AR Trek Event

Looking for CP5Once again, lack of snow turned a snowshoe/ski event into a winter orienteering run. The course was 11 control points, which took us about 90 minutes to finish. We nailed all but one checkpoint. On that one we stopped running to search about 200m from where we eventually found the checkpoint. I need to be more careful about tracking distance when I'm not feeling dialed in on the terrain association.

Temperature was chilly, but nothing like Friday and Saturday. It was about 4° F when we started. That was plenty warm for running but my hydration pack froze solid by the fourth checkpoint.

Hopefully we'll get a pile of snow this week. Last weeks storm totally missed us, maybe this one (which is supposed to miss us) will drop more than they expect.
