Laramie Daze 1 - Moose Outlet - 6.2k
7 hours of driving from Moab, quick tent setup @ Yellow Pine, throw on O-clothes and time to mass-start race!
With no time to warm up, went out super-chill, just following the pack to the first control, really. To 2nd was around people, but I wasn't comfy finding the control, a misread cliff broken by line looked like an indistinct trail to me - Aiden M. led the charge more correctly, as he did to #3 too, although my spidey-sense was saying it was at least nearby there.
Off to #5, distracted by a cliff on the *wrong* side of the reentrant - c'mon, that's no good. Caught there by Eric and Nick who had a miss to #2. Trailed behind them to 6, 7, 8, 9. On the way to 10, Nick went through some green, Eric took the opportunity and put the hammer down, all of a sudden oodles ahead. Nick overtook me to 11, I cruised in behind him after that.
