No attack point
Did not follow plan
Unused to map
|Took the left trail out of the start, but hesitated when I got to the junction by the green. Took the right fork instead of left like I intended. Basically, I wasn't used to the 1:4000 scale yet and didn't think I was already at the trail fork. Ran along the trail S for a bit, then saw the stone wall to my left and also a control. Went to check it, not confident it's my #1, but it was. Brendan had caught up to me already.
|Back over the stonewall. Then along the trail W. We ran past the fork where I should've taken a left. But corrected quickly when the trail started bending to the N.
|Brendan took the trail while I stayed in the white forest. Pretty much straight to #3.
|Keeping the stonewall parallel to my right, with Brendan leading me straight to the control.
No attack point
|Back on the trail. Got a bit confused with the intersections of trails and stonewalls. Joined by Samantha. Off the trail and along the greener side of the stonewall to the control.
|Went right of the redline, over a couple stonewalls, and onto a trail. Trying to keep B in sight, but in the process missed my left turn at the trail junction. Instead ran wide right in the direction of #14. Finally realized what happened when the trail curved W and past a stonewall (just E of #6). From there I slowed down, looking but not seeing the control. It was well hidden when vegetation.
|Quickly out to the open field, along the edge to trail head. Then E along trail to left at junction.
|Dogleg back out to trail. At the T-junction, went straight down, over stonewall, into control.
|Over wall, then along another straight to control.
|Stayed a bit left of redline. I thought running was easier on the flatter ground. Slightly slowed by the light green around the control.
|Across firebreak, on a compass bearing. Mike S. passed me on the way so he kind of led me to the control.
|Just left of redline back to the firebreak. Originally planned to turn left and use the trail to #12. Then changed my mind when I saw 2 other guys going straight (right of the green blob).
|Out of the trail, right at junction, then attacked from the bend.
|Along W side of stonewall. Over wall. Hopped on trail till the bend. Then straight to control after jumping over big wall.
|Mostly straight out to the field. Saw Mike S. just ahead. Then straight thru the white parts to the trail, which led me to the control.
