Orienteering race 20:00 
shoes: August 2009 Integrators
The royal chainik defeated me soundly.
A number of things conspired against me: inadequate sleep over the past week or so, a lot on my mind (mostly NAOC 2012), too much activity the day and night before, and lack of racing recently meant that my body and mind were feeble.
So, Colgan could get in my head and blow it up. It was like an opportunistic infection that wouldn't at all bother a healthy individual.
Bailed after 2, but went towards three so I could get out to the road and do a jog and slink back into the camp unnoticed.
It does suck that the HR weekend ended on such a low note.
Map hike 1:00:00 
Stopped by Loch Lomond on the way home.
My plan B for the finish arena didn't pan out. So, it is back to plan A, but there could be plans C and D.
A large pile of bear scat in the likely event arena area (down by the pond and bathrooms.)
This race will require a lot of time in the woods this fall and winter before I'll even know exactly where we should map.
It would be really nice if we could mow sections of the Loch Lomond fields... for W/Y trails and the arena.
