Scorpions and now wild boars? Spanish orienteering is dangerous. Not to mention the Jalla.

Wow. Glad you're safe.

Thanks. Glad to be safe also.

When we lived in Germany, we used to joke how an infantry platoon would face down a tank and hope to take it out, but would flee in the face of the wild boars. And you kept your head to find the next control!

Yea, looking back on it I'm not sure what went through my head to be honest. I suppose I assimilated it as just another obstacle in the course. Perhaps I should have been more scared, but he only gave about 20 meters of charge before he decided I wasn't a threat.

Good training. I'll try to arrange more wild boar in the future for more 'race focus' simulation.

Cool, I'll take wolves also if you can find any.
