QOC Fountainhead Far West - Red. It rained the whole day. The course was physically difficult, with a lot of climb, and rain-saturated slopes. I did not go very fast, particularly at the beginning, and had no real motivation to push things, given the conditions. I left my glasses in the car (on purpose) and had to keep wiping off the magnifier, sometimes just pushing it out of the way. Still, solid navigation, with only one real mistake: going to #4 I somehow ran off the big ridge and had to spend some time figuring out where I was and how to get back up on it. Other time losses were due to looking for the control too early. That happened 3 times: on 4, 7, and 9. I think I just wasn't seeing the map clearly.

To and from the remote start, in the rain. I started down the trail towards the start and then realized I had forgotten my e-punch. Kind of surprised there wasn't a clear and check at the remote start, because I know how easy it is to forget that. Also, there should have been water at the start. Maybe take about half of the water that was down at #114 and leave it at the start instead.

Edit: I hear there was a clear and check at the start, but it was off somewhere near a streamer. I also hear there was water nearby. Given that we only found the start because of some jackets hanging on trees, it seems unlikely that we would have explored for those other things.
