Training Doug Theis on 07 Apr 2002

Training Update

April 7, 2002 – We continue to prepare for Planet Adventure, now just two weeks away. Doug, Steve, Bob and Leslie spent a day in the Hoosier National Forest. We spent the time scouting, orienteering as a team in an IndyO meet, and mountain biking. Scouting helped us with some race planning. The O-meet was at the Story course and helped us with some specific nav skills and helped build our confidence. Thanks to the Indy Crossroads Orienteering Club for hosting the meet. The biking put some fire in our thighs and a nice mud stripe up each of our backs. We had big fun.

Feb 10, 2002 – TRG went on an all night hike at Morgan Monroe State Forest on Friday, February 8. Leslie, Steve, Doug and Bob hiked 21 miles in nine hours, then worked on the fixed orienteering course until dawn. The night was clear and it was great fun. Paddling, off-road biking, scootering and skating will be our areas of concentration in the next few weeks.
