Night O' at Eagle Creek East in Indianapolis.
I got 22 of 35 controls. Mike won with 26.
Pretty good performance---I skipped a bunch of distant controls and kept everything reasonable for a 2 hour event. A few misplaced controls, and at least three "unforced errors" where I added a bit of unnecessary distance. If I hadn't made the errors, I might have been in the medals---third had 23---But---with them, no way---Mike noticed one way that *might* have got me one more control and back in under two hours. (It was fortuitous to skip some of the distant controls because they were the most difficult placements, and most likely to be a bit dodgy. Both Mike and Rob had to deal with more of those than I did. Several times I ran smoother and faster than I have other places recently. (Freaked me out a bit, but I lost my legs about 15 minutes from the end.)
Really fun event. Night O' is so fun. I ordered a MagicShine (?) Headlamp
yesterday. It might make it here by the Night O' champs. I need to order some halogen bulbs for my Silva 480 from Sweden---My 20W is burned out, and the 10W is slumming it. I figured it would be easy to source them locally, but no dice. I've wasted about 2 hours looking locally rather than just placing a ten or fifteen dollar order from overseas. (facepalm...Although...now that I think about it, I could, if necessary, get 6W, 10W, and 20W bulbs local for 12 Volts (rather than 6V), and make an adapter cord that would give the headlamp 12V rather than 6. I *could*, but I'm not gonna.)
