Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Some old orienteering notesI came across a bunch of old orienteering notes yesterday. We've just moved into a new house and I've been unpacking boxes of stuff. Sometimes I find something I didn't realize I'd kept. Like the notes above.
I took the notes in 1986 (I think...it was the year Oringen took place in Boras). At the time I was trying to learn to make sense of Nordic terrain. One of the things I was doing was making these little sketches and timing myself.
I'm not impressed with my notes. I didn't get more than the very rough outlines of the legs. I certainly didn't capture the useful specific details that must have been along each leg.
I was a bit suprised to see a couple of notes on the sketch. "H" (for hygge) in an area that I think was a felled area on the leg in the middle of the right side of the paper. On the leg below, I wrote "groen" to indicate a green area. I must have been trying to teach myself Swedish.
