You did better in Europe than a lot of us!

Nice result! Other than day 1, it appears you orienteered consistently well, over a variety of terrains.

Thanks guys. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of terrain, with each day requiring figuring out how vegetation was mapped. The bulk of the competitors were English or Scottish with not many Scandinavians, so maybe not the toughest “European” field. Still some pretty fast guys out there.

Nice indeed. And the 6-day has its unique venues.

Takes me back 8 years to my own M65L Scottish 6 day event. Indeed satisfaction comes easier in Scotland than mainland Europe. I think I saw best finish of 11th and 16th for the 6 Days in a field >90.

I went to the O-Ringen just before, something like one day between the two. Log says 31st OA there, not sure how many runners.

Oh for the glory of being an early starter, "loitering" in the top 10, maybe even top 5, until the other runners come marching home...
