UNO Camping Weekend: THE MEGA

jima

1. In the interest of full disclosure - I did not complete the entire course - went to #93, then cut down to #168. When I enteredd my splits with just the cutover time between these controls, it made it look like I'd blazed thru that center section (which I hadn't). Arbitrarily added 2 hours to the cutover time, which made things look a lot more realistic on the graph...
2. Lower back is bothering me, too much slining gear around yesterday. Camelbak with 2 liters of water seems to be making it worse.
3. +01:00Got too far left and saw the larger marsh. Relocated quickly, but need to settle down. If I keep on making stupid mistakes, it will be a long day.
4. See Rick DeWitt for the 1st time, see him multiple times later.
5. +00:45Went due north out of the control into the brroader reentrant with the trail, realized my mistake and cut back right. Lead Rick into it.
6. +00:20Over run a bit - I'm look at the veg boundary with the small pines on my right, instead of the large pines on the left.

17. +01:00With Greg Walker, off to the rightand wandering around the small marsh ENE of the "uncrossable" marsh, he recovers quicker than I do, I still think I'm in the right spot even though there's no control...
18.
19.
20. +04:00Too far right, get too low and flounder around for a while.

26.
27. See train of Ross, Wil, Joe coming into the control, they head out south to the trail, I opt to for a more direct line and get to the waterstop first.
28. Lot's of company at the waterstop, see Rick DeWitt again
29. Try following the train - keep up for a few controls and even do respectably on some of the legs in relation to them....
30.
31. 2d in the train up the hill, this won't last long...
32.
33.
34. Mike Waddington comes chugging by - lose sight of him within 3 controls

40. Was here yesterday on the recreational Red course - doesn't look familiar though. Back up with Daniel and Ross, they must have had some problems
41.

44.
45. Still just behind Ross, leading Daniel around the end of the marsh
46.
47.
48. Ross and Daniel go up and over the hill, I go around to the right to save a contour - didn't work..
49.
50.
51.
52. Down first Clif Shot - cramping up a bit in my legs
53.
54.
55. See Ernst coming in - we were supposed to have the grill going and be cooking at 11:30, wonder if he'll make it back in time to do that??

66. Try going along the top of the cliff, get hung up in a lot of think stuff.
67.
68. +01:00Spend some time loking around the boulders in the saddle halfway between 67 & 68.
69.
70.
71. Legs cramping up going up the hill, back is bothering me more.
72. Cool! Approach from up top, reach down and pull up the control and punch with my foot.
73.
74.
75.
76.
77.
78. Concerned about this one. tried beelining, should have gone along dotted marsh on right, then approached from rock face and boulder. Find the control-in-the-woods in spite of myself.
79. More cramping. Water level in camelbak seems to be holding up. Wonder how far I'll be able to go. Start looking at cutover points.
80.
81. Train with Randy and Nadim catches up to me, hang with them for a while
82.
