Still feeling crummy, so didn't do too much. Checked the first half of the controls for the event this Saturday and worked on a bunch of Kamloops promotion (the least favorite part of my job but probably one of the most crucial).
Cold hit me hard today, dead tired and fever. Mapping from the couch and working on promo for Kamloops series. Hopefully we get some more new faces signed up, already have 2 complete newcomers signed up, and I'm talking with about 5 more who are interested.
Just got an email from a teacher in Vernon looking for me to come down to her grade 6/7 class to teach some orienteering, so gotta figure out how to respond to that one soon.
Course setting for the South Canoe event, and updating the map in a few places (old cross cut and stubby to indistinct trails, new part of no more tears, etc.). Looking like a fun, hard course for the long one. Beginner is kind of bland, but I always struggle with interesting, but easy courses espescially in Malibu.

I'm done school!
Phil's second training course in South Canoe. Except for a couple of legs which just went straight up hills (a pet peeve of mine is just going straight up a hill to the top with absolutely no navigation involved...) it was a fun course on a section of map that I had never run. A couple of little mistakes, I think I might do a full write up on this one later tonight.
Attached gps file is off since I forgot to stop the GPS...

Run/Uphill Hike up Mount Ida starting from the berry farm. Found a new dirt biking trail that I used to get uphill, which just went up (~20% grade for 1.5km or so) so walked the entire thing. Then I hit the snow at around 1000m elevation, all the roads had about 8-12 inches, but the forest and trails much less. Most of the creeks were running down the center of all the trails, so they were fairly open until around 1100m where I turned around because of the snow. https://www.instagram.com/p/BTKsLgGDczW/?taken-by=...
Ran down the westernmost silvermine dirt biking trail.
