After a morning spent running around taking care of parking, the shuttles, and registration, I headed off on my course. I love these woods! Running through them is super fast, and I decided I would rather be cautious and avoid large blowups, so I headed out to have a good time. In general this worked quite well for me, although I tended to have trouble on legs where I had to compass bear up a bland-ish ridge (4, 16, and another one that I forget right now), but I was having such an awesome time out there that even losing 5 minutes on the third to last control didn't really upset me. And anyway, when will I ever get a chance to check out such an awesome field of knolls again :-). Fun day!
