HVO local event at James Baird SP. Nice open woods with good contour detail. Tried to focus on reading the terrain and not using the compass. Was reasonably successful except on two legs which crossed flattish areas and a check or two of the compass would have been helpful. Probably lost 2 or 3 minutes on each leg. Also lost a minute when a contact got brushed out by a branch and I had to put it back in (fortunately it stuck to my face so I was able to find it). Didn't push the pace too much, so half level 3 and half level 4. Very nice weather (especially for November) - low 50's, partly sunny.
