Advanced 1 UsynligO course on Shickshinny map. 4.6 k straight line. Upper 70s, mostly sunny and lower humidity.
More Shickshinny coal mine terrain! I kept fantasizing about how great a field checked map at 1:5000 would be in the more detailed areas here - but the KP map at 1:10000 was still a lot of fun. I navigated well today, only missing significantly on 7 (2-3 min) and 11 (~1 min). At 8, 9, 13 and 20 the features I was at when the tune played didn’t really look like what I expected from the map, but I moved on anyway. Thanks again to Greg Ahlswede for creating these maps and courses.

Since I knew Janet was going to be out a while longer I headed back out to visit some of the control sites on the Advanced 2 course which I didn’t get to last time. Once I got out there and realized that I needed to get up some substantial (less than fully mapped) cliffs, I turned the outing into a woods walk, checking out mining remnants. Then I waited around at the finish for Janet to come in (checking the UsynligO app to monitor her progress).
