24c shoes: Icebug 2020
Cool Creek Park, Indianapolis. Lots of trails. Stream crossings were forbidden so there were many legs with long routes - actual distance per km of course was longer than typical. Also took a longer trail to avoid some lowland stinging nettles. Controls mostly were not super difficult, but lost at least 5 minutes on #12 - I went right to it, within 5 meters and didn't see the bag hidden in tall weeds. Decided I was not far enough upstream (since what was mapped as the side reentrant was deeper than the main channel, and curved the same direction as the stream did farther down. Spent a lot of time upstream and down before finally coming back and finding the hidden bag.
