A revisit to the Flying Pig XII middle terrain. The access road to Timberhill is actually paved this time, with new parking lots by the cabins. There were again a full complement of courses, but Blue seemed too long for my bum knee, so I tried Red. It was just about the right distance, as my knee held up at a fast walk/hike, very slow jog pace until the last control. The course had a middle distance feel with lots of controls and shorter legs. I didn't have much trouble with the navigation. Had a mistake at #13 (64) where missed low (right) and found 54, maybe 30sec lost. Hesitated a little attacking #9 off the trail bend. I needed to set up my compass/direction better there. Had some inefficient routes to #14, 17, and 22. Also could've executed the last portion to #16 a little better. Since all the good competition ran Blue, it's hard to gauge my performance. Overall, it was a nice day to be out in the woods.
