The start to fox 3 was really bad trying to navigate through the tough Torslanda terrain. Bad choice. After that the run to fox 4 on top of tough mountainous terrain was good.  Then, going from fox 4 to fox 1 seemed difficult with hard to spot running tracks. It took a while to get on a track. Once found, it was good run to fox 1. Then, it was cruising until the track that lead on to the right way. A big mistake was made for not crossing a small stream. It costed more than 3 rounds of transmission for fox 5, trying to go beyond the houses but never seem to find an entry point. Shifting gears to fox 5 once on the right track. There was another competitor relaxing after catching this fox. As it was 1.5 hour event but we had a delayed start of 15mins. Final dash to fox 2 was something to catch in the last transmission.

The screens were well hidden and the approach to most of the foxes was unidirectional, i.e., there was usually just one way to get to the fox.

ps: Radio transmitters are called foxes in this sport of radio orienteering.
