Spice Brook. Okm 7.2. Lovely area, not thick nice spur gully, good course setting. Was going OK till I met tRicky on a track. Went off the track in the wrong direction - had overcorrected left and thought I had still to turn left to 9. Lost 1.5 minutes, but worse was to come. Good long leg setting to 12 and I thought I was going OK, but I had drifted a little bit right and went through the creek right of where I thought. Result - the creeks sort of matched, but no flag. Ran out of options so ran 500m north to the road and back again. Lost 10 minutes on what I should have done. Twisted R ankle on the way to 13, so slower from there. Just got in ahead of Kim, Tony Whittaker had a similar blowout to mine on 13, except he had to run a full km return to relocate on the road.
