I am Teh Worst at Lick Creek. They say that in life you should always strive to be your best self; at Lick Creek I become my worst orienteering self. It may be that I'm simply not technically sound enough to navigate consistently well on a map with fuzzy vegetation and non-LIDAR contours, where one must rely overly on the compass. Major issues on 1, 10, and 17. Good news is I am out of the vortex now, so my skills are back again.
The other good news is I've found the Cascade anthem:
RED the blood of angry men
BLACK the dark of ages past
RED a world about to dawn
BLACK the night that ends at last!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiJFpabBuMA&t=1...
