Orienteering 1:25:05 [3] 6.0 mi (14:11 / mi)

Green X Classic at Camp Buckner. Fun.
15 seconds before my start, I realized I did not have a compass. That's because I was almost late for my start, and rushed out of the van without the thing. Fortunately you could see the sun, screened by clouds so it was easier to take a bearing off of. (Also nice because cooler than yesterday.) Later in my course, the sun shone more strongly but that was OK because then I was headed away from the sun and was able to take direction off my shadow. No compass meant being more in touch with the terrain. More forest eye candy time without the distraction of The Machine.

Orienteering 3:02:41 [3]

Blue at Camp Buckner. 10:54 start.
I'd found Peter Z in between races, so I gave him back his compass. I'd bought a $14.95 compass from GO the previous evening. That's what I used on this blue course.
Saw Gail & Peter G at start. Tried to stretch a little. Nice and cool; sun was shaded. Smelled like spring to die for.
