New map - our 5th in a row. area, though I'd call it more scrub than bush. Great Massey/Lyons course. Haven't enjoyed myself in the field for quite a while. While nav was straight forward it was also vague in places and one could be lured to far away places quite easily. But I wasn't - so i was pleased I held it together.Pleased with choices and execution and a little bit of relocating when i was looking for a flag on a minor w/c but it was on a minor dry ditch beside the w/c.
Only worry part was afterwards talking to people it felt very much like the last week before leaving for Aus champs in late September - warm a bit of a breeze whipping up dust. I suspect the area would be rife with snakes in about 5 months.
