Not that good. Three major mistakes. I think I had picked a good route choice to 1, but somehow lost focus on the last moment on the trail and went way north. Eventually, I knew I had gone too far, figured out where I was, and backtracked right to the control.
Going from 3 to 4, I went over the spur, hit the trail, and went left when I should have gone right.
The worst one was 4 to 5, when I just wasn't tracking the right direction.
Lots of briars--got pretty bloody on my left arm. Also lots of boulder scrambling which is hard for me.
The good parts were that, in general (except for 4 to 5) my route choices were pretty good. Also I managed to stay hydrated and keep the blood sugar under control. I climbed some pretty steep hills, and didn't have to stop and catch my breath.
Need to get this together and focus, focus, focus for Texas. I can handle the briars--they can't be worse in Texas? And no boulder scrambling.
An interesting take on GPS. My daughter was going to meet me at the meet, but she couldn't get it on the GPS, and drove around a lot and got frustrated. I called her after I finished, and we met at the Arboretum and walked Frankie. She wanted to know how I had found Rockcrusher without GPS, and I told her, I looked at the map.
And thanks to Mary, I managed to download into Quickroute.
