NEOC meet at Norwottuck. Did a good bit of the green course, then quit when I got too pissed off.
and my route
up to #9, which I never found, in the process rapidly losing my enthusiasm. Walked in, went home.
I suppose it didn't helped that I'd been out earlier hanging four controls on the yellow course, and for two of them I wandered around a bit trying to figure out where to put the control -- the lesser of evils approach -- because the map so totally sucked.
And I suppose it didn't help that I then found out we were using an old version of the map.
And I suppose it didn't help that I knew there was a maze of bike trails around #9, and a lot more laurel than mapped.
Who knows where I was. I put up the 305 track, adjusted to go through 8 (that was correct even if the clue was wrong), and and adjusted to where the trail meets the power line (end of the 305 track), and not adjusted in between. Shows I went right by it the first time, but I have no idea.
On the plus side, because bitching get old real fast.... :-)
I had a pretty decent run up to 7, a little more energy than has been the case recently, ran a little more than expected.
And I kept the white and orange courses from being routed through the fish and game club's firing range.
