Is a shithole, but a nice shithole. Sounds like you are in the same accommodation as we were for WOC'09 which is nice, unlike the rundown metal hospital we were in for JWOC'01.
14km in those forests will be done fast as, have fun.
Yea I know what you mean haha. Especially coming from Switzerland where everything is fancy as. the Uni still has bars on all lower windows though...
Had a first wee look at the forest today, should be fun, maybe bit more running than navigating in the log though.
