I hope that I have some good runs and make good route choice decisions with as few errors as possible

Look most forward to

I am looking forward to some excellent courses and running on maps that I have never seen before. The terrain will be different to what we have in western Canada and I hope I will not need to look out for bears. I am excited to visit this area of Norway, the people, the villages and towns, and I will spend some time hiking in the mountains. Also there is a knitting museum near Bergen that I want to visit.

I heard nordvestgaloppen is very technical. I expect to improve my orienteering technic. Voss has a very beautiful view. While doing orienteering, I enjoy forest and nature.

Ambitions

I am most looking forward to running in the norwegian terrain and making amends for my poor performance in Halden in 2003.

Look most forward to

I first visited Norway in 1968 when I travelled to Narvik I have always wanted to come back to Norway, as I love the Scandinavian terrain. I returned briefly in 1975 as a tourist but that was before I started orienteering. I began orienteering in 1983 and have been hooked ever since - but couldn’t travel overseas until after 2001 because of work and family commitments. I certainly hope to come back to Norge again for orienteering.
