Orienteering (NA Rogaine Champs) 13:00:00 
Teamed up with rookie Andrew Cameron for this. Came 5th.
In general, quite a tough, "unpretty" event. No easy points. Everything had to be fought for. The terrain did not vary and one either did out and backs along ridge lines or climbed up and down slopes. Almost always in the forest - no open areas either than the occasional road. So, that being said, we had an O.K. run. Actually missed two points we went after. Was awarded the points for the one control as it was not located where the map said it was. The second was an 80-pointer we relocated and attacked twice from two different locations and couldn't locate. It was indicated as a vegetation boundary - not the most accurate thing to locate off of in full forest to begin with. This was a daytime attack as well, so eventually realized we were only going to locate this through luck, and I had a hard time sticking around to count on that. One shining moment was we spiked everyone one of our nightime controls and got over 600 points in darkness. If only our daytime attacks were as accurate.
I do feel quite beaten up now, and am slow to start my return 4400km drive home...
