Mid-Atlantic Champs at Pine Grove Furnace, PA. Hosted by SVO. Really fun day. Addie and I took the QOC bus, arrived around 11. Sunny and cool, great conditions in the woods. On Brown, there was a tricky choice right out of the start, with the control just on the other side of the river but the only bridge was at the start, with a long road run to the control. Then some nice medium-green forest legs with trails of various visibility.
I missed a trail junction and was unsure of my position approaching #5, but I came straight to the charcoal platform, visible from below. Then going to 6 I decided to drop down to the marsh, which was soggy and hard going, but offered a nice attackpoint from below. Unfortunately, I misidentified the depression, which looked like the nearby charcoal platform from below, and went off looking, but eventually came back to it, losing a couple of minutes.
Still, first on Brown by 2 minutes.
