Ok, so you can follow others. So I could not find start on the map or #1. I was more focused on following someone who knew what they were doing but I could not keep up with the lead. I came close to asking someone if we had got to #1 yet :)... 0 navigation.
I took the right side of the spur to #2 and reconnected with a few others at the control and saw a few leaving #3 as I was getting there. After that I was on my own until #15.
In a group of 5 or 6 from 15 to 22 but only one of those was navigation savvy. I split off the road early to #22 and no one followed. Pretty sure I got there first.
Caught Ron Bortz after the go control but decided not to pass him as I already blew a sub- 3 hour time.
So I download and Sandy looks at me and says 'you didn't skip a control.' It takes a bit to sink in an I reply 'It never crossed my mind.' I was so worried about messing up my navigation and being overtime, the thought of skipping a control just didn't register.
Overall very happy with navigation. Could have definitely cut off some major time if I was in better condition.
Great day in the woods. lets hope I can walk tomorrow :)
