Brighton Rec January USGS Orienteering practice. I'm almost embarrassed to post this because I thought I'd do so much better. It was a rough day. Sucked on point 1, then hit the next 4 to the left. (but still in visual) Hit 5 right on. Then couldn't find 6 (concluded to myself that it was missing - stolen by the person who put out the table, chairs, and target practice stuff where I thought the CP should be. 7 was pretty straightforward as were 8 and 9. It was starting to get dark as I was coming up on 10, and I passed my attack point and had to run back, but I did manage to find it before I went home. It rained lightly most of the time and it started coming down a lot harder for about the last hour I was out there. Temperature was about 38.
On the way home, I got so cold, despite the fact that I changed completely into dry clothes as soon as I was done. It's a good thing I didn't have any passengers (especially of the male variety) as they surely would have complained about the heat being set at 85 for the first half hour and 80 the last hour of the trip. This terrible regulation of body temperature is one of the big reasons I could never climb Everest.
