|On bearing from trail junction over charcoal pit but hit thick laurel where it shouldn't be per map. Shifted L around it and in.
|Tried to use indistinct trail but think I missed and struggled through med green to corner of rough open. Saw Jim H and a couple he was guiding coming from where I thought the control should be so assumed they couldn't find it there. Turned L to look but nothing looked right. Went over to where they had been and spotted control.
|Disaster. Headed across rough open to hit large trail but got on small trail not realizing it. Headed W then turned S on larger trail. Hit a T-junction? where open should have been. Checked control on a rock - #31 - not mine but with e-box must be other course. Finally kind of figure problem and head E on big road to junc; SE on trail up and over to open and bag.
|Trail around to indistinct and bearing.
|Major disastor - Followed stream/marsh up to indist tr to main trail. Figured I'd bop over to indistinct and follow around to bag. In but no trail. Thrashed around for a while in laurel and saw main trail to locate. Headed back W, fighting laurel some more. Saw bag on knoll in middle of thick laurel. Fought over to it - #35. Must be other course and on little knoll W of 6. Head E thru laurel to main trail!!! same place as 5' ago. Walk along (that's all I can be bothered to do at this point) to marsh and in vague direction control should be. Spot it in gloom of more laurel.
|Follow indist to main tr and saunter in.
