Red course at Stratton Brook SP (near Simsbury, CT). Lots of trail running with short plunges into somewhat crappy woods (mostly due to an ice storm a few years ago and not really represented by the map). Made too many choices to cut through the woods rather than take trails to the closest point. Missed on 6 and 9 which were both questionable features (as were a few others). Some of the bags were hidden in vegetation or deadfall. Lots of good route choices. Cloudy and 60's with some sprinkles after I finished. Probably could've been about 5 minutes faster by spending less time in thicker stuff.
Reviewed my log to see how many times I've climbed the hill at Moreau (and come back down). Sixteen times for the most recent event (some of those carrying water or control stands) and seven times for the Billygoat. I didn't go back to count for the 2010 event, but I'd guess at least 15. So somewhere between 30 and 40 trips.

Back to road running now that I only have one full time job (for another 6 weeks). A bit of a slog - need to rebuild the base then do some speed stuff. 70 and sunny.
