GA Navigator Cup classic on Lake Delano map in FD Roosevelt SP, Pine Mountain, GA. Brown X, 4.4 km, 155m climb (most of it in the 5-6 leg). We had later starts today (I was at 12:19; WRE starts were 9-10, and NRE starts began at 10). Cloudy and about 50 or so, so not bad weather, considering.

Another decent day orienteering-wise (except for my two bonehead legs, #1 and #7). I again had trouble finding the start triangle, but headed out following streamers to a trail (they were set up to lead White/ Yellow runners) which trail I then stayed on to a bend which was my attackpoint for a ditch about 100m away. I was drawn off by a flag about 30-40m along (first control on Orange course) and then when it wasn't the one I was looking for I didn't bother checking my compass much and continued on to the ditch. Saw a flag on a rootstock but it was the green X 100+m southeast of the control so I had to head back N.

I then did okay through #6 (I saw a mylar balloon on my climb to the flag and picked it up to drop at the control site; Glen said he saw it there). On the way to 7 I checked off the reentrant with the rootstocks and vertical green but then got turned around somehow and thought the cliffline was facing N instead of S and went up the wrong side of the broad spur for awhile before correcting. D'oh!

Fine to the rest. Saw another flag on my way to #8 but it wasn't far enough along (and wrong code) so didn't get drawn off. Stayed low until the reentrant before the control (actually went right by a control on a brown dot/dirt pile) and then climbed until I could see the rootstock before the control. Saw Glen exiting as I approached but I don't think he saw me. Took forever to reach the trail to the last control but was finally done.

Warming up a bit near the start area before the sprint.

Today's weather is as nice as it's going to get, sunny and mid to upper 50s.

GA O Fest / Navigator Cup 2022. Brown X course, 2.3 km, 75m climb, on a 1:4000 map that was still hard to read.

Pretty clean on most of the controls, reading ahead enough to know which direction to leave the control. I wasn't sure what I was looking for at #7 so I had some hesitation but recovered okay. Going 7-8, though, involved underpasses and overpasses and ways through that I just could not interpret even with my magnifier...everything looked like walls blocking the way, so I went around. The optimum route from 7-8 might have taken me ~2:00, maybe, but I took 3:20. On my way to #9 (a very short leg), however, I did notice an easy exit from the area where 8 and 9 were located, which upon review after we were done and had time to study the map appeared to be the best way into 8.

Preliminary results has me 1st of 2 (the other runner mp'ed; she never went to #1). There are two more people in the F65 class signed up for Sat-Sun.

Neighborhoods, with a loop around the "home" block to see how long it is (I'll probably forget, but 0.5km). Mid to upper 30s, mostly cloudy, and no significant breeze.
