Didn't get the GPS started until after the 2nd control. :-/
Course dubbed "No mans land" Some control locations that noone in their right mind would visit voluntarily... others with some questionable routes. However, the controls were all placed well on the red course.
I had a bobble on the way to 4, where I went too far east instead of right up the big reentrant between the hills. #8, I tried to take the sliver of white, and then avoid going through the reentrant.... which doesn't work. The reentrant is the only way to stay in the white. I felt like I had a pack of cats on me the thorns were so brutal. Stuck to trails for the rest of that section.
Setter ran us through an unmapped section of the park. Not the best terrain, so I'm not sure it is worth mapping, but I navigated it OK. Came out at my ideal spot.
Perfect weather. Some new folks, and some new regulars!!!! Fall in Minnesota.
