Georgia Navigator Cup, Day 1 Brown. Hey, it's the first color change in my orienteering lifetime, and also the last one. The woods were fast and open, and there was not much climb on this course -- mainly in the long uphill to the top of the ridge before #4.
I had a little bit of trouble finding #1 in the pit, a bingo control. Fast on the long leg to #3, went just high enough on the hill to count the reentrants, and spiked the control coming down. But an amazing screw-up on the next long leg to #6. Something went wrong after I left #5, and I lost track of where I was. Pushed on towards the west and came to a big creek, but which one was it? Oh, they all join just to the north, so I'll find that and everything will be great. Well, I must have already been north of the junction, because I got nearly up to the lake (which was off the map). I angled back to the SW and finally got to the dirt road, which was actually my original plan of attack.
