Four Mile Circle - Local event Green course. There was still 6-8" of snow in the woods which made the normally docile Pine Barrens terrain much more physical. This was a good conditioning run (which I sorely need right now). My navigation was pretty clean except for 6 where I was a bit too far left after crossing the road and lost maybe a minute or so circling back to the control. A fun start to the season.

Fair Hill NRMA - Had to check a Blue/Red control I tweaked and of course it was probably the furthest one from a parking area. About 3" of snow in the fields and 6" or more still in the woods. On the return I flagged down a farmer to alert him that there was a breech in the dam around his pond beneath the outlet pipe. It flows into a small stream which all of my courses have to cross. I am having visions of it letting loose during the event. Canoe-O anyone?
