~~~ Tip of the Week ~~~

A WALK IN THE WOODS
by Michael Webb
http://www.TheRomantic.com/

It was on Thursday that Athena told me “I have something special
planned for us this Saturday.” My mind started racing. What could
it be? I was excited for the rest of the week to find out what
she had in store.

After breakfast on Saturday we hopped into the car and she drove
Ashton (our 1 year old) and me across town. She wasn’t going to
any of the places I thought out in my mind. We ended up in one of
the many parks that our region is famous for.

When we got out of the car she opened the trunk and I could see
that she had packed a backpack when I wasn’t looking. Then she
handed me a “clue.” It was a compass. I quickly figured out that
we were going orienteering. I had mentioned a long time ago that I
heard they had orienteering competitions in the area and I thought
it would be fun.

The county park puts on a short orienteering (where you find your
way from one point to another using maps and/or compasses) class
once a month followed by a course you actually take. In the course
we selected, there were 7 labeled posts scattered throughout the
woods and a map that guided us to each one. The goal was the find
each marker and return back before all the other teams. The cost
was only $4 for all three of us to participate.

Athena had packed bottled water, snack bars, trail mix and other
goodies in our bag. We had a really great time working together as
a team reading the map and searching for the not-so-easy-to-find
markers. Even with Ashton strapped to my back (he loved it) we
came in first place. Next time we’ll try the more advanced course.

Find out what programs your country and state parks offer. You might
be surprised.
