NAOC Sprint

1, 2, 3, 4: Focused on reading properly and figuring out which control was which. Weird mapping. Ignored where the train track crossings were, I figured it would be quicker to just run at it and find the nearest crossing. I was right.
5: The angle of the line leaving four is misleading and convinced me to choose right. I still think it's a good route, hard to compare though.
6: Reading crossable fences is hard.
8: Oh boy. Didn't have my control description, so I was map flipping to check them. 7 was close enough to 6 that I felt comfortable not checking the number. Exiting 7, my route was right, but I immediately forgot that I had hit 7. Cue me thinking I'm going to seven and convincing myself I made a 90 degree error out of six. Fun times. Bringing my control description along next time.
10: Right is faster.
12: Whoops dragged right by avoiding private property but I chose a route that was difficult to mess up so I lost minimal, if any, time.
14: Ugh. Compass.

Orienteering race 20:24 [4] 3.44 km (5:56 / km) +60m 5:27 / km
shoes: Adidas Pureboost

HPP Fundraiser

348 controls

Chose to skip 7 and 8 because they seemed like outliers to me. Weak points are 16 and 11. 16 is just awkwardly positioned but taking it early minimized climb and navigation, while taking it after 3 looks more difficult, and I would rather head to 4 after 3, making that my exit point for the course. 11 was another possible skip control but seemed like the lesser of evils. Messed up 12 by a bit.
