The last Iltarastit event for this year. A bit wet in the forest after all the rain lately. I did have my garmin-watch but it somehow managed to forget this run completely - so a hand-drawn route instead.

Around +12C with a bit of rain before the run. Large 1:7500 map. Almost ran past both the 1st and 2nd controls...

A bit of night orienteering on a small area with lots of controls.

warm, over +20C. My Garmin watch didn't get a GPS-fix at the start and it took until #3 for it to start recording. No major mistakes but not so great running/fitness.

new map (for me). warm and sunny.

A big error on #1 and a smaller one on #2.

Not so great on #2, probably searched for it too high up the hill and also too much south. After the shock on #2 also some problems with direction towards #3.

No major mistakes but slow going on the 2nd stage of Jukola this year. The not-so-dramatic errors were: #2 has a 90-degree wiggle just before the control - my route to #7 was OK but very slow through the green/tick aprts - then no worries until #15 where the 'safe' choice along the road was […]

Hot weather +27C maybe and not much wind. A bit of a loop around #2 - otherwise fairly steady going.

Fairly easy course in Palhoneinä.

1:15000 map with hand-drawn controls, and old-school punching on paper (no EMIT). A bit of rain and +11 C or so.

Major problems finding #3 and then also out of #3 towards the road...


blogivirta.fi
anderswallin.net -

A loop around #3, where the yellow 'channel' wasn't very clear or easy to recognize. Then punched at the wrong control on #7

Stepped off the path towards #1 too soon and circled around the wrong hill, probably costing +2 minutes or so. #5 is also a bad split - the plan was to use the paths and not go down to the lake - but bad execution resulted in a visit to the lake and slow climbing […]

Maybe unnecessary wiggles on #1-#2 and #4-#5, then no good plan for how to find #7 so back-tracking from the path/ditch instead. About 45-degrees wrong direction out of #9 at the end.

Short E-course. Maybe a bit nervous on #1 - then mostly OK until #7 where the direction out of the control towards #8 went 90-degrees wrong due to some unmarked trail.

2019 orienteering season opened. Not too warm around +5-6 C - with a bit of snow/sleet in the afternoon - welcome to Finland in May
