Green course at Earl's Trails. Bring-your-own-map course set by Phil Bricker with actual orienteering flags but no punching (Thanks Phil.) 4.8k, 250m. Pretty warm with temps in the low to mid-80s.

Mistakes on three controls but finished with twelve seconds to spare. :-) Not careful enough to the first control and lost track of which trails I crossed - fortunately saw and recognized the hill the control was on from a distance. Missed 5 to the right but doubled back when the hill got steeper. Also overshot 10 a bit but realized I was too far down the reentrant. About 4 minutes total.

Excuses if I needed them: 1. It was hot. 2. At control 6 the capsule of my compass popped out of the baseplate, so for the rest of the course I carried the functional part of the compass in my non-map hand while the rest was strapped to my thumb. 3. Legs were tired from running around on the Moreau map yesterday. 4. Actually started and finished at the trail junction NW of the one in the center of the circle, making the course about 40m longer.

Green course at Moreau Lakes SP (UsynligO course but there were also streamers at the locations). Nice course by Grant Staats. 5.5k straight line. Spectacular orienteering terrain and excellent map - it doesn't get better than this! Low 80s, partly cloudy - warm but not overwhelming. Lots of mosquitos at the parking area but not bad in the woods if you kept moving.

I orienteered well, in contact throughout except for a few brief lapses from which I recovered quickly. For most controls the UsynligO tune played as I approached the streamer which I had already spotted (splits in AP are when I reached the feature/streamer, not when the tune played). I spent about 4 extra minutes at control 7-#39, included in the 7-8 split, retrieving the streamer from west of the marsh in the circle and re-hanging it on the cliff. Map with route.

(Disclaimer: I have probably spent more time on this map than anyone (even the mapper), having set courses for three National Ranking Event days and a Billygoat. It's been at least 6 years since I've been on the map, but I do have a pretty good feel for how things are mapped.)

Frenchtown Preserve. Nice network of twisty trails with few rocks and roots, once you climb the hill to get to them. Also a climb to get back to the parking area since there's a ravine to be crossed. Upper 70s, sunny but the area is mostly wooded, so plenty of shade.
