Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Orienteering in IcelandI was psyched to see an active orienteering club in Iceland (thanks for Patrick for the discovery). Iceland is one of my favorite places.
When Mary and I visited a few years ago we visited a couple of orienteering maps but never made contact with any local orienteers. We tried, using an email address acquired from a Swedish mapper.
Now that there's an active club, I'm starting to day dream about another visit. It is important to visit new and different places. As Havamal (words of Viking wisdom) points out:
The traveler must
train his wits.
All is easy at home.
He who knows little
is a laughing-stock
amongst men of the world.

Came home from Iceland last week after about a week of mapping near Reykjavik. Terrains are demanding and fun, especially lava-fields (never mapped anything as difficult).Post a Comment
This map might be used next year for their second big(ger) event ICE-O (first one was organized in the beginning of June this year: http://rathlaup.is/iceo/ice-o-5-juni/).
