I assume from the comments that the walk was associated with golf. You need to keep in mind Mark Twain's saying about golf, "a good walk spoilt." Although I prefer the other comment attributed to him that "golf is a game of expletives not deleted."

A bit like orienteering.

I see the similarity in that in each you aim for a mistake free race or round- and it very rarely happens. And one you make a mistake and start trying to recover, it goes from bad to worse with very little effort.

A bit like life in general?

No, golf is much more extreme. Today I went from par to quintuple bogey in the space of one hole.

Hey, at least you found the hole.

Yes, it was the golfing equivalent of your infamous first control at Mozzy Ck.

I gave up golf to focus on MTBO and adventure racing and because golf was bad for my knees, which surprisingly the other two weren't.

Interesting, plausible, but I suspect unusual. The questions for me are social life and back. Its good for the former, unsure about the impact on latter. I hear conflicting opinions. It certainly is good for my humility. I know my task is to give the colleagues a regular laugh at my expense. Their handicaps vary from 10 to 25. I am not at the point where a handicap makes any sense at all.
