Brown course for US Long. Having a bit of a tough time. Left trail too soon to 1, then got on the wrong side of a patch of green and fell in a hole up to my knee. Otherwise ok. Wet and muddy to 2, then a little low and has to go back and up to 3, which seemed to be in the wrong place. 4 ok, going left and through the campgrounds. 5 I was headed right way, saw the bag and headed in, but then lost it and had to hunt a bit. Lots of trouble on the way to 6. Stuck on a slippery bank for a while crossing stream, tripping over vines, caught in briars and fell in another hole. Then control was badly misplaced, too far from river, not on a slope, and in white instead of green. But otherwise ok. Hamstring popped again just as I was punching. So pretty sore but thought I could walk. Long way to 7, seeing many more reentrants than mapped. Then thought I was right on for 8, but couldn't find it. Looked for a while, getting more and more sore, then just headed in, picking up 10 and 11 on the way in.
