Orienteering Winter Weekend: Course 2

micahblitz

1. +00:49I went too high because I saw people up on the hill, and I mistaked the symbol for reentrant as hill. Once I adjusted I had lost a lot of time because I basically went up the hill twice
2. Symplified by counting houses, went between the 4th and 5th and ran along the road. Went around the fence to the left and grabbed the control.
3. +00:30Tried to stay right out of the control, but it was a cliff so I adjusted and went left. landmarked with the water tower and staying just left of the first building. I went to straight up the hill and had to adjust south. Attack point says I didn't lose any time, but I could have been much faster and more direct.
4. +01:02Came over the top of the ridge, hopped on the road. My initial plan was to run along the edge of the parking lot and enter the woods at the second bend. Once I got up there, however, I tried to go crazy-mountain-man-style and cut into the woods earlier to try and cut off a few seconds, but that was a really bad idea becase it was hard to get through and lost a lot of time getting to the control which was much closer to the road than I expected.
5. I spent a little too much time looking for a way to shortcut down one of the hills between the parking lot. I did save a little time, but I'm not sure it was worth it for the effort it took to get down the hill compared to just using the road. Once I got to Delafield Road i found the control very fast which was good
F. +00:15I went too far North and ended up on the wrong side of the Jewish Chapel. It wasn't too big of a deal, but I probably lost some time.

Total Time Lost - 00:02:36
