THIS ONE'S FOR YOU POPS. (sorry it wasn't better...)
Long - Egypt Mills - Orange
it's amazing how when you go slow, you see so much more. today i just concentrated on contact with the map, and i knew where i was pretty much all the time. my big mistake was a poor route choice from 4 to 5, after my run in with the hunter. (apparently, 700 orienteers should all be wearing orange so he can go kill things in the woods.)
i was low on energy, and my legs and butt were hurting, but navigation was fairly good. i just went slow and tried not to make mistakes. i think i'm getting better at reading subtle features, like contours. but -- i want to be so much better at this. only place to go is up.
the really good news is that my dad is getting out of the hospital sometime this weekend! :)
