Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Saturday, November 07, 2009
Getting lazyI went to one of the nearer maps today - Clinton Overlook. Google maps shows it as a 12 minute drive. The nearest map, the West Campus sprint map, is a 1 minute drive.
That got me reminiscing about Stockholm. I lived on a map. But, I frequented maps on Lidingo. It was a bit of a trip to get there. I walked from the University to the T-bana, maybe 10 minutes. I took the T-bana and then a bus, 28 minutes according to the SL web page. Finally, I walked the last 800 meters or so, call it 10 minutes. Roughly 48 minutes. As a round trip, it was a good 1.5 hours.
I often traveled farther. Most Wednesday nights we ran night orienteering "off the island." For me that usually meant a walk, riding the T-bana, then getting a lift. I'm guessing the average was about 45-60 minutes each way. As a round trip, 1.5 to 2 hours.
I traveled a lot to get to training in Stockholm. Now, as I get lazier and lazier, a trip to Shawnee Mission Park would feel like a chore. Google maps shows it as a 40 minute drive.
