Not my best race ever... by far.
Started out OK, tried to use the veg to guide my route choices. Chose white to #3... no white to be found. Chose white and stay high to #4... no white to be found, but spiked the control. :-)
5 was easy enough but had a little bobble on 6, and then the wheels fell off. I went .75 of the route to 16 from the shared control. Retrace and attack 7 and 8 with only minor difficulty. I think they could map a few more knolls around 7. 9 went OK, and it went OK the 2nd time also... I left nine, thinking 10, but looking at 11. I realized my error, tried to find 10, but then became confused as to whether I had truly punched 9, or was it 10. I found the boulders at the mouth of 10's reentrant, and the rocky ground to the north, but couldn't find 10. I ended up going back to 9, then 10, then a poor route to 11. I had a few good controls, but then bobbled 16. I think doubling the scale from one week to the next did my noodle in. Hobbled in..... crap.

Control retrieval. Scouted some of the low territory on the way to control #4... Next to the lake was difficult.... pretty thick, but it opened up significantly as you travelled south.
Picked up the far south-western control. Scared up a big turkey. went to 5 and 6 and ran across the better 1-1/2 of MoBiz and walked to control 9. Picked up one more control on the way in.

Noontime run from work. Got out before the heat came in. Felt pretty good, but even though I had cushy shoes on, I still had some leg pain. Shoulder was being a bugger also. Anyway, good to get out for a bit.
