You don’t need to run faster, you just need to go orienteering more. A lot more. :-)
That’s a nice place, isn’t it?
Yeah, real nice. Any ideas about possible O access permissions? Is "DCR" on the good list or the bad list?
I also have a faint memory that Phil looked into getting lidar for the area?
It's not DCR but a Trustees of Reservations property. They've generally been good about o permission. But parking would be an issue. Although there was once a big event near there with cars parked along Stockwell Rd. Maybe too small an area, though, for NEOC meets with regular courses.
There is lidar, and those who know how could turn it into an o map pretty easier. With virtually no rock and not a lot of vegetation, it would be easy to get it up and running, at least for training.
I confess I was just thinking/dreaming of a training map. In particular the close distance to UMass struck me as appealing, ie, thought it might improve the chances of you getting better student turnout to your training events.
