Time: 170:25
I'm not going to lie i've been looking forward to writing up this day. After how well day 4 went, with another late start i thought it would track up and it would be easy.

First point i failed to recognise the feature of a different control and thought i had gone to far wasting 7 mins. Number 2 the vegetation mapping was horrendous making me think i had gone to far and point was hidden behind a tree = 10 min error. Number 3 looked easy in my mind but without proper attack point got lost instantly wasting 6 mins. 35 mins to find first 3 controls of a 10km course!

Wasted time at 7 expecting to see it from the path, at 9 as i didn't have an attackpoint just wandering in, at 10 coming out at the wrong clearing. At 19 i failed to find a route through the windblown and had to go out to the path and back in. 21 followed a track instead of my bearing. Same on 23. 26 again i was not a fan of the vegetation mapping and thought i was on the hill with a clearing next to the control when i wasn't wasting 9 mins. Plod to the finish.

Forgot to take food so i had absolutely no energy and was feeling almost as bad as i was at the JK. Over 40mins of mistakes. Probably my worst this year/long long time.
