Troll Cup Day 1 Brown X. Mostly fine until a disaster on #4. Perhaps the magnifier would have helped. A steep climb up and I had myself convinced it would be in the reentrant facing NE, and kept looking for it there and near there in other reentrants NE, until reluctantly peeking in the one to the SW, where it had been all the while. Confused a bit my the form line, a bit more by the fogged glasses, but most of all by the inability to change my mind about something. Anyway, somewhat discouraged after dropping 5 minutes mostly standing in place and proceeded to screw up the next one at least another 3 minutes worth, and a little wobbly getting to 6 as well. Otherwise fine, and my feelings a bit assuaged by being first in M-70, a few minutes up on the surprising Rich N and Nellie in 2nd and 3rd.

A spin around the most recent night-o course. Ribbons are out on it for the unofficial southern model event for the Troll Cup. Leslie was out on the course and I visited with her for a bit between 10 and 11. She was doing more important work, having picked up a mylar balloon along the way.

Great day for a ride. Almost bit off too much. I will need to get my back adapted to this activity, as it was pretty darned sore the last 3 miles. We leave for Croatia in 5 weeks. Time to buckle down.

West Point Day 2 at Lake Welch. Pretty good run for me these days. Only one noteworthy mistake at #4 where I was a line too high and went by it, then when I knew I was too far I looked back and saw it. That was a hard enough control that it seems like everybody missed it, so AP didn't even notice the error. I was feeling pretty smug at the finish, thinking I had a good time, but Rick Worner beat me by about 30 or 40 seconds. Still enough for first M-70 for the two days, so successful orienteering.
1. Very slow through laurel and blueberry, but reading the hills on top and the green patches along the side and came right to it.
2, Easy, down to the marsh and along it, across to the hill.
3. Also easy. Could see the rocky spur before the reentrant from a distance.
4. Left of the big rocky outcrop and angled down. Saw a change in the slope and I thought it would be just above that, but didn't see it until I had gone by and looked back and down a line. About a 1 minute loss.
5. Uneventful, on compass and reading countours.
6. ditto.
7. More or less the same, looking for the dot knoll and the one I went to didn't have a flag, so stopped to scratch my head a bit and saw it a line further up the hill. So maybe dropped 30 seconds or so.
8. On compass to the marsh, R side through the laurel.
9. Went a little right to get away from laurel, then a long slog. Really amazed how long it took me to get back to the area of #2, but then felt better from there and no problem. Through the start, down to the larger trail across the top of the marsh, then along the trail to the junction, down the smaller trail for a bit then along the ridge that more or less pointed to it. A little panic when I got to the pit but didn't see the flag, but it was behind a tree.
10. Under the tunnel, then on compass, noting the cleared area to my right. Right to it, but no box. Looked around on the ground in case it had fallen, but maybe it just hadn't been put out. I was one of the earlier starters.
11. More or less straight.
12. Didn't see the fence on the map until I banged into it on the ground, then cut in too soon, maybe at the first opening. So maybe 20 seconds.
Map and route.
4 PM


Pretty wiped out after a lot of traffic on the way home. Sat on 684 for an hour between the rest stop and 84 before I gave up and went up 22, then cut over to Sherman and New Milford, then Litchfield and Torrington and home. That turned out to be not at all a bad way to get home, once I decided to do it.
