Orienteering race 1:47:23 [4] **** 5.9 km (18:12 / km) +260m 14:55 / km
spiked:9/15c slept:8.0

Beuatiful weather for race start though it was a 1.5 km walk. Started out good taking my time to CP1. Cross country to CP 2 was not an issue. Across stream and up deep valley to CP3 was not and issue. CP3 was interesrting in that it was in a very small ditch, 10", on a ridge yet marked on the map. Lost it going to CP 4. Got distracted by another course's control and ended to far to the east. Relocated using a rootstock after seeing DR, who started 4 minutes behind me. Decide to kitty corner to road and trail to CP5 which went well until I got in the neighbourhood of the control. Decide on taking a bad route choice and had trouble staying in cotact with the map. Got all turned around at one point and decided my compass was wrong. Took out my back up and sure enough, they both pointed in the same direction. Bailed to the trail, ran to the intersection and took a slow bearing to the control but the damage was done. Down the vallet and across a dried creek to CP6 was easy. Cross country to a road and took a bearing to CP7 but travelled by contour and crossed to the saddle when close. Angled out to the trail for the attack of CP8. Used broasd spur and roorstocks as an attack feature and small ditch to lead the ditch and the control. Straight up the ridge from 8 towards CP9 but made a mistake here. Attcked control from the trail aimimg for a slight creek junction. However, missed the junction and got off line. Ended up bailing to nearby road and attacking from a series of rootstocks to hit the control. Too many mistakes at this point.
Took it easy to CP 10 and spiked it. Start to see other racers going to similar controls and hit 11 & 12. Ran across a stream bed to a trail and down to the river crossing. Bridge marked on map but it was just a rope for balance. JT was encouraging at this point. CP 14 was on small trail leading up the trail to 15 and the finish. After punching out check map so as not to miss a control as in the sprint but was fine.

Not bad race but too many lesser mistakes but considering other factors a reasonable weekend.


All the Lost Boys were finished by 12 pm. We retrieved our maps and hit the road at 12:30, stopping for a bite to eat at Quizno's in Leesburg. Continued north to Fredick. On I-70 headed northwest, stopping at the Warford road side rest, just in Pennsylannia. Next I-70 to Breezewood and 30 to I-99 past Altoona. There was a bit of discussion on route choice here. The fast route was longer, I-70 to I-76 to Erie and I-90 to Fort Erie, 360 miles from Warford. It was decided to take the shorter but slower route, I-99 north to 350 through Philipsburg to 320. Joining I-80, this was run for about 20 miles brfore veering north on 153 to 255 to St. Mary and 219 to Bradford and crossing into New York, near Salamanco and Allegheny State Park. North on 219 through Ellicottville, we veered on to I-90 just before Orchard Park. Straight through the border at Fort Eirie, we stop to eat at Niagara Stone Road and arrived in Mississauga at 11:20 pm. It appeared that it was 6 hours either way. The cross country was slow with speeds of 40 mph, difficult navigation but no problems. Whether the Interstate was faster is an item for future investigations.
