sounds like many kms but not so interesting terrain?

Nice work! And that was even without vegemite!

84 km in total! That's a massive effort. Well done.

Well done!!!! :)

Wow - I've had almost a whole year's rogaining fix over this weekend with SA and WA exploits. Really enjoyed your story which seemed very much in control and putting you in a good trajectory for July.
Admire your decision about shoes - little toes get about half the pain I think.
Oh and happy birthday too - oh wise and resourceful one! (or my Eveready Bunny inspiration)

That's a huge day/night out! Well done!

Wow such a huge effort! Can't wait until I can try the same sort of distance!

Huge effort by Susanne (& Plaxy) on very little training - or sleep - over the past couple of months. I actually think Sus is the Eveready Bunny!

Terrain had enough complex/subtle bits to keep us on our toes; we probably lost about an hour to navigational errors so will want to tighten that up. Was nice that the course wasn't too big and interesting that it was a collaboration between about half-a-dozen first time setters; this meant the corners of the map were pretty well used and there were infinite permutations as to the order in which the controls might be collected (I spent far too long looking at other teams' Navlight splits last night when I should have been getting my beauty sleep).

Nice work. Look forward to seeing the map (I know Tyson has a link but it's to a site which is clearly considered subversive in China). A 6-hour in a few weeks will seem short...

Indeed. (I've spent longer than that trying to figure out whether there's any possibility of subverting the NSWRA entry system so that we don't have to come up with a team name in order to enter!)

Well done Jenny! Sounds like it went very much to plan, amazing effort.

Good writeup Jenny! And well done to you and Zed.
