The ending to my winter camping experience was an Orienteering event at Manassas. I looked forward to it, and planned to try an Intermediate course. How lost can you get on a battlefield? Hmmm ....
Post-event assessment of why the day didn't turn out as I had hoped:
- I was mentally and physically drained from Saturday's hike.
- Likely, also a bit drained from my first winter camping experience.
- I should've reviewed my "how to use a compass" notes
- And likely should've found a way to settle my brain and "warm-up"
