|Rob setting up the course.|
We organized a trail-based event designed to develop and test each other's distance estimation skills. Recent weather conditions resulted in a trail surface that was mostly ice, so added metal traction underfoot was essential for efficiency and safety. The attendees traveled from as far away as Cape Cod to spend a few hours on the trails with us in 20 degree temps and 20 mph winds. The harsh conditions dictated that only the hardcore would show up.
