Orienteering race 1:09:41 [4]

NAOC Middle Distance. Crapola. Was having a great race until I got distracted on #5 and lost track of my precise location. Missed the control, spent a couple of minutes looking for it and ran into a cliff out in the open with a control on it. I tried to use it to relocate. According to my map, during the rain and fog), there was only ONE small cliff in the area. From there, I should have been able to find my control about 100 m away, but alas, no control. 28-29 minutes of searching later, and having found 6 other controls, I finally came upon my #6 and backtracked to #5. I was annoyed with myself--until this morning when I discovered, under good lighting, that the course printed the "5" right against the OTHER cliff in the open area. OHHHHHHHHH, there was ANOTHER cliff. I just couldn't see it on the map. No wonder I couldn't relocate. Real bummer.
