Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Spider webs in the forestI'm planning to do some technique training in the forest that weekend. This time of year that means I'll running into a lot of spider webs. In anticipation, I've developed version 1.0 of my spider web scale:
0 = no spider webs in the forest
1 = a few spider webs but not enough to cause any distraction (not more than 2 or 3 webs per 10 minutes of running)
2 = enough spider webs to cause some distraction, if running on a trail you'd probably duck under a few webs (3-6 webs per 10 minutes of running)
3 = spider webs cause distraction, if running on a trail you'd pick up a stick or wave your hand ahead of you to keep the webs out of your face (10+ webs per 10 minutes of running)
4 = annoying, distracting, making running in the forest or on a trail frustrating unless you're waving a stick in front to break through the webs.
I'm hoping for level 2, I'm expecting level 3, I'm dreading level 4, and I'm dreaming of levels 0 or 1.
