Discussion: splits protocol

It appears that you (and Niels) used the protocol of the first split in the splits list being the leg from 17-1, the second split 1-2, etc. Perfectly reasonable. Susie was the first to post on green and I did what she appeared to do: the first split was from 1-2 and the finish split was from Green 13-1). Since red and green had a number of common legs (red and green points 1-6 were the same, and red 11-17 were the same as green 7-13). It took me a little while to figure out how to compare splits with you.

I think I was either first to post on Red, or else Niels and I posted virtually simultaneously, so I'm glad we picked the same method. I've been a bit concerned that somebody might just start with whatever leg they did first (e.g. 3-4), and get things out of whack. There's no real remedy on Routegadget, it's kind of a pursuit race.

There was an interval there where only Niels was up, but maybe it was brief. I had seen that Susie had posted, and based on her write-up and the time pattern it was pretty apparent what she had done.

You and I were not all that far apart for the common legs. I think we were about 3 minutes apart, 2:30 or so on #6 which I flubbed pretty badly. Niels, on the other hand, is magnificent!

Well, right now I can sympathize with your chronic toe problem (but maybe you finally overcame that).

Adapted to it more. I did get the toe fused a few years back after I had broken it right into the joint. On balance that was an improvement, in that it no longer hangs down, and so takes less abuse, and I can now walk barefoot on friendly surfaces, which was not really possible before. However, the foot is compromised still in other ways. Sorry you whacked yours!
