Orienteering race (West Point) 1:08:45 [4] *** 5.0 km (13:45 / km)
shoes: Integrators

Yaaay, orienteering again! Happy, happy.

Daft routes to 4 and 5. To 4 thought right would be good, so instead tried to go straight through the green swamp ... bad idea, gee what a surprise. To 5 saw the low left route, thought it excellent, and so instead went high right. My self destruct decision system was in fine form.

However, the split system has flagged leg 12 as my biggest error -- totally not my fault. Circled around the correct northern boulder of the pair near the end, but no flag. Stood puzzled, surveying the way I'd come, and the map, searching for an error. Circled again. No ideas. At some point decided might as well check the southern boulder and there was the flag. Totally mis-hung and yet it seems I was the only one who even noticed. But a minor blip on a decent course, on a good map.

Then off to sight see. I visited the FDR national historic sight in Hyde Park,
and then took a walk on the Walkway over the Hudson.

Walk/Hike (Hanging controls.) 2:30:00 [1]
shoes: Integrators

Hanging the controls and flagging for this evenings "Phil training".

Decent turn out, and again a most excellent re-hydration session afterwards. Great to see everyone.

Couple annoyances. (1) Dang ticks. Avoided these guys for years, but had 1 bite in he woods Sunday, 1 more today, and then another at home on the couch *after* I'd already showered. Sneaky bugger. (2) Dang flying bugs, black flies maybe? Not an issue when moving, but annoying as all heck standing around at the picnic tables. (3) Blisters. For some reason my feet have suddenly decided they don't like my o-shoes. So now I have blisters on both heels, which is gonna be fun at West Point.
