... unless Jeff Osborn told you he was hopelessly lost and needed to be shown where he was on the map, is looking at his map to relocate near 15 somehow not a flagrant violation of the rules?
I’d say lucky.
But this is very ironic. I saw Jeff on the way to the first control, right before I got to the crossing (left route). He told me that he couldn’t find the bridge and I decided that either he was a) lying b) mistaken or c) correct. I decided that he had no incentive to lie, and couldn’t possibly be wrong about the bridge being there (and although I thought it unlikely that a carefully indicated route with a bridge would no longer have the bridge, given the adverse conditions, I expected it had very recently washed away.) So, therefore, he must be correct.
I decided to take the next best route, which was traversing the dark green covered beaver dam. I have no idea how long this took, but I am sure that it was too long as there was a lot of foundering, swearing, and splashing.
But, upon further consideration this must be a conspiracy. After all, both of you guys are in HVO, right ? ;)
Those socks were NOT COTTON I hope.....
I like thin polyester scoks (preferably not white) for O.
