Race Evaluation

Flying Pig XI, Day 1: Miami Whitewater North Green


1. No attack point
Bad route choice
Took a chance
Underrated difficulty
Unused to map
First thought was to go up trail, but then decided to contour, a big mistake. Crossed indistinct trail without identifying it; wandered til I found control
3. Bad route choice
Should have gone higher on ridge, maybe even up to top.
5. Could not relocate
After bashing thru green to fence, wasn't sure where I was. Since it seemed to take a long time to get there, thought I might've drifted right, so went straight S only to find myself on the wrong side of the drainage with the ruined fence. Recognized that quickly, though, and went straight to control
7. Frustrated
Contoured to seasonal stream. Hill ahead looked to big, so I hesitated. Once over top of ridge, expected to see bag, but didn't. Stood still not knowing which way to go. Went a little right, then left, then puzzled cause bag was way down reentrant (but it didn't occur to me then that bag was misplaced).
8. Could not relocate
Not realizing I was leaving from a spot much lower on the hill then mapped, I didn't have the flexibility to adjust. Purposely stayed high (because it would be easier to see depression from above), but never looked to right (I was probably within 30m of the bag) because I was sure it had to be to my left. And for same reason, went downhill a long way before turning back up.
13. Read map too late
Hesitated at corner of dirt lot past building because I incorrectly expected the depression to be easily visible from there. Looked at map and saw that it was simply a little further ahead.
