JK 2012 - Middle WRE
1st control was a bit of a distaster, messed around for a bit before finding a control in a clearing and realising I was lower than I should have been. Bad start. 2 and 3 were good, knew what was going on. Missed 4, not so much because of the unmapped veg change, just ran up the reentrant too far thinking the control was on the hill beyond where it really was, my own fault. 5 was ok but going to 6 I don't really know what was going on. Found a re-entrant which looked like it was before the control, continued on and things made more sense and the control materialised, not too fast running.
7 I took a bearing but ended up a bit right on the hill. Ended up a small bit high for 8. The running to 9 was tough, wet track along the marsh but found it fine, and so was 10 ok. Bit of uphill to 11 and then onto the spectator control. Pushing here on the climb. Went through the gate and took a quick gulp of water. Decided to take the track to 13 to give the body a break, I like to do that sometimes if I can. Got the next few grand. Thought the boulder on the hill at 16 was very visible from a distance:-)
Then a big error, wrong direction leaving the control which lost me a couple of minutes. Ended up way left and had to come back. Climbing the hill to 17 I just hoped the control was over the other side. 18 was grand and so was 19 although the re-entrant was smaller than I thought it would be. Back uphill to the crossing point and under the hill to the last control before the downhill finish.
