Soupbone must have been dreaming. He forgets the mosquito attacks at my Father-in-Law's cottage he stayed in when he visited us in Mänttä, Finland.

Nobody has screens in their windows.

Yes it’s been warm and very dry. That’s helps with the bugs.

Rudy the bike culture is so cool, peds and cars respect bikers.
Designated bikes lanes everywhere and I mean everywhere. Traffic lights for bikers too!
No bad traffic in the town either.

I agree that Kobenhavn is a pretty nice city. Biking around would be great. It is similar in Stockholm, and I think that city a bit more interesting because of the larger water bodies.
I would also recommend a visit to Uppsala, bike and bike lanes are everywhere, and when they end the roads are beautiful to ride on, and the drivers very respectful.
O-Ringen is in Uppsala in 2020, make plans!

Uppsala sounds good.
I think Stockholm is much bigger, while Copenhagen is easy to get around and Stockholm more sprawling. We were in a good location only 4K to downtown.
Different areas of the city were complete opposites aka Christiana. Interesting when we were there, the cops came crashing from three sides looking for someone or something, the music blaring was a song played that was an announcement that they were they there. Crazy, but no one was busted and I have seen that this is sort of frequent in the "free Town".

C final story

I went to WMOC ’06 in Austria, had just turned 60, was in good shape & hoped I might sneak into the A final. I had a few bad controls & ended up in C. Thru the internet, I’d met a keen orienteer from Budapest, a physicist named Ivan Lux (no relation). We’d communicated some. He was also an M60. Both expecting to do better, we both ended up in the C final. I was an early starter with a good run and was second most of the day. By the end of the competition, Ivan was second, I was 4th, less than a minute part. We lost touch but I look for his name now & then but don’t see it.

PG was 4th in the M60 A final.
