Orienteering race ("pink" course) 1:18:51  *** 5.4 km (14:36 / km) +198m 12:20 / km
spiked:16/18c slept:7.0 shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2
WCOC at Ansonia, put on by Marie and Mike, who kept the fire burning.
They ran out of green course maps by the time we registered, so Lyn and I talked Marie into letting us do the red course (plenty of those maps) and just cut off the northern legs and butterfly. We followed Red through #10, then headed to 18 and followed the rest of the course from there. Good compromise, maybe just a bit longer than the green (I'll have to measure it). On approach to 3 I hesitated and looked on the hill earlier (SE), but figured it out.
Nice time afterwards talking about the NC meet and the GPS issue with the Walkers and Gagarins. ;-)
EDIT: Added FR track, which measured my distance and climb as 6.299 km, 198m. I measured about 5.4 km for the straightline distance between features I visited, so a little bit longer than the originally designed green course.
Temp in the 40s and cloudy; only a few light sprinkles, but the woods were wet from earlier rains. Cold afterwards; not great weather for just standing around in damp clothing.
SECOND EDIT: I changed the spikes to 16; took a roundabout route 5-6.
