I recently wrote about my desire to improve myself as a person ( The best version of me. Challenge issued! ). Here is a quick update.
I recently did a Bay Area Orienteering Club course with some new friends on meetup. he sport of orienteering involves the use of a contour map and a compass to find the most viable and fastest path that takes you through a sequence of waypoints.
This specific event was in the east bay. The setting was pretty nice, but the trail conditions were less than ideal. There was a lot of muck and soft mud.
The whole thing took about 3 hours of walking. It was not much of a workout. But it was a nice relaxing day.
The highlight was the view of the Sierra Nevada Snow Cap peaks that must have been 100-150 miles away.
