WIOL 6 @ Lincoln Tree Farm. Usually I do well here, not so much this time. Started off poorly when I chose a route to 1 through the part of the map that in reality is a giant impassable pond/swamp, so had to double back and lost some 30s. Also lost 30s when I inexplicably ran right past 3 without seeing it. Then things were good until big problems on 10, about 3min lost. Finally, about 1.5min on the last control. In the end Peteris got me by a minute, though I easily had the speed to win it had I made less mistakes. A good course, though I thought a few controls were a bit bingoish - namely 9, 10, and 17. It also struck me that the vegetation in the older clearcut areas on the eastern side of the map is noticeably thicker than last time I was here, which has a few consequences, all of them bad. Those areas are now much less runnable, much less visible, and much more pokey, plus the brush piles - the only navigable features in those areas - are much harder to discern.
