    No, but what was the context?

    I didn't know Orienteering is now a Federal offense! Foot in mouth

    There is a lot of urban crime these days.

    Wasn't really part of the plot.  One of the FBI Officers was Orienteering with his daughter.  The word Orienteering was used and they showed a control flag.. not much else.

    I believe in the book The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo a Swedish orienteering club was recruited to look for a body in the woods.  I don't remember if that made it into the Swedish or American film versions.

    It's this episode if anybody wants to see it:

    Orienteering is mentioned a time or two earlier, but the actual scene with the control is at the very end.

    I had a quick look. Anybody know where it was shot? or have a guess?
    I'm guessing the west side of the Hudson River, between the GW bridge (95) and the Tappen Zee (Gov Cuomo) bridge (287), many easy access points off the Palisades Parkway.
