Yes, I know about the service building, but didn’t want to swamp Igor. Probably will get it for the next meet. (Igor has a new map for next week, is doing updates for PLRA, and a stitching project for me....)

We relocated this meet at the last minute when the original park canceled with ten days to go. I live near Maybury while Jen is a healthy hour away, so I chipped in to make the relocation more manageable.

The easternmost bonus trail was a communication error - I sketched it in as better than nothing, Igor added the trail from my track, and I sent my purple pen markups and the corrected OCD to Jen but forgot to tell her to delete the bonus items (that shadowing trail, the trail that is the paved Link trail, the pointy bit on the end of the very SE turnaround). My assumption was she would use my file and not transpose my circle corrections after scouting, and then I didn’t even think to ask to peek at the final PDF - I cried when I got my hanging copy Sunday morning. So all my fault, well intentioned but poorly executed. Also some of the x features were roughed in and need to be official. And Igor noticed a few trails I didn’t so I’ll have to hike around and get everything sorted before the fall. Also we have a few cairns/stony ground to catch up as well.

No problem. Maps often need updating - I was just surprised because everything had seemed really good until I got to the southeast corner. Then I hit the building and the trail in very quick succession.

And I certainly understand changing maps on short notice.
