OCIN WARS/TROL meet at East Fork South end map; Green course set by Joe Roman. The beginning of the course was good but then controls 7 and 8 were in the NW flats. Undershot getting to the trail on the way to C7 and then ran into Stephanie and together we found C7 hidden behind a tree in the ditch. C8 was difficult as there were many more root stocks in the area than are mapped. Again Steph helped me out and went on her way. C9 and C10 were good and I was surprised to see Steph on the other bank of the creek from C10 as I approached the control. She caught up to me as we were approaching C11 which was in a well under a fallen tree. I fell in the creek on my way to C12 and tried to warm up by running but completely failed on C14, again wondering around on the flat, this time looking for the bag on "fence". Gave up after about 25 min and made my way to C15, the finish, and some warm, dry clothes.
