Another sure sign that winter’s on its way – the start of the SOC street events. First up on Thursday night was Dibden courtesy of Jon Forster. Jon had reduced the area covered from last year and lay down the gauntlet by stating that he thought it may be possible to get all of the controls (lamposts). I made a better start than last time: remembering a head torch and not getting too disorientated in the small pockets of woodland. My plan for the controls ahead kept changing and things started to go a bit pear shaped when I missed out 19. When I eventually came back to collect it I was starting to run short on time. It didn’t take long to decide to drop 6 and 2. The clock shows me 13 seconds late back but I put that down to following an unmapped path round the back of the shops rather than the one to the car park. You can see my route on Google maps.
