Based on winsplits, looks like the same guy, one Andrew Donaldson. He seems to have lost a ton of time on the butterfly loop, and then spent an hour on #20 before walking in with Sam from there.
Andy is a better runner than orienteer... frequently comes to CSU events.
Yep, that matches up. He was moving pretty well, able to go a bit faster than me, such that he and Tim were able to get away at the end of the first map. But he and Tim had different butterfly forks, and I saw him on the way (I thought) to our #8, looking like he might be missing it. But the splits show that he was there 25 seconds ahead of me; I'm quite surprised that I didn't see him. Then I got solidly ahead on the next leg, but his big loss came on what I thought was an easy control, although it might have been more a matter of butterfly mischief than navigation. Meanwhile, I had no idea that I had gotten ahead of Tim in the butterfly, to the tune of four minutes. I had thought that I caught him at #15, but he was actually catching back up to me.
what I thought was an easy control
I guess they are all easy if you go right to them, but I thought that one (your #8, my #11) was relatively difficult, obscured by green from below and on a pretty dinky rock. I thought that might be one that some of the less experienced folks would find quite difficult.
Ah, ok, misunderstanding on my part, and now things make more sense. Winsplits apparently has the splits permuted to the B ordering, but when I look at it in Attackpoint I can see that it was #8, not #11, where he had trouble. I headed up the small trail toward #8 and saw him crossing in front of me heading to my right at high speed on the larger trail. I attacked from the trail junction, but he was at that point making good time toward oblivion. That explains why I didn't see him at the control, he didn't get there 25 seconds before me, he arrived 24 minutes later. It was a tricky control, though my guess is that it was a long time before he started wandering around in the right area looking for it. Unlike your #8, my #11, which I did think was easy.
Agreed. That one (my #8) was pretty trivial. AP shows me losing time on my #11, perhaps because I was walking anyway, and also because I slowed down as I was getting close, both because it was pretty thick from below (where I was) and because Ken and another guy were thrashing around well off to my right and I was wondering just a little what they were up to, even though I was mostly confident I was doing the right thing. Still, I went more or less directly to it, so I thought of it as a spike.
Same one I had trouble on, I think I cut uphill a little early and misread contours in the thick before moving to my R and coming around to the tiny boulder...
AP also shows me havinf an error on #2, but that is because I went more direct cross country and the trail option wide was undoubtedly quicker. But I executed my route just fine so don't really call it an error...
AP and winsplits have different error algorithms. Winsplits totally missed my 2 min error on 5, although pretty hard to see perhaps in a leg that took me 27 min.
