Hi everyone! During this past weekend. We took advantage of the unseasonably mild weather and tried our hand at a permanent orienteering course located in the Hoosier National Forest (HNF) near Story, Indiana. And, the whole town is apparently for sale!
This is a 25-control course that was created in 1993 and lies within a rugged portion of the HNF. If you are wondering what is meant by “control”, that is the marker that you must find using the orienteering map.
You can get these maps by downloading here from the USDA Forest Service. In two hours, we ventured 2.9 miles to location control points 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23.
We debated trying for #17, but it was getting late and we nearly got lost trying to find #23!
Our route. You can easily get away from it all in this part of the forest!
