Yay , back at Cambus !! Love it. Ground was nice and frosty so bogs / marshes were a pleasure.
Came prepared (almost) today with my thermal , gloves and headband, forgot control description holder though.
Nice big long leg to c6 , took the more left option along the Cambus canter track by the power lines then peeled off to pick up the ride that continues all the way up the slope to where the control was with a ton of boulders crags and green surrounding it. Was happy with route and was pretty quick but annoyingly from the way I came into control circle from above was tricky to spot control in mass of boulders so lost time a bit there.
Tragic nav to c7 . Was with Ellie so there was not enough map checking and too much speeding it down the slope. Dropped to much to quickly , both thinking we’d reached the ride junction near the control already but actually had gone like only half way . Milled about for a while confused then spotted a chunk of dark green , realised where I was , felt very silly and carried on to the control. Lost a good bit of time annoyingly.
Rest of course was all fine , got pretty fast as ended up in a train of blue runners but nav was solid.
Finished and straight for a cookie from scotjos :))
