Orienteering 40:00  4.0 km (10:00 / km)
shoes: New Balance Orienteering
Setting and picking up controls for the Fresh Pond park-o. The forecast was for severe thunderstorms, but it wasn't actually raining when I left to go set controls, so I figured I would give it a try and see if anyone showed up. It started drizzling as I started setting controls and rapidly changed to a torrential downpour. I could only see about 20ft. in front of me, and I was completely soaked. It was pretty warm, though, so it was actually a lot of fun. A golfer who was escaping the rain thought that I was carrying around diving signs, which I guess would have been appropriate for the weather. Goggles might have been helpful :-).
People did actually end up showing up, which was good, and it didn't actually rain when the park-o was in progress. There was a man-made feature that I had put a control on, which was in the wrong place on the map. I was in a rush setting controls and just found the man-made object and put a control on it. I noticed that something seemed weird with the control placement but didn't really think about it. Turns out it was on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. Sorry!
