Bear Brook NH. 1st time O there!
Perfect weekend and excellent job to UNO and all their supporters for hosting the event.
Congratulations to all my orienteering buddies who placed at The Champs this weekend. Faboulous weather, good friends and comp were all there.
I knew this was going to be a tough area, and it was for me. After looking at my GPS route, I badly missed a number of controls. Maybe I lacked clarity due to some type of dehyration :-) Or the map just kicked my butt .
Whatever the reason NO 5, was killer, just could not seem to be able to relocate off of anything and missed twice even from the next control No 6.
So after 42 minutes later, I was very sloppy for the rest of the meet.
I missed talking to others after, but I had a 17 hour ride in front of me and did get home by 4:00am from the meet, still buzzed from a cup of coffee and the great week of traveling out east to O meets and hiking.
Out east orienteers are lucky to have such great terrain and maps.
