Must have been a blast having seen the map - 76 or so points in one near continuous control picking exercise. No "driver's cramps" on 89 to show for it after? Consider adjusting to 16 mi :-).

No driver's cramps b/c I walked, sometimes briskly for over 90%, and only light jogging on easy downhills. Carried a good lunch and plenty of fluids. Afterwards: treated myself to a sumptuous dinner and brew at the PC Tavern in New London!
Map was awful, I printed at 1:7500 without control magnification, so I could not see the circles very well. After lunch, Alar gave me one of his copies, which was printed (.pdf'd) at 1:15k and then picture enlarged to 1:7.5k,, which was great for navigation (circles very large!), but his contours were thin and became invisible in some places, which confused me at some control locations. (Thought the control description was funky, but it was the map!)

I had a nice clear 1/75 by Fed Ex. 16 miles and all those points certainly deserved a PC Tavern visit! Haven't been there in more than 10 years.

I bought a new color laser printer HP Laser Jet Pro MP252dw. Pretty inexpensive. Ink is expensive thought, but it came loaded with a reasonable set of cartridges. Very happy so far with it. It uses the home's wireless. Send me orders if you need some printouts.
