Boulderdash part II, Bear Brook SP, Green

Silly mistake to the first, lost confidence with where I was on the way to the first, so ran up a spur to double-check. Mostly ok after that. Seemed like the map wasn't wholly precise, but adequate for the job. Lots of fun and thanks to all involved.

Pretty poor navigation on my part the first half, then improved slightly.

Great terrain. Fun times, even if the colours (mostly green) were a little disappointing.

orienteering 43:48 [2] 3.9 km (11:13 / km)

Slowrienteering. Still beat Transvestali to the first two controls... then she went off far, far away and I pottered around a little loop. Found a guitar case with guitar inside at one control.

Perfect weather.

Three people from work came out yesterday.

From a first-timer, sent to a second-timer:
"Oh, and thanks for a fun day of orienteering! I always wanted to try
running around in the woods off-trail and it's great to be able to do
it safely."
The other first-timer apparently had fun, but not ecstatic...

From 'chat' with the second-timer :

"was just laughing...imagining what a map might look like for a course in the saharan desert. or something like tht.
a lone tree, mirage (variable), contours (depends on the winds)..."

Re WOC Middle GPS replay:
"Oh its so cute to watch!
for some reason last time i could only see 2 at a time.
some of these guys got seriously lost!"
"poor WEN"
"you can learn something from watching these guys, to see how they nagivate the contours off trail"

Re "using" re-entrants/depressions at WOC: "what do you mean by "use" you mean just use them as landmarks? or actually just try to run into them even it is slightly off route"

Re photos:
"hilarious how people are racing with their reading glasses
love it"
"76 is funny too"
6 PM

trail run 20:54 [3] 3.03 km (6:54 / km)
