Merge

I’m planning to merge YepSport and Yablog back into one weblog. Why? * Orienteering is still my principal extra-work activity so I’ll be updating YepSport throughout the year. * I don’t update Yablog too much these days as I don’t do all that much interesting these days – this ain’t university any more, some of… Continue reading Merge

Events

Yes I should have been at orienteering events on both Saturday and Sunday. But I forgot about yesterday’s event until too late (I’m not used to events on Saturday!) and realised on the way to today’s event that I had binned both my O-shoes (fell apart in Sweden) and my running shoes (fell apart at… Continue reading Events
