Sadly that's about how much I ran off bearing from 1-2 except then I hit a track and, thinking it was a different track, turned that into 90 degrees.
We were wondering how you lost so much time to no.2. It was almost the same leg as the M course kids had. Looks like you did alright on the long leg to 5. Which way did you go?
West down the awful gully, past #9 then followed tracks through the finish and start to the OOB, north to creek and then follow the yellow to the creek the CP was in and follow that up. I didn't really consider the northern route that Hadrien took but he beat me by 20 seconds.
It's kind of surprising I beat anyone on #2, even if it was Paul Jarrett. Perhaps he also encountered his wife and daughter on the way like I did and stopped for a picnic (given he only started a couple of minutes in front of me, I think I'd already passed him by that point).
Not at all surprising was coming DFL on #6.
