McKaig Night-O, Green course, in some of the woods I played in as a kid ;-) (granted, it was private property then and I wasn't really supposed to be there...I grew up on the side road off King of Prussia Rd just ENE of control 5).
Woods were open for the most part with some green in places but not much prickly stuff. Enjoyed woods for the most part; course had a few doglegs but nothing too aggravating; besides I never saw very many people out there until near the end when Wyatt and his companion caught up to me (and led the way into 10-14. A bit off to the left at 4 but found the rootstock (among others); and a bit befuddled by the bonfire near 12... I could see the control but wasn't sure where the bridge across the stream was with the tent and bonfire there. Didn't particularly enjoy the steep climb to 8 but managed okay by zigzagging on the way up (and thinking about climbing up out of the streambed when I was 9 or 10 :-)). Control 14 (ruin; actually a chimney) made me smile remembering when my playmates and I thought it was a witch's tower (it could be seen from the field behind Roberts School when leaves were off the trees).
Unfortunately, although I visited #2 and am positive I punched (I waited for the lights because I didn't know whether I was waking up controls, as one of the earlier starters), it wasn't recorded on my stick. I don't know if Vadim will fix it; I told Mary Frank (working epunch) I did visit the control. My split (I took my own splits) was 3:13 from #1.
In all, a fun outing! Did a drive by of the old homestead before it got too dark...looks good for almost 61 (my family moved into this "new" development in 1957).
