Nice course, easy for me and very open and runnable. That means a better than average time for me but it did not prevent me from making some mistakes:
CP1: Might have done better taking trail to vegetation boundary due S of CP1.
CP3: Sloshed through the thicket to W end of ridge. Should have gone S, the way I went to CP2.
CP4: Veered WNW instead of SW. Should have at least glanced at compass.
CP13: Not confident at all about distance estimate. Need to start counting steps or at least pay attention to the actual distance.
Finish: Slooow. Needed to sprint.
Tons of deer, they seemed to know that this is a no-hunt zone and took advantage of it. Fun to remember portions of the 2010 MNOC AR Tune-Up.
