Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Monday, December 26, 2005
Tis the season......for making little tiny orienteering maps.
I drew a map of Stephen and Annette's home as a Christmas present. I used aerial photos and USGS contours that I found on the internet. I've only visited their house once and I'm sure the map will need some fieldchecking. I hope to get back there (Clinton Corners, NY) in the spring and finish the map.

A few years ago, Mikell Platt mapped our house. We hosted a small race, but the map hasn't seen much use in years and needs updating (we've planted some trees).
I'm guessing that lots of orienteers have little maps like this. It would seem to be a very good indication that someone is a serious O' geek. Which, depending on your point of view, is a very good thing or a bit sad. I think it is good and I'm guessing that most people taking the time to read this page would agree. posted by Michael | 10:56 AM
