GA Navigator Cup, Red Day 2. 7.1km straight line, 265m climb. FDR State Park, across the road from yesterday ( same parking and assembly area). Another great weather day, partly cloudy and in the 60s.
A good run with about three minutes lost when I drifted way left on the 10-11 leg. Also got off to the left on 7-8 but any time loss was minimized since it resulted in a road run (which I had considered as an intentional route choice). 2nd in M45 and ended up 3rd for combined time. 6th overall on Red (out of ~20 total runners).

Red course at GA Navigator Cup at FDR SP in Pine Mountain, GA. 6.7km straight line with 250m of climb. Very open woods with good visibility. Spurs and reentrants with relatively small features ("boulders", ditches and many rootstocks). Lots of dry leaves or pine needles underfoot. 70F and partly cloudy so warm for running but great for hanging around.
A somewhat mediocre run. Lost track of reentrants on two of the longer legs resulting in where-the-heck-are-we moments and significant time loses. Got a little lucky while relocating in both cases, encountering a very identifiable feature on one leg and stumbling across the bag on the other. Also lost a bit of time when I came across control 57 one reentrant before the control 75 I was looking for - at least I admitted that it was probably my error and figured things out rather than end up with an mp. Probably could've been in the low to mid-70 minutes.
