Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Tuesday, October 14, 2003
A few words about CanadaI'll probably write a bit about our O' trip to Canada over the next few days. I should have plenty of time. I picked up a wicked cold and I'm going to be spending a day or two at home where I have plenty of time to write. Unfortunately, having a wicked cold means I'm not really motivated to write.
The short report -- good courses, maps and terrain. The orienteering was really fun.
Here is the first leg from the first day (M35 course).
My route on the first leg probably cost me a few seconds. I was unsure of how thick the light green would be or how rocky the footing would be. On the way to the start, we passed some very rocky ground. A safe, conservative route to one seemed like a good idea.
I kept running safe routes throughout the course. When I compared routes with some others on the same course, I noticed that everyone ran a number of trails. But, I seemed to run more trails than anyone else.
The rest of my course is here.
