Control 15, edge of vegetation. Dog in background, climbing vegetation. He is a special boy.

This control is part of a permanent orienteering course  on Allestree park. I have been mucking about on this park since I was a kid, it is also part of many of  mine and Billy's regular runs. So armed with local knowledge and nav skills honed on a recent mountain marathon, finding this control should be easy.

Wrong. It took lots of milling about and wandering around the woods until we finally found it.


  1. Reassuring to hear that even the more experienced guys can go awry occasionally - makes me feel a whole load better about our efforts!
    Billy looking a bit demonic these days?

  2. Matt; I think you are confusing me with someone who knows what they are doing.
