Of course, you have to wade through the 3' deep stream crossing first.
Actually, by the end, I had reacquainted myself with the highlands swamp pits. Reminded me of old times (many times down that road). It's not that bad unless you submerge into light ice in March (or, you don't mind the smell during the rest of the year).
An idea for the future - maybe work in a picnic break.
It would be fun but why turn it into a competition? But if people wanna race there are lots of enduros. I do this for fun and just to simply make it thru. I'll leave the racing to the pros like you.
