Comparing my routes to Evan's I see that the around-low route to 7 (on the road, through the start/finish area) would have been faster. Cutting up to the road more directly to 2 would have been better too, but I was trying to skirt the logged area.
Made it home on time from Sacramento via Detroit, after the pilots told us in DET that too much fuel had been loaded on the plane and they had to burn some before we took off (otherwise we might have landed early).
First flight went well, though Delta's offerings for lunch (we were in first class on points...yay!) left a bit to be desired.... I watched Rocketman and the first part of Bohemian Rhapsody (including the Mike Myers cameo). Great music!

Trails (sandy and rooty; occasionally rocky) at Point Lobos Reserve south of Carmel. Stopped to take in views of Pebble Beach, birds (egrets, cormorants, gulls, brown pelicans, and some type of hawk tbd), sea otters, sea lions, and a harbor seal. There might have also been some guillemots around (one of the viewpoints or islands was named for them), but we're not sure whether we saw any.
Then driving toward West Sacramento at rush hour where we're staying tonight before traveling home. Phone batteries running down and accidents ahead meant we decided to stop at Starbucks to refuel the phones (I got a large iced tea too). Will proceed when delays are shorter.

US Sprint Champs at Cabrillo College, upper area. 1:4000 map Sprint 3, shared with the other older classes as well as the under 12s, 2.0km, 55m climb nominal. Sunny and temps in low 70s
Out of the start everyone climbed the stairs (purportedly to the start triangle, though I don't remember them saying that to me), and it took me that long to find the triangle and the first leg. But then I settled in and took my time looking at the legs before taking off.
I guess I lucked into the good route to 14 (over the crossable wall) after I saw someone else go there...checked my map to be sure it was viable, and managed to finish 1st in F65, a bit ahead of Janet F (who won the other two days). No super difficult traps or upper/lower tricks if you looked closely.
Edit: My watch showed 20:11, but the splits printout showed me at 21:05. I'll adjust it if they load splits to AP and I need to match things up.

Club sprint relay, EMPO "8-pt" team (16, really), leg two (between Janet F and David H., who started in the mass start about 12 minutes after I had started). A few controls where we had raced in the morning, then we crossed a pedestrian bridge over busy Soquel Ave and did a few butterfly loops before heading back uphill to a few more controls back in the northern part of the map.
Went to the end of the wrong building on way to 8; looked at the tempo control first in the center of the butterfly, and was a bit confused heading from 10-11, so lost seconds on those three.
Finished and downloaded, but no splits were available, so we'll see how we did, maybe, at some point. I knew David would head out in the mass start so didn't worry about finding him at the end to tag.
