Sometimes it just feels better to vent :)
I changed in the bathroom and could hardly get my laces undone and clothes changed because my hands (which were red) were not functioning properly.
I had a 90 minute drive home, used the seat heater and blasted the hot air and just started feeling normal when I pulled in the driveway.
I'm glad I didnt talk Patty into going, I would have never heard the end of it.
Reading your leg comments I know exactly how you feel (looks like you did green) But I wasn't wearing my glasses so I could not see the briars until they were 5 feet from me or embedded in my thigh.

So sorry my friend. Really am. Seemed like a rough day for all today.

I can relate to everything. Happy to say I'm warmed up and my fingers are working again. I fell down while standing still (duh!). I just turned my head to see who was coming up behind me at a control and fell on my butt. I should've just minded my own business.

Oh, I hope Ann you'll feel better. Please do not risk your back for no reason. Sometimes orienteering is indeed brutal sport and we are tough folks and die hard before giving up course. Anyway, get better.

Sucks.. But I am glad you are more or less ok now. I have had times like this at French Creek as well. So glad I did not go, but was dismayed to see Clem getting a briar just north of his right eye...

Scratch in my eye too! Off-center though.

I don't like it when everyone gets hurt.

Surprisingly kept my face unscathed (but I did pull a few thorns from my scalp) and my thighs look like they were used as a pin cushion.
