Note
(rest day)

So that was my first Scottish Six Days in ... thirty years. Don't remember it being as tough, but I was only thirteen back then and fairly fit. Six days of standard orienteering would have been a challenge. Six days of Scottish orienteering was about four too much. I ran out of petrol on Day 3 (good run technically).

Consistent results: always mid-field, apart from above-mentioned Day 3; rarely in the top 20 in the splits; adding up to 35th position overall.

Some poor route-choices, influenced by fatigue (hoping to avoid climb, longing for a line feature to simplify things for my oxygen-starved brain); and three similar navigation errors: a result of over-estimating distance travelled from attack point, lack of confidence.

Scottish Six Days - Day 1
steady run really, leaked a lot of time in the circle, lost confidence in control visibility when finding 4 inside an unmarked gorse bush, cut up the hill early on the next and did a loop of a bracken-filled clearing in case the control was hiding in there, made a 45° error on the penultimate control, puzzled by the track which was mapped as a path

15 minutes behind the winner
