QOC: Fountainhead West. I messed-up a lot on this effort. It was in the 80s F and humid from the weeklong rains. Being overweight had a lot to do with my slowness. Getting used to full leaf cover was also part of it. The errors I made were somewhat basic. For #5, I was low. For the largest error, on #8, I stopped one ridge early and it took me a long time to realize it fully. For #12, I went around some green to the left but didn't correct enough, even when I could see the bending of a large reentrant. Two of the 4 water stops had no water. I did have fun but it was a little discouraging. Afterward, my family ate a late lunch with the Onkst. We talked about using Fran Uhler for the next Bumble, and re-mapping that. It's intriguing since the last I saw of the area, it was very dilapidated with fallen trees blocking trails and deep ATV ruts filling with water. Dave assures me the authorities have fixed it up. I went home, mowed the lawn and took a shower. I'd weighed-out the lowest in a long while at 199lbs.
