The run that ate Stick Insect; part 2 (or 3 or 4 or...)

And here is the run on which he did get... well let's be charitable, temporarily directionally misguided, since as with last weekend's dislocation, he claims to have been on paper the whole time albeit that he might not necessarily have been going in what for the remainder of the pack and for the hare, was the correct direction. Still, all's well that ends well and he made it back under his own steam, leaving the search party desperately pursuing his cries of on- on! in the faint hope that he would stay in one place long enough to be rescued. For the record, the all up length was 8.2k which reduced to 6.5k without the generous assortment of F's and X's. The high spot was the upward X at the 2nd check, which reached 206m and the total ascent was about 350m The bulk of the pack made the beer stop which was only 700m from the run site, in about 1 hour 15, by which time the short run were all safely back at the run site having completed the 4k in about an hour including a brief sojourn at the beer stop.
So, Sticky, three in a row at tomorrow nights Full Moon H3 run (of which more anon)?
