The best terrain in Israel   Leave a comment

On Saturday I was mapping in Odem forest, and confirmed to myself that it is definitely the best orienteering terrain in Israel. Take the sample on the right, multiply it by about 50, and you can imagine what the final map will look like.
This is only a draft of a small area (250m across), but almost all of the forest is similar, with very few paths and only a small number of man-made features. This is the sort of terrain where, if you lose contact with the map, you should cut your losses and head for the road (there's one to the west…). The first event here, probably in late 2010, will be something special. Till then I've got a lot of work to do.
