One of the great things about orienteering is being off-trail. I see so many interesting things while running through the woods that I wouldn't just hiking on a trail! I really "see" the terrain around me now.

Have you done any orienteering before? If so, where and how much?

I've been orienteering for about 12 years and really enjoy it. I first tried it in northern CA to help with my kayak navigation skills, but enjoyed it so much that I've continued ever since with all kinds of orienteering. I especially like night courses!

What other kinds of outdoor activities do you participate in?

Sea kayaking, hiking, camping, cycling, etc.

How did you find out about the Central Virginia Orienteering Club (CVOC)?

    Thanks for all the hard work that went into putting together the orienteering outing. Please pass that along to the other organizers .... I KNOW that we can't begin to imagine all the behind-the-scen­es effort that went into it ..... and you guys always had a smile on your faces.
