From the parking area to the start of the US Middle Distance Championships.
Orienteering race (Foot) 42:40  **** 2.7 mi (15:48 / mi) +80m 14:28 / mi
2017 Gold Rush Meet and USA SML Championships near Stanley, ID, on the Dutch Creek map; Middle Distance. I started well enough though I was exerting a good bit. That may have contributed to errors. Through #5 I was fairly clean. For #6 I popped out on the drop off to the right and found 3 small unmapped boulders in a similar configuration to the mapped ones. I lost time dropping down and going left until I found the control above. I wanted to avoid green and more climb going to #7 so I dropped and got right. I cut back left but didn't see the pond that I expected to, and I didn't have an attackpoint. I wandered a bit with others before finding it. I didn't spike #8 but was pretty close. On the way to #9 I passed an orienteering I'd seen earlier and got distracted racing him. I read a depressions as a hill so I went left of a hilll instead of reading my bearing closely. I didn't figure out I'd misread the map until after finishing but wandered close enough to see others coming out of the control, to find it. I hit #11 well but was getting tired. I went over the spur and saw the pond on the way to #10 but paused on the wrong side of a knoll near the control. I went at #12 hard. However I again misread a depression for a knoll and went along the flat until I found a knoll to attack from. That eventually got me to #8 again
Running (Trail) 9:57  0.67 mi (14:51 / mi)
2017 Gold Rush Meet and USA SML Championships near Stanley, ID, on the Stanley Trap Creek map. I jogged a streamered route to the start of the Long course. There were a lot of downed logs along the way which helped get me ready for more when actually racing. The elevation was over 6,700 ft. and it was getting a lot warmer than the chilly morning. That was making me feel sluggish.
Orienteering (Foot) 1:21:21  7.0 km (11:37 / km) +200m 10:10 / km
2017 Gold Rush Meet and USA SML Championships near Stanley, ID, on the Stanley Trap Creek map-Long Course Championship. This glacial Lorraine area with views toward the majestic Sawtooth Mountains was challenging terrain for me. The course setters took pity on us by having big catching features on many controls, some long handrails and even by looping through the same part of the map more than once. Overall I felt that I did a pretty good job navigating and not letting the deadfall distract me too much. My main errors were from poor judgement or loss of concentration on technically easier legs like #6 and #13. Sluggish at first, I had the impression that I sped up towards the end. JP Ingebritsen and Tom Overbaugh didn't have great days like they often do, however Tapio Karras showed both his technical skill and good speed as he dusted the group of us with a 68 minute run. I got Silver in +M55 with JP getting 3rd only 3 minutes back behind me.
Running warm up/down (Street & Trail) 9:00  0.9 mi (10:00 / mi)
Boise, ID; warmup from Boise State University campus, to E. Julia Davis Park and back, then some loops near the start of the US Orienteering Sprint Championship.
Orienteering (Foot) 17:05  2.6 km (6:34 / km) +10m 6:27 / km
2017 Gold Rush Meet and USA SML Championships at the Boise State University campus. I ran a fairly clean race but I just wasn't moving fast enough. One of my worst legs was out of the start when I almost missed going to #1--it was just about in line with #2. I may have lost some seconds for hesitation getting through the tennis courts the first time and I took a slightly longer than necessary route to #14. I was slowing mentally on the last 2-3 controls which lost me more seconds. Others could say the same or worse. JP Ingebritsen, Tom Overbaugh, and Tapio all beat me within about 45 seconds.
It was a fun and straight forward race. Several joined for lunch downtown and the Hession's joined us for a stop at a science exhibition. The longish drive to Stanley came afterward--it was capped off by awesome views of the Sawtooth Mountains and dinner with friends.
Hiking (Street & Trail) 1:02:00  1.75 mi (35:26 / mi)
Boise, ID. After a morning tour of the Old State Penitentiary, a visit to a candy factory, and a few other things, Peggy, Max, Samantha, and I started from E. Julia Davis Dr. and did the Golden Apple Quest. This was a hunt of sorts with written walking directions and clues to a puzzle. Max played along while Samantha was lagging being tired or just not into walking. She wanted to go to the swimming pool, which came later. We solved the puzzle and stopped briefly at the Discover Idaho science exhibits made for kids. The downtown area seemed pretty nice overall. Much of it was newer than I'd have guessed and the people were pretty nice. I couldn't remember much of anything from my last visit +10 years ago.
