Had a really rough day. I had very little confidence on a majority of controls. Had major stuff ups on #7 and #8. I didn't pick a good feature from which to leave the track on #7 and was just high enough to miss it. Then lost a few minutes trying to figure out where I was. Glen caught me about the time that I figured out where I was (he had started 2 min after me). 7 to 8 should have been a really straightforward leg, but tried to run to hard to pass and leave Glen. So I grossly misjudged the distance (I finally noticed that it was 1:7500 when reading other peoples AP posts) and went looking for the control in the N creek. Of course, Glen ran past me as I was looking in the wrong creek. We continued to play leap frog all the way to the finish.
I consistently too low and also had difficulty reading the mapping of the bush. I'll do better next time!
