QOC Greenbelt Red. Great weather today, what a fine day to be outside! Lots of downfall of various vintages in the terrain, in addition to the greenbriar (which is mainly stubs now but still occasionally strung across your path), all of which slowed progress some. I had a very clean run, and the only way I can see to pick up time would be to do it faster. I could have been faster in two ways: (1) on the rough orienteering -- too much time checking and rechecking my position and running hesitantly even though my position turned out to be right; (2) finding controls, particularly in the ditch networks -- I don't have a strategy for these, just check the ditches one at a time and hope it turns up sooner rather than later. What I did right: solid attack points, even if they were 150-200m away; approach linear features broad side on; take trails whenever possible.
