orienteering race (Night-O) 44:55  *** 2.6 km (17:17 / km)
14c shoes: Inov8 O-roc 280 Redux
Hickory Run Night-O - Intermediate
Fun course, went to places slightly outside the camp where I haven't gone before in Night-O (field across the street and a rock down by the stream, which then involved a steep climb back up into camp)
Only problem was #4, which I first attacked from the garage, but ended up past it and hit the road near the power line (think I was too high). Then reattacked from there but drifted downhill badly and ended up on the trail. Went in a third time, from a rootstock at the trail bend, and from there it was pretty much straight up the hill and I finally found it.
Cut through the woods from the play field (#9) to sunglasses field (#10) and upon entering the field noticed white on the ground. Someone had spray painted "Look behind you" on the grass. Super creepy. I don't think it was there the previous day, but could be wrong. It was much more visible at night in the headlamp than it was in the daylight when I went back in the field on Sunday. Hustled to that control and out of the field pretty fast. (This was also the exact same area where I heard creepy sounds a few years back, which ended up likely being an owl.)
