Mr W planned a Middle course to practice hills. Thanks!
I had a 10 min head start to place flagging flags, and then syd was behind me picking them up. I found it very stressful to try to make sure I was placing them correctly and stay ahead, which ultimately got in my head I think.
Placed 17 on the way to 3.
I saw syd while i was flailing in circles to find the boulder at 8 while she was on the way to 5. Had to go up the hill to reattack from the trail.
hill 9-10 was brutal and trail was very faint, but it worked.
11 I wasnt condfident i had on the right cliff, but my map had a big dirt stain.
12 boulder was tiny! so i continued looking for another for a bit before backtracking to place the flag.
13 - Found the mainmade object but mistook it for the ruin. I continued searching and eventually found the right ruin, but started to get worried that syd was on my heals. Scared a bunch of dear.
14 - i misplaced, and then syd came up behind me, so we continued on together.
16 - skipped, ready to be done.
17 - split from syd, but was headed to 1 accidently, so I had to climb the hill to meet back up with syd.
Nav was not the best, and I'd prefer to have time to check Im placing things in the right place.
