NAOC WRE Long @ Burnt Mountain
Wow, that was impressive terrain. Felt very challenged by it, went slow and carefully. Felt a total turtle to the first 3 controls, just going slowly and staying in contact. Had some misses in the control circle, but generally clean. Strung together trails basically the whole way on our longest leg and think that was a good choice for me.
After the long leg, could tell Louise had gained, but was actually encouraged she hasn't yet caught me, so kept up the fight. But on the next medium-long leg, I lost a contact to a hemlock or pine branch. I hoped for a little bit that it was just squidged somewhere funny in my eye and I might get it back, but nope. The whole world was funny looking after that. For some reason, things looked sparkly, especially in the first 10 minutes as my eyes adapted most rapidly to the new situation.
Louise caught me a few controls after that, and then I kept up the chase, which wasn't that hard as mostly thereafter a road run and a bit of a control pick. Happy with the result, would have liked to see if I could have stayed ahead if I had kept 100% vision.
