Better day. But still not a good one.
Never quite got my shit together on the way to 1 and kind of fell over it. Made a stupid, stupid error on the way to 2 (had a plan, threw plan out the window, wandered around the bush cursing).
Overshot 3 after undershooting it. Complete map-reading fail.
Had a freakout on the way to 4 when it looked like what was supposed to come after the control (flattish, open-scattered trees) before the control. Probably the only time in recent history where my anal-retentiveness about double-checking rocks on the map was actually useful.
Did the leg to 5 as planned and surprise, surprise - it worked. Probably the only leg of the day through bush that I actually did well. Also the only leg of the day where I didn't second-guess myself. Even though there was a huge surprise boulder on the ground that wasn't on the map. I actually managed not to be waylaid trying to find it on the map. Bob said it threw him for a bit.
Faffed around at 6 on the rocky clearing on the edge of the circle.
Got confused by "yucky but good visibility" that I was expecting to be "plantation" and muffed my run to 7, after sustaining a pretty decent pace most of the way. Was happy with plan, but failed at the end.
Easy to 8, Easy through the plantation to 9 and finish.
Did nearly 2km less than yesterday, so an improvement, but really wish this was a three-day event (non-cumulative!) so I could have another crack at this map while the learnings are all still fresh in the brain.
