orienteering race 2:09:44  ***
ARDF 2 meter course at Peaceful Valley. Not a good run.
Couldn't pick up any signal at all, at least a third of the time. Seems to be a loose connection on my receiver and/or bad earphones.
Finally found two of four controls, then broke an element on my antenna while going to the next one. Hasty field repair sorta worked, but by then I was pretty discouraged and took about five cycles within 100m of my last control. Orienteering from there to the finish gets an A, radio work gets a D-
miscellaneous (snake wrangling) 1:00 
Not very physical, but hey it is worth the story. Came back from dinner to find a snake soaking up the last heat from the gravel parking lot, right by the walkway to the admin building. It was almost completely dark, and the snake was definitely in a place that would soon see a lot of foot and vehicle traffic. So I herded it to the relative safety of some tall weeds nearby.
