Only one substantial error (5 minutes) and a couple minor errors. Otherwise, just slow and deliberate tromping through the woods. Not much trotting. I didn't feel very skillful. Mostly set a compass course to a pond and rough-compassed my way there, bounced off it to the next pond, etc. until locating an attack point (on perhaps 1/2 the controls) and in. It may be the first time I've done a red course. I was satisfied. My stamina was not the limiting factor. Probably my ability to navigate quickly, and move quickly through branchy woods. I felt fine afterwards and am happy with the result.
