manual labor 1:00:00 [1]

Second work day at camp. Hauled a bunch of junk out of a basement for disposal or to move to other storage (cans of paint, bikes, shelving, wood) and then cleaned a storage room and kitchen in a pavilion (tons of old stuff not touched for years and largely ruined by mice, including old pup tents and sports and cooking equipment). Sorry to see how some things were not cared for and the current property manager knows little about the place or even GS camping in general. He kept asking what things were, where they went, or what they were used for.

orienteering race 1:47:18 [4] *** 5.8 km (18:30 / km) +160m 16:15 / km
11c shoes: Inov8 O-roc 280 Red

QOC Quinquagenary - Hangman Tree - F35+ (Green Y)

Out of start, down trail to bend, hit hilltop at black x and adjusted, then came down a bit left of control 1 but saw it. Straightish line to 2, thought I was passing through saddle but apparently it was the next reentrant over. Still came down close enough to control on other side.

Loooooong leg to 3. Long legs are my nemesis, especially this type with basically no trails anywhere. Picked my way across connecting ditches and streams, found trail with green dot at the end (but, like many, saw nothing in terrain for that big green perfectly round dot to be representing...) and cleared area with veg boundary. At next stream, took a moment to make sure I was in the right place, found decent attack point, over the hill into control.

Down reentrant to stream and then up to 4. Pretty much straight lining it on these next few controls, even 5 to 6 through the darkish green (which was just saplings, easy to pass through).

Next loooooong leg 7 to 8, but at least there was the power line as a catching feature behind 8 and I ended up needing that. This time I lost track of where I was and just kept moving NE. Actually passed very close to 8 while thinking I was in the vicinity, but missed it and went to relocate on power line. First mistook which reentrant I was in, but saw some rootstocks which allowed me to correct and find the control.

Now my brain was tired. First ran into control in a reentrant before 9, then was drawn off to see the other control near rock pile on the way to 10. Out to 11 and down to the finish.
