Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Thierry Gueorgiou's Cowboy BootsLisa is at the Swedish 5-days and spent some time today asking Thierry Gueorgiou questions. I don't know the details, but my guess is the conversation went something like this...
Lisa: You've been a great orienteer for a long time. You must have had some good coaching when you were a junior.
Thierry Gueorgiou: Oui. We were a bunch of juniors in France who trained a lot.
Lisa: Going to training camps?
Thierry Gueorgiou: Oui.
Lisa: Have you ever heard of Sid Richardson?
Thierry Gueorgiou: Sid? Hmmm...Sid? Oui, Sid...Sex Pistol, right?
Lisa: Ha, ha! No, not Sid Vicious (though some might say that Richardson is Vicious). No, Sid Richardson is where we have a training camp every year for juniors. It is really good. You should come and help coach the juniors.
Thierry Gueorgiou: That would be fun. I would like that very much. Working with juniors is always rewarding. Where is this training camp?
Lisa: In Texas. Not so far from Dallas.
Thierry Gueorgiou: Texas. I have never been there. The U.S. Dollar is so weak. It wouldn't cost much to go to Texas. When is this training camp?
Thierry Gueorgiou: June! In Texas! It must be hot as hell. You must be crazy.
Lisa: Well, June isn't so bad. It is much more comfortable than people think.
Thierry Gueorgiou: Hmmm...maybe I should come to Texas. With the U.S. Dollar so weak I could buy several pairs of cowboy boot.
Lisa: I would like to talk more, but I have to go help my husband buy some food. The only word he knows in Swedish is Jordnotssmor and he wants something else to eat today.

She should have asked about Trail-O. If I understood the results correctly, he won the European Trail-O competition held during the recent French 5 Day. But then I may have misread or confused the names.Post a Comment
