I lost it on the way to #11, got distracted for a second, and was not sure which of the intersections I was on.

Mr Wonderful:
Crazy how close the times were! And then 4th and 5th also just eight seconds apart. Usually aren’t that lumped. If I had walked any more, or not had my oops moment be into a place that was easily sorted....

BTW, I liked not having to do an "evil" version, I think it's more interesting -- I was running faster in some places because I knew I could recover off the numbered signs.

I have mixed feelings, I sort of enjoyed the evilness. But yeah, you can really open up a bit when you can mash towards a sign, did so esp. near 6 and 7.

Biggest route choice fail was: in haze, not realizing that southern loop between medium and long exits was out of bounds. I don't know how I missed that in planning, other than planning has to be like six seconds before a junction I guess.

I am super curious - they end this year on an upcoming Saturday - would they let us punch like 4-6 holes through (very short ones I think) to make a bunch of route choices, after the normal maze is done but before they harvest the corn?

I wouldn't hurt to ask.....and at that point in the season, I wonder about doing it as a bike-O.
