Note

A friend just signed up to do the Vegas half marathon. Thought I might join him, and so checked registration ... $150. Seriously? People pay this? Last half I did I think cost $35. True, that was like 7 years ago, but WTF?

Toasty, but not brutal. Objective was just to show up. Success. Gotta start somewhere.

Orienteering race (Ratlum Sprint A) 18:08 [3] 1.5 km (12:05 / km)
shoes: Oroc 280

Gorgeous day, warm, humidity OK, perfect BBQ afternoon.

First up, apologies for showing up too late for the planned relays. I did have a memory about it, and so deliberately checked the WCOC site this morning, but the site just said sprints.

Anyhoo, first up sprint A. Got around, no big mistakes, a personal first for me at Ratlum. From 3 to 4, thought to myself, hey this could be mapped as bare rock... only to see now that it is mapped as bare rock. Seems my eyes can no-longer distinguish the grey from the white.

Orienteering (Ratlum Sprint B) 16:57 [3] 1.6 km (10:36 / km)
shoes: Oroc 280

Getting ready to start sprint B, and lo and behold a large bear wandered up Charley's driveway! It was completely nonchalant about seeing the bunch of us around the picnic table. I backed away. However, most every one else pulled out their phones in order to get a photo, and several approached the bear as it mosseyed along in order to get a better picture.

At some point, Charley told me to get going, and not to worry because sprint B started in a different direction than were the bear was. So I asked about the direction the course finished, which was answered with "Well, I'm sure it will be gone by then."

Erp.

So off I went. Sure enough the course finished right through the area the bear had been, including a field with long grass. I decided to go around.

As usual, fine BBQ after, and the traditionally awesome annual meeting.
