11 April 2011

I went for another La Framboise Island circumnavigation after my run this afternoon. The high temperature was 65 degrees with no wind. A perfect day for paddling.

This time I obtained results from the Endomondo app on my phone that more closely matches previous data from my gps. I am not sure what happened the last time, but it was only off about 0.1. The route should should be between 5.7 and 5.8 miles and I only trust gps accuracy (my phone or my garmin handheld) to a tenth of a mile. The first circumnavigation with the app resulted in 5.9 and tonight was 5.7 (rounded).

  1. Looks like some great paddling weather there! I've only been out once so far this spring, in Cook Inlet. Amazing being in the salt, but I do miss the mighty Mo!
