  2. Hi guys,

    I've never done this before, but i'm keen... have a rough idea about navigation and map reading through my mountaineering background.
    What do you think, this event could be good for a start or i should look for an other one?

    Thanks
    Milan

  3. This event should be fine for newcomers as well as more experienced - there are control sites that are easy and some are harder. But as long as you can map read and follow tracks - quite a lot of the control sites should be achievable.
