Race Evaluation

Fort Rock: Blue


2. No attack point
Confused parallel features
After crossing the last trail, I got a misconception of where I was, and made a brief detour to the south.
4. Bad map reading
Failed to see a trail junction on the map, and consequently turn the wrong way. Realized it before too long, and in the process of correcting I went right by #14. Came into control just before Karen.
5. Read map too late
Pretty good until the end, when I went left around the crossable marsh south of the control.
6. Did not plan ahead
Did not check features en route
Took a chance
Underrated difficulty
Read map too late
Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Bad distance judgement
Not paying enough attention to my dirction, and lost contact. Thought I knew where I was, but was apparently wrong, since the expected trail never showed up, and I eventually found myself up at the power-line ride, over at the houses. Came back south on the road and cut in between a couple of houses. Saw somebody behind me early during this leg -- maybe Ken? and Boris came into the control right behind me.
7. Took off ahead of Boris, arrived at vicinity of the control just before him, and spotted the control behind a rock before he did.
8. Blasted straight, looking for marsh, with Boris just ahead, but headed for the right rock when he went for the wrong one.
9. Followed unmapped trail that fed into indistinct trail about 250 m left of the straight line. Followed that to uphill grade, then cut right, went by #5, and followed ridge most of the way to the control (nice unmapped trail up there).
12. Boris showed up as I was leaving #11, but I'm not sure if he knew whether I had found the control yet.
13. Same thing, crossed paths with Boris shortly after I left control. Was worried approaching the control, but it was behind the first rock that I checked.
14. Caught back up to Karen as I got near the control (she presumably got ahead of me on #6).
16. Bad compass work
Was awfully far to the left when I hit the stone wall.
