First Red Course ever. Went much better than I anticipated. Course was 6.4 km.
1 - Ran down road, shot from intersection to point.
2 - Took trail and road majority of way. Ran to clearing and past point into ungodly vegetation. Trapped in there for awhile, could not maneuver. Took me 32 minutes to escape and find my point stupidly located on side of trail.
3 - Took trail and then followed clearing. Grabbed point next to boulder.
4 - Took clearing trail straight up to water tower. Drank water.
5 - Jumped on road, took first powerline trail by mistake. Decided to turn left and shoot off of corner. Found it to be impenetrable. Went back on to road. Looked for massive man-made structure, did not see it. Shot off of road sign instead and found point.
6 - Took trails mostly straight to point 6. Shot further down and came back up along hill edge.
7 - Ran straight out to perpendicular road. Ran out in search of stream, found point instead. Pure luck.
8 - Followed river up and shot off corner.
9 - Ran across river and straight to 9. Easy.
10 - Got mixed up with cliff and brought me too low. Noticing trend. Circled back around, was confused but found it hidden. Clues were not very distinct.
11 - Straight to 11, stone walls helped.
12 - Started running straight to 13, then realized and ran back to stone wall. Shot off of edge and ended up too far south. Followed contours up to point, I had been in that area in previous years. I always get confused, but I remembered how it confused me and how the land worked.
13 - Straight to 13.
14 - Way to far SE. Ended up in wrong clearing. Shot from one clearing to next. Used corner to get to point.
15 - Ran through our camp grounds and said hi to Will.
Finish - 0:40
