Sunday's map (click on map for a larger version) --

9 AM

orienteering 1:00:20 [3] 3.0 mi (20:07 / mi)
shoes: pegasus 4

Day 2, 4.0 km beeline, plenty of climb.

OK. Only problem was spacing out a bit on the way to 4, took me a lot longer than it should have to make sense of where I'd gotten myself.

And such a strange course, in particular some of the control locations -- very small rocks or cliffs that in some cases shouldn't have been on the map. My sense is that the controls were decided on before a terrain visit, and not changed even if the actual site was pretty weak. I can't imagine that someone actually picked them all based on what they saw in the terrain. I guess we need to do a better job educating....

Overall, the weekend was a great success. (1) Don't think I hurt myself Saturday despite a dozen falls; (2) lots of sunshine, so nice hanging out at the finish; (3) good dinner with Charlie and Rhonda and Ken Sr and, the star of the evening, Bill Duncan; (4) don't think I hurt myself Sunday either, only 2 or 3 falls; and (5) a final treat, stopping for lunch on the way home today, excellent Thai food in Beacon. Very glad we went. Just wish Gail's knees were doing better.
