The idea was to just have no major disasters today, after the last couple events I've gone to and DNF'd or MP'd...and I did just that!
I had some trouble finding the Pit for #5, as it required either going through awful woods, or going around and losing my bearing a bit, which is what happened. It still was unpleasant in there with all the rocks and brambles, but oh how happy I was when I found it. Also had some trouble with #11, where I had to reroute b/c of bad woods (the green has spread,) and got a bit off course. It seemed that it took forever to get to the trail, and I was worried for a while that I had zig zagged in some terrible way. We'll see on the RG. It was a sweaty day in the woods, and I couldn't move very fast, especially at the end - uphill and over the sunny fields.
It was really great to be back orienteering (and not effing up too terribly, hahah.) I needed this! Congrats to my companion Hughmac3 who kept saying how badly did when in fact he came in 2nd! :)
