Green Course at Camp Friedlander. Challenging Course set by Mike. The first 5 controls were a series of short technical legs. On my way to #1 went by an unusual looking building on the map, figured out it was a castle. Onto #6 which I went past the two BB gun shooting ranges and went up what was marked white on the map. I followed the creek and then a gully right to the control 6. From 6 I cut up to the road to a castle then to a pool. From the pool, I cut over to the spur to control 7. The only way to #8 was down a steep gully and then up a very steep hill at the gully/creek junction. From 8 I went to the grave yard followed the road until it ended. Then I went downhill on a spur that was quite open. It dumped me at the road entrance into the camp. Perfect! Crossed over the creek on the road and cut over to the spur that had #9 on a rootstock. I went past the ruin right to the rootstock. Ran into Matt about this time. Continued up to control #10, Matt and I met about the same time at the control coming from different angles. From 10 took a long cross country leg over several re-entrants and then down a steep hill. Matt and I were close to each other to control 11. Crossed the creek and took a gravel road to a water pump for control 12. I went on to #13 a large tree in the middle of an old creek bed. Onto the go control and then finish.
Very hilly course on a hot & humid day. Enjoyed it - thanks Mike
