oof. i can only sugarcoat that first control as a display of persistence. turns out i'm pretty dependent on nearby linear features. eventually stumbled across that double boulder just to the north and then lined it right up. the rest of the course was decent, especially by comparison. mostly just (attempted) straightlining.
started the watch late. what a doofus. chopped up the file to get attackpoint's automagic split-link to work, but all the controls all show about 10s early. feh.
oh geez, i expected bad, and it looks even worse. i don't know what planet i was on. and there were some other pretty poor splits, but i guess they just felt good, relatively speaking. time to hang up the compass. until this weekend, at least.
and (and! and allow me to wallow in coulda woulda shoulda a bit longer) if i had gotten the slow-to-typical five minutes on the first control, i would've been in the top ten! and been within spittin' range of sub 1-hour. bah!
