Mmmmm and got quite confused out there at times. Psyched that I actually started my Garmin (on the way to the first control, actually) so I can have a look in a bit, will try this Quickroute thing? Gather I have to photo/scan the map? May have to wait to access the scanner at work on Tues...
Not great controls:
3- was unsure if I had gone over the first big nose, which made me hesitant the whole next bit, then the bit on top was very vague, was about to enter into a panic when I found the control
4- went to a different, parallel, nearby cliff first, which isn't on the map...
6- took the road, really shouldn't have been scared of staying in the woods, lots of stone walls to keep track of location
8- scared by the vagueness really close to the control, but pretty ok
11- stood in the pit (a nearly enclosed stone wall) right near the control, confused why it wasn't mapped before figuring it out...
13- eep, likely my worst control of the day. hit the marsh in the depression right on the way, but then lost it with the cliffs, kept trying to put things together and drifting, had to relocate off the trail to the north
14- long leg, slow at times, being careful to stay in contact
16- hit the line of cliffs right above on the way there nearly perfectly, but then hit the trail and ran the wrong way, argh!!!
18- Neil pointed out a reentrant nearly under the line that would have been great to use, had I noticed it. I ran down to stream, not that fast...
Really good fun, really good orienteering! Thanks much to Marie and Mike and Boris and Becky and Anne-Louise and anyone else!
And... QuickRoute! Way cool. Most striking- I was super-duper close to #13. Painfully close, argh!! Think I was just looking down instead of up and went right by the control... Also my mistake to 16 make a lot more sense now, was not on the line of cliffs I thought I was.
