Started with the same plan as Aragorn and ran together through the first 5 controls. We both botched #27 in the north part of the map. I should have known from the past that being very close from a certain attackpoint is the only way to have a 50-50 shot at controls in this part of the part. Finally bailed on it until we got close to C25 and then we parted ways as I gave 27 another go. Double fail! There were two or three sloppy controls of warming up by moving faster, the 38 degree rain backing off, and clearing my head then the last hour went well. So a mixed bag, but it was fun to run at Eagle Creek east in the daylight.
NB. 30 min lost on control 27. Pretty daft running with lots of drift in the vegetation on all three attempts.
