Overall, pretty solid. I hesitated on #4 because it took me awhile to find 4 on the map. Leaving #4, I nearly tackled Pete W, who was jumping out at people as they rounded a corner. I heard him as the people in front of me went around the corner so I wasn't surprised. But I didn't slow or dodge him, thinking, "he'll move out of the way." He didn't. #14 was just off the trail in a reentrant. I looked into the reentrant and didn't see the flag. I slowed and went a little farther on the trail, then left the trail and turned back toward the reentrant. I got very close to the flag before I finally spotted it: there was no reflective strip on the flag. #18 I misread the power line as a trail. I didn't find a trail, so looked at the control description and saw that it was on a power line pylon.
