Summer Series Glen Dye 24/7/19

Results

From comments at download and earwigging conversations it seems most folk who took on the contour only map challenge for Long and Short Tech enjoyed the novelty factor and surprised themselves by managing to get their head around all the squiggles more easily than they thought they would and Katrina said she actually enjoyed the lack of distracting paths as she saved time by not deliberating distracting alternatives before choosing her routes.

In fact, if anything, the penultimate control on the gully proved the most problematic where all those helpful squiggles suddenly disappeared and counting contours and keeping tabs on height gained, or not, became key.
Some folk approached it by creeping up – hill to the left, boulder, boulder, bearing.
Some aimed deliberately high or low for the right sort of distance then turned 90 degrees and trawled down or up to it.
Some had prior knowledge of the area and went looking for the earth banks that run either side as they are quite large and noticeable even at a distance.

Thanks to my control collectors – Bob, Tim, Zoe, David, Carol and Norman – and to Ros for picking me a lovely big pot of blaeberries. (Pudding Night tonight in the Scott-Lawrence household!)
