Race Evaluation

Possum Trot IX:

dWelsh

1. **Quick recollection/estimates for now. As I expected, we'd head North. Took 1st trail & cut over - more direct.
2. Followed others
+00:45
Fell in behind people leaving control before I realized I was being stupid
3. Did not check features en route
Ran too fast
Read map too late
+04:00
Overran turnoff to spur. Should have realized that I'd passed big clearing.

11. Bad map reading
Bad distance judgement
Lacked confidence
+30:00
A forced skip. Had even relocated back to the trail. But I never went downhill far enough to see the lower tree stock
12. Did not like map
Confused parallel features
+05:00
Initially just overcompensated & went up wrong parallel reentrant, but the broken ground resembled knolls
13. +02:00Went high over feature, when below would have given better view. Marking may have been high also.

22. +08:00One of few times I went on a compass bearing & as has been usual, then screwed up. Went uphill, curled back & tried to make map look like where I was
23.
24. Bad route choice
Followed by others
+02:00
Went through green parallel to trail instead of going back to trail
25.
26. +02:00Overran this big time - following beaten-down grass instead of noting distance.
