Nice afternoon off work, not as good weather as it had been! Damp and cold. Worked a long half day then headed over, drive was really quick. Most people had started earlier so had a lot of the Forest to myself. Lost 80s to number 13, couldn't cross the stream were I wanted to and then was in an area of broken ground and lots looked like they could be small pits. I looked around a bit then decided to bail out and reattack. I usually take a long time getting to this stage. On the way out, I found the control. Felt a bit tired at times, could have been straighter on a couple of controls. Maybe being a bit more precise with my rough bearings?
Plan had been to practice distances and saying out loud how far stuff is away, but got a bit in the racing zone when I knew it was fast. Happy to beat Dave and Nick.
