Walking (fieldwork) 5:00:00 
Finishing off the trapline - with a walk up Butchers and through the pines to get back to where I left off yesterday, 1 hour to check 50 traps along the ridge top, 1.5 hours to check the remaining 30 going down the arse end of the trap line, then 2.5 hours return up the river and down Orongorongo track (the less direct way because I couldn't be bothered with either option of going back over Cattle Ridge). Met 1 person just as I was getting started and 3 people in the last hour - felt so crowded!
Orienteering 13:05  *** 1.4 km (9:21 / km) +32m 8:23 / km

Onslow College - distance/climb assumes map was 1:2500 and contour interval 2m - definitely wasn't the quoted 3.7km! Could have done the waterfront 5k instead but thought this was the better option after 2 days knocking myself about a bit in the bush, because this way I could just take it easy and get some practice in. 'Taking it easy' lasted until I ended up going head-to-head with Kieran Edwards for most of the course, especially as once the moment we chose very different routes on the first real route choice leg, it was game on! Farted around a bit over the first 3 controls getting my head into the map (and into orienteering in general tbh) which is how Kieran caught me so quickly, but other than that, only fault was nearly getting caught in the dead end trap between 9 and 10. Have to admit to getting a bit of 'guidance' through the short legs 17-22 before the young fella finally started to open up the gap between us...
