Bike - Slipstream (Andover & back) 3:22:00 [3] 67.2 km (3:00 / km) +435m 2:55 / km
shoes: Slipstream

SLR to Rockville, Rockville Spur, Hop River Trails to Burnap Brook in Andover. Back via trails to Vernon - stopped in at Vernon Cycle to get a chain tool, then over to Taco Bell for snacks and Dew. Then across Ellington finishing up the hill on Snipsic Lake Road and around the lake to home.. Nice day, good ride....

Note: Going to try and ride something every day this month. Commute when I can, and at least down to the lake and back on busy days where I can't squeeze anything else in. We'll see how I do...

Looking back at Routegadget maps (I never got my Long map back) I now realize what I did to mp on Monday. Controls 10,11&12 were pretty close together in a straight line. 10 was fine, but then partway to #11 things didn't feel right, I slowed down, checked the map and looked around and looking back to my right things seemed to make sense and I saw a bag so I jogged over to verify and lo and behold #61 was indeed on my description sheet. What I failed to notice, coming in from a different direction, is that this was actually #10 that I had already punched. But I mistakenly assumed it was 11, then headed off to #12, which in retrospect seemed to take a little longer to get to than I was expecting, but I didnt put the pieces together. So I apparently visited #10 twice in a row and then indeed didn't go to #11, passing below it looking for #12 lower on the slope. Ah well, it was a fun weekend anyway...

Orienteering warm up/down (Monday Model) 15:00 [1] ***
shoes: Salomon TR2

Checking out the warmup area with Jackson.

Orienteering race (Long RedX) 1:21:55 [5] *** 8.4 km (9:45 / km) +355m 8:03 / km
shoes: Salomon TR2

Well, the card says I mispunched #11. But it was a great race. Controls #2 & #3 were quite tentative as I had a bit of a time reading the trails correctly, but then settled down and mostly ignored minor trails. Didn't question it at download as I had to get back to go out with Jackson on his course, but looking at the map afterwards, I know I went to #11 and verified the correct control # because I went via a nearby control that I knew wasn't mine (the fire ring photo in the meet notes). But I guess the box didn't beep (can't recall that specifically) And my leg to #12 from there was just fine. I have no doubt in my mind that I went there, so I'm counting this as a full race here on Attackpoint.

Orienteering (Long White) 1:09:54 [1] *** 2.6 km (26:53 / km) +60m 24:06 / km
shoes: Salomon TR2

Shadowing Jackson on his first official 'A' meet course. After noon by the time he went out and quite warm. Did very well for the first half, then had an error on #7 and I assisted him a bit as he was getting very discouraged. Then ok for a couple more and another need for assistance.

Overall he did quite well, considering the heat was bothering him and it was a long white course. Had the result changed from 'A' course to 'Rec' course due to my minor assistance. He enjoyed the whole weekend, but I think he'll stick with Rec courses a bit longer until he builds up his confidence more and ability to correct the errors without getting frustrated so easily.

AOWN - Enroute to #6 (which was at Saturdays first callup line location) - I stopped Jackson and pointed directly ahead down the road. He quickly chided me for assisting as it turns out I was also pointing at the flag (which I hadn't previously noted) but instead at a young deer coming over the embankment about 10 meters in front of us (which Jackson hadn't seen) and then proceeded to cross the road in front of us and head up into the woods.
