Orienteering 1:15:00 [2] ****

Ken set a nice 6.1km course on Burnt Mtn which used some of the map that I've never been to before! There is a quarried area at the top of a mountain that is mapped (however not very acurately anymore.) Loki ran with me, but by the time I got up to this quarry area and was then heading back down, Kristoffer ran by (on a crossing loop thing) and Loki (I assumed at the time) ran off with him. So I headed down the mountain without him, but then kept thinking more and more - "what if Loki hadn't met up with Kristoffer and is instead fallen into a hole and can't get out, or got a stick through himself or something!" So I stopped at the next control to meet up with K and verify that he had the dog, and waited...and waited...and waited, probably for about 1/2 hr. Then started makign my way out back the trail and the car, hoping to intercept K as he ran the course behind me. Never saw him, so Ken and I (who I did meet up with!) ran back to the car and sure enough K and L were there waiting for US! (you can read K's run in his log. Nielsen
Great course, for what I ran of it (never got to the last 2 controls, but an hour run was plenty for me anyway.)
I get to set a course Thursday. Anyone else in the area want to come up?
