Setting orienteering course for Sunday May 6th

Just got back from setting the long course for Sunday.

I waited for the rain to stop, but by 5:30 it was clear it wasn’t going to. So half of the time I was in the rain, and even though I had a plastic map cover, the water still got in. To the point where the top side of the map was so wet that the ink was getting smudged (yes, I only have a deskjet at home).

And for extra fun, I had to set the last 5 controls in the dark. Night orienteering is not easy at Umstead, when you’re looking for tiny orange ribbons.
