My Actifit Report Card: February 3 2020 - A Snowy First Hike for Feb.

in actifit •  6 months ago 

It was a snowy hike for the first one this February. I had picked up a new 5.11, 72 hour backpack for the field and wanted to give it a go.

I needed to load up this new backpack so I tossed in about 20Kg (40lbs) for that purpose. I was looking to knock of 10K in the morning. The weather outlook was calling for light snow, 1 - 2cm (1 inch or less) and it was hovering between -4C and 0C ( 25F and 32F).

I wanted to keep my pace up (10 minutes a Km - loaded) for this ruck and it didn't appear that the snow was going to play into slowing me down much as it was...

But things do change. I wish I had my GoPro going as half way through my hike the weather shifted and the snow picked up. I added a saftey strobe light to my pack (already had the refelctive saftey vest on my pack) to warn drivers. Visibilty was diminished but still OK, not much wind, thankfully.

I finished the hike without any issues, other than the snow accumulation. By the time I reached back home we had a good 5-10cm (2-4inch) in places. Even with the accumulation I was able to manage my pace.

All in all I was back in an hour and 45 minutes, a little bit snow covered but feeling good. The backpack handled flawlessly and I bearly felt it. Once I stripped out of my gear it was right to the stove to cook up a hearty breakfast for me and the family (some of them were still sleeping!)

Oh yeah, that went down nicely. Anyhow, stay active and stay fit.

Looking great!! The food made me a bit hungry, that's exactly how we like our breakfast also.

Ya, nothing like the smell of bacon and coffee... especially after a nice hike.
