started coming in.
Back out after to recover the two repeaters, with a general idea where the first one was, and absolutely no confidence that I could find the second one again. Luckily, I had orange tape on the pole, so I kept scanning the upper tree line, and I also must gravitate to the same area - spotted without too much effort. Thank goodness, because I was starting to contemplate whether I could let it stay out there forever or not, or whether I would spend many hours looking for it in vain. Also, I did not want to have to tell PH my sad story on the lost repeater. Need to have the Garmin on in the future and take a waypoint, so at least I have a fighting change. Serious amount of paw paw in the area. Still shocked I found it.
A good day, all in all. Nearly 200 starts, even the Daisy groups who wanted to know if they could get a refund because of the rain. Rain stopped early on, and there were only a few no-shows. Only thing missing was a rainbow. :)
