Missing in action

Okay, it's definitely time to clean house. Over the weekend, I failed to find my thumb compass (for the weekend's orienteering meet) or my cordless drill (to finish my rowing dory), despite remembering having put them somewere findable. They're both still missing. I'd like to do some boat work tonight, but I've got two and a half weeks before the next O-meet.

Despite not finding my compass, it was still a good meet. Amanda and I walked around the Yellow course with a baseplate compass, and had a nice walk in the woods despite Amanda getting dehydrated. Afterwards, I went back out again and ran the Orange course. I only had to relocate once, and that was because I fell for misidentifying a puncheon over a low point along a trail for a bridge over a stream that was to be my attack point for control #8. I had a much slower time than I thought I'd have given how well I did in finding controls promptly, but that was a common complaint, so we'll have to see how I did.

The next meet is at Letchworth, over Memorial Day. We'll have to see tonight whether any tent sites are available... or for the A-meet in October.
