First terrain run of the year at our first Nomads training. Thanks Craig for setting the course. Long legs to big features, mostly just getting a bit of a feel for terrain again and some rough nav work. Mine was very rough. Stopped on the wrong knoll at 3, made a total hash of 4, looping around the knoll and coming down the far side at totally the wrong angle, then changing my route choice to one with no attack point on the way to 8, ending up too high, and not wanting to correct, even though I could see the control feature further down the hill.
Ah well, much improvement to come, I hope. Felt better in terrain that I thought I would, though caught my toe and stumbled/fell a few times. Shoes are comfortable, but a little roomy. The downside is this is the first time I have actually worn them, and one of the lace loops broke when I was doing them up before I had even started. Grr.
Ran more or less with tRicky and Oscar, trying route comparison a couple of times and having a chat about each leg in breaks at the controls.
Hard to pick the detail off a 1:15 000 map after so long.
