30 Years of Orienteering
My orienteering career started 30 years ago today, June 9th 1990, when I first went to an orienteering event of my own free will. I had been sent to a few races by my army unit, but I didn’t know that civilian or sport orienteering existed. Then I saw an ad in the newspaper, several […]

Orienteering (and other sports) events are now officially allowed again, and the first actual race was in Odem Forest, probably the most suitable for this time of season – there won’t be much orienteering here in the heat of summer, as usual.

Friday the 13th
Our annual Rogaine was planned for Saturday, 14th March (today), in the Ramot Menashe area, about 20 minutes from my home. I’ve been working on it for a year – mapping an additional 25 kmē of terrain, planning, marking controls, updating the old part of the map, and more. As the week progressed, most of […]
