I could do a simple 20-second course and people will still find ways to get lost. I try to make the courses longer and more interesting.

Walk the course. Learn to look ahead.

I don't remember this course, but it's even easier to follow than the upcoming one. I see one place in the back where it's possible to get confused, and that only if you're not paying attention. I'll stand on my original statement -- I'll bet we had very few newbs get lost on this one.

Wow this course looks great. If there was space in the AM I'd jump in M1 for the competition

C'mon, Randy, the PM group means you can sleep in and still make the event. :)

Is it too late to add my son as a co-driver in the AM group?
