Especially for a pair of 'old' codgers :)
Can't help but notice that your GPS track shows 48 in the wrong place - that could explain why so many people had trouble with it!

Uncle JiM:
They didn't get 48, was the only one they missed

I'll get to that in my race report. My torch battery had run out, and I didn't think my backup battery would get through to morning, so I was running on a very low power setting. In this poor light I failed to see the other small creek under the purple circle. I think we found this one, but it was thickly wooded and very hard to search.
We should have spent longer to read the map carefully, but as it was only 40 points we decided to head off in search of the next 100 point control.

I see. Great essay, too. Did you really count the spiders? I only noticed a couple...

OK, maybe 75 spider webs, but I certainly saw big spiders in many of them.
