A beautiful day in beautiful woods, too bad you all missed it! Temps in the 40s and rising during the race. I had a decent run. I practiced stopping when things didn't make sense. The first time I stopped right away. The second time it took two brain farts before I stopped (hey, this came up sooner than I thought and Are the north lines off on this map?). That was my biggest mistake, a parallel error. Most of the climb was on the last few legs; that was tiring.
After, Mike and I explored the Etowah Indian Mounds state park, which was interesting. Nice pizza dinner with the KC contingent. I got carded when I ordered a beer :)
An easy travel day to Atlanta. We had time to play tourists, so we went to the High Art Museum. Saw a Gordon Parks exhibit ( a Kansasan!) and a unique sound installation. After we checked into our hotel, we went out for a nice dinner at City Cellar.

Checking out control locations for our next event. Since it is a night O, I figured it would be best to see how the location looked at night, and decide exactly where to put the markers.
My course is too short, I think. It's a one hour score O. I assume you want to make it so that a few folks, but not most, can sweep. At this point, I think a lot of folks will sweep and the fastest will be done in 40 minutes. Need to decide how to make it harder. It's a small map, so I can't expand the distance very easily.
Made it back to KC by 10:30 AM, and then I rushed straight to work. After work, I had a Meetup dinner (I was the organizer this month) so I didn't get home till late. But I was desperate to get in SOME form of exercise after three days of sitting around houses, cars and planes. So I did a bit of tracking and got the HR up for a few minutes.
Another fun day with my neice (and the rest of the family). Flight was late leaving Islip. I sat in front row of airplane, and ran from gate B13 to B5 in a desperate attempt to catch my flight to KC. Frustrating: plane was still at gate, but they had locked the door. Three of us missed the flight. The knew we were coming but still locked the door. Ugh! So I spent the night in Baltimore, and will be late for work tomorrow.
