Things were off to a confusing start when my daughter handed me a clue sheet, which I stuck in my holder and used for 3 controls before I realized it was for Wheaton last month. I was going to give up on #3 since it was obviously mismarked (according to my clue sheet) and not where I thought it should be, but then Gary came by and said his clue sheet was right, and proceeded straight to the control. Drat you, you rascally clue sheet, I'm on to your tricks now!
Slow on a couple of other controls, not exactly sure why, something about not being sure I was where I thought I was, and when there's doubt it's really hard to keep up the pace. But I was happy with my routes to 6 and 8, which were the challenging legs, and done in good style.
The freezing rain in the morning and the rainy forecast no doubt kept attendance way down, but the weather was unexpectedly pleasant, with even a little sunshine in places, and the snow added a certain amount of challenge to the usual task of staying upright in the woods.
