looks like you never even went into the circle for #2. This was one that I skipped, although I heard horror stories about it afterwards. Do you think it was mis-mapped?

Hey David---I actually typed a long answer to this a few days ago, and then lost the entire thing with some computer problem and I just didn't have time to answer.

I can't say for sure it is mismapped. When I aligned the GPS track, I adjusted using "hard" features to the south, such as the curve of the road and the spot where the road splits around the guard house. I did bend it over to the open area NNW of 4 where it forms a little finger pointing upward.

My best guess is that the flag was in the wrong spot, but I really can't say for sure. The track really skewed as I was adjusting it. It could also be that the map is distorted. I just couldn't recognize anything going up there. The stream seemed wrong. I couldn't find the clearing with the linear bunch of trees. I did cross over some "stuff" before the control, but I'm not sure it's the same stuff that is under my track. It would probably take an afternoon of checking to answer this question.
