Orienteering race (Pound ridge day 2 orange) 48:40 [4] 3.9 km (12:29 / km)

Todays course went better than day 1 but I still got majorly lost on one point which killed me. going from 5-6 was terrible. I hit the wrong trail but thought I hit the right one and ended up taking it to a campsite. The road was a very well done dirt road so i figured it could be considered yellow. I now know it must be paved to be yellow so this was my first mistake. Thinking I had hit the right road I followed it and after about 400 m thought i should turn off. When i did i was in the middle of no where in the forest so i set a emegency north bearing to get to the paved road. When i hit the paved road I found my point but it took more time to find 6 than all the time 1-5 c ombinded. Overall this point took 2302. The rest of the course was easy work. Lesson learned: slow is smooth and smooth is fast- take your time to make sure you hit the easiest route even if its slower so you dont get lost.
