Classic brown day 1 at Cooper Lake SP, Coyote Run area, temps in the upper 50s and cloudy. EDIT to add nominal stats, 3.7km, 81m climb per the map.
Took safe trail route to number 1 to get into the map (and find the start triangle). No problems with vegetation, map or navigation until I missed number 6 (code 232) and ended up almost 200m north, at number 203, which fortunately I realized was the next control. Easy enough to run due south to 6 and then find 7 again, about 4:00-4:30 later. Ate a Gu on the way to 8 and did okay the rest of the way.
The woods within 50 m of 7 had a lot of people going a lot of different ways so that didn't help much until I saw the bag and number.
First (and last) of 1 in my age group. Compared routes with Dick Neuburger after; he had messed up control 5 and was an hour 12.
