are better than one leg when crossing streams!
But no you shouldn't have run around, Martin, you should have taken Pete Gorvett's route across the stream, where the map has white forest on one side and no bramble on the other: 30+secs quicker.
You're right, on both!
Yes, it looks like I would have been about 30 secs quicker had I used Peter's better route across the stream.
I took that route and was pleased to see my mapping of the bramble (last autumn) was still accurate. :)
