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.

Orienteering race (Orange Pound Ridge ) 1:03:34 [4] 3.8 km (16:44 / km)

I was lost 3 times on this 10 point course which contributed to the very long time. Going from 2 to 3 I took east on a marsh instead of south which took me to a road. Disoriented I took a left on the road when I should have taken a right. After I went about 400 m down the road I realized this and turned around. When i got to my point finally this leg took 1023. Leg 5-6 took awhile also. I took a wrong bearing by 10 degrees and ended up on a wrong draw. After wandering around for awhile I found out where i was and went to my point. This point took me 1352. From 7-8 I was also lost. Well actually i was more shit on by thorns than lost. I tried going through dark green, found out i couldnt and went back which wasted my time. This leg took 1506. all and all not a great course but i think it helped me improve for day 2.

Orienteering (O Course ) 55:00 [3]

Pretty fun and not to hard O course around the same state park as yesterday. Despite my map completely disintegrating I still found all the points so you can basically say I'm an Airborne Ranger Delta Force Recon Seal now.

Orienteering (Sprint course ) 55:00 [3]

Did a sprint course around the local state park. Relatively easy terrain but I took a wrong turn and was lost for a solid 25 minutes. Need to learn to pay more attention to the map.
