Road trip! NSF Adventures puts on great any order, as many as you like on foot navigation events down in southern Ohio. Lake Hope State Park has big hills (>200 feet), about the 3x the worst we've ever made you climb here in SE Michigan. There are at least two carloads headed down for their six hour February 4th race - post up here or email smoc.mi{at}gmail.com if you want to join a car pool.

Since SMOC is hibernating for a little while, we'll share some events from other groups. The Georgia Navigator Cup features four races in four days over MLK Jr. weekend. Friday has a forest sprint, Saturday and Sunday feature races similar in length and design to a normal SMOC weekend (except in new-to-you terrain, aw yeah!), and Monday features a wild extreme version, with many mini challenges on different map formats - trail-less maps, photos, USGS, maps with blanked out sections, satellite, maps of thin corridors, regular park cartoonish maps... Flights to ATL can be found for $150 ish, even on airlines that let you bring luggage.
