What’s “Orienteering,” You Ask? Check Out This Video And You’ll Find Out Quick!

by Greg Wright

One of my Google news alerts popped this video up yesterday… and it’s fascinating!

On December 3, the Cascade Orienteering Club conducted one of its events at North SeaTac Park, and one of the participants put a video up on Vimeo.  Says COC’s website:

If you like being outside and exploring nature, then this is the sport for you. Using a map and your powers of observation, you’ll navigate through a course of pre-set checkpoints. Beginners are welcome, and it is not unusual to see entire families orienteering, either together or on different levels of courses.
