Up at 5am. Left the house at 5:30 and arrived around 8:30. Coming in from New York and part of the trip is a 12 minute ferry ride across Lake Champlain. Stopped at a McDonalds near the club to put on my rain pants, boots and too freshen up.
A wet, cool day. Down to an on and off drizzle when I arrived and after 5 or 6 stations I took off my rain jacket. I didn't have any slippage (mud) issues when walking this mountainous course.
