Good to have a sense of humor in these times.

Bit of a history of orienteering and politically significant walls - the arena for the long distance at JWOC 1991 in Berlin was on the cleared strip from which the Berlin Wall had recently disappeared. (I was rather hoping to have a control, "ruined wall, east side", but had to settle for an abandoned watchtower).

At the risk of pulling something in which belongs in the ISOM thread, the previous map of the area marked the Berlin Wall as an uncrossable fence, with out-of-bounds on the east side.

Hope you're doing okay. All right? Seriously, I'm worried about you, man.

So have you heard DT explain why we will not build a wall along the Rio Grande even though it is mostly dry and does not stop anyone crossing?

We are going to drain the swamp of Egypt and capture 100,000 Nile Crocodiles, and release them in the Rio Grande. Egypt will pay us to take their crocodiles. They will be HUGE crocodiles. They will not hurt ranchers or neighbors outside the river. We will put collars on them and put up invisible fences to keep them in the river. It will not cost anything to feed them because they will eat all the aliens who try to cross. This will be HUGE.

Trump makes a great target for humor. But he will pick smart advisers and let them run the country, and history will remember him as a great president.

Careful guys.
There are orienteers, and potential orienteers, on both sides of the political divide.

Hmm, my post was nothing more than a legitimate course using the Moreau map. Though I admit that since we are a small club with few new members, it would have been hard to find volunteers to stand on the retaining wall along Spier Falls Road - and how would I explain it to them?

I see, Moreau is indeed a depressing place, I now understand the cause of your blues.
On the other hand, I went over the weekend to DC area for some ungodly orienteering. Beautiful fall colors, gorgeous forest,
and the whole area is noticeably less swampy! My feet remained dry for the whole 17 km of the course!
