Orienteering race 51:20 
Love the Lakes Day 2. Another gorgeous day in a beautiful forest.
Sloppy bearing on 1, heading north rather than NNE, so was a bit to the left and had to relocate. Bad start. Intended to stay high and take yellow ride but drifted downhill and when I saw the road was attracted to it like a magnet. Never saw the yellow so had to stay on road. Encountered the yellow ride the second time when it crossed the road and starts to take it, but noticed it was extra climb, so I dropped back to the road intending to take the trail around. Cut the corner to the trail, passed the cairn and the short wall, the never found the trail, nor blazes. Read terrain, passed a couple rootstocks with a small clearing and continued till I came to the big reentrant, then lost confidence in my location. Headed down the spur and then noticed the trail which I must have crossed a second time without seeing it. damn. Bailed back uphill to the yellow and instantly relocated on the cliff then straight to control. Lesson, don't trust any trails, even big ones.
Ran back out to the yellow to 3. Saw Ethan heading up the spur. ☺️
Lost another 20 sec on 4 inside the circle, losing touch with the knolls, but used the rootstock to find the cellar hole. The rest went well except for the leg which crossed the path to the start. Two groups walking on the oath unnerved me and I felt compelled to cross the trail and get out of sight which gave me unnecessary climb and frustration, but I found it with only about 10 sec lost. Took the road by the spillway, dropped down to the terrace and followed it to the knoll.
Coulda done better, but enjoyed the woods, a lot. Great arena with the pavilion, stone amphitheater, and view of the finish chute. Great weekend.
