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.
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
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!"
"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"
"hilarious how people are racing with their reading glasses
"76 is funny too"
