QOC Oregon Ridge - Green
No trails printed on the map. I guess Francis was feeling extra evil today.
Mostly had distance judgement issues today. Going to 2, dropped down to the stream when I lost track of where I was on the hillside (I was far too early) and went back up and pretty much right into the control when I could see the little cliffs across the way.
The other problem was 7 - got muddled up on the long trip there, actually got back into the area of 1, and even then got messed up again in the light green and many little unmapped holly bushes and a tiny unmapped dry ditch that I confused with the much larger one near the control. I did finally find it. I believe this was one of the many areas I had trouble in during the Mid-Atlantics last year - but overall I actually did better here minus the trails. Go figure.
