Red Day 2 at the Boulder Dash with Presto. Ugh. I started out by slowly spiking 1, which was my plan, but then things went downhill from there. I was simply unable to deal with the sheer number of pine trees between me and each of my controls. I got to number 2 and didn't see the flag because of the pine trees, got confused, eventually decided I'd better relocate off number 1 because I just could not find the control to save my life, and then irritatingly came back to exactly the same place and spent more time poking around looking for the control. I eventually found it, but it did not bode well for the day. Control 3 was fine. I stupidly tried to use the water on the road as an attackpoint for 4, but apparently the water on the road was not exactly where the cups were mapped on the map, so I lost another while there. The rest of the course was ok with some bobbles here and there, but I was ready to be done at control 6 out of 19. I just did not feel like pushing through the green that covered basically the entire map. Presto and I did persevere, though, and made it through the course, and at least Presto had an awesome time :-). The weather was awesome and seeing everyone at the meet was super fun and I had a blast yesterday, so all in all it was a great weekend!
