Iltarastit Kivikko

Missing the control circle on #2 from the large stones about 75m away, +5 min. Then too large a detour to #5 and about +4 min there. Otherwise mostly OK. Maybe +12 C and glimpses of sun.

Iltarastit Solvalla

As daylight disappears Iltarastit moves to Sundays. +11 C or so. Too nervous right after stepping off the path towards #1. Then quite tentative towards #21. The long compass-legs 5-4 and 8-16 look surprisingly good.

Itärastit Salmenkallio

Zigzag around salmenkallio. Easy pace, but 8-9-10 looks pretty crooked anyway. Maybe +13 C.

Itärastit Paloheinä

Decent running for a change... I decided to run without compass on this easy map, and this seems to sharpen the mind and senses. 5th overall until control #3, but then dropping to 9th on #4 and 10th at the finish. The route choice to #4 is maybe too safe, driven by the lack of a compass (see also #11)..

 

Itärastit Ämmässuo

OK running in the easy terrain north of 4/10, but more south 6-7 and 8-9 in particular were slow and difficult.

This is an ISOM2017 map, with new and slightly different use of map symbols.

Firmaliiga Kattilajärvi, E-baana

Half-decent on odd controls, 1, 3, 5, 7, and 8, Finish. Problems on 2 turning (+3min) the wrong direction, then see-sawing back and forth close to 4 (+6-7min), a large detour to 6 (+6-7min, the straight-line route choice is too hard).

Firmaliiga Haukkalampi, E-baana

Just before #2 I found a wrong control and circled back when just 50m forward was the right thing to do, probably +5 min or so.
Then down from #7 in completely the wrong direction and another +5 min or so.

Kiintorastit Ylästö

North of Paloheinä across the border in Vantaa: Kiintorastit Ylästö.

Itärastit Latokartano, 7k

Autumn-season 2017 opening for Itärastit. Choosing where to go up or down the steep hill to hit the control is always hard, here problems at #6, #7, and #13. The edges of the map both around #10 in the south and around #15 in the north are fairly simply drawn and in need of an update. Warm +22 C and humid.

Iltarastit Luukki, 7k

Time to start the autumn orienteering season - itärastit starts this week, and there are three firmaliiga events starting next tuesday.

OK going on #1-#4, then quite challenging legs and controls on #5-#7. Had no good plan for finding #10, just wandering in the right direction, when a clearer plan via the stone lower down the hill would have been better.
