Liked seeing your handicap choices for the first control box. Wasn't sure which CPs racers would drop with a 2-3 handicap!

Thanks for coming out!

'Bent and I crossed paths a few times in the race. The time he impressed me the most was when we arrived at a T intersection where Bob, Mick and I all turned right and ran toward #8, which was a short distance along the trail. Faced with such compelling evidence that turning right might be a reasonable plan, 'Bent came to a full stop at the junction and reviewed his map. Good to see he is training hard to be the primary navigator for his Snowshoe Raid team!

That was one point where I lost focus, and was determined to relocate rather than chase the leaders.

As for dropping CPs in box 1, my plan was to do E,G,D,C, but the slope was so nasty and D so close to the top that I went to B vs C. In hindsight, EGCD might have been best.

If you ended up dropping D I think it was the best choice, I wished I had continued along to C then up to B as I lost a lot of time sliding down the hill trying to get to D (or alternatively continued to C and then dropped down to D).

No, I did EGDB and back. I got D on the way up. Do you think the climb from C up to B was any better than the climb up to D from G?

Nicely done.
I must not be an orienteering type because I keep wanting to play the comment on my guitar to see how they sound.

I did EGDC, dropping back down after getting D. The climb up to C (which was about 1/4 - 1/3 up to the top) was much better than D but it got steeper from there so I don't know. I tried to come at D from an angle but could not get up fast enough so ended up having to straight up and had no roots or trees to help me... it was not pretty.

Somehow I feel I had something to do with that. Or AG! ;-)

I wouldn't say you get the credit. I'd say it's your fault! ;)

...and your *new* SSR teammate won the O-cup.
