What? Spies only route?
Errol Paul and I pretty much followed where you went up through the woods...we started in your direction any way...
now we did cheat to number 8 by not starting at the path and schrinched under the railroad bridge to 1...but that's another story!
Oh, that's what I meant, #1! I did it last so I had it in my mind that it was number 9...
But you know what they say... there are three types of people in this world - those who are good with numbers, and those who aren't :)
As for #9, I went in at the right spot I think because the creek was draining out to the river at that point. Unfortunately, I ran pretty much straight west, so I had to cross all those drainages and came out about 100m south of the pond.
Lots of fun, though. Thanks so much for putting it together.
