the most detailed control by control account from our Swedish
friends from team Rockrunners at And even if you don't speak Swedish
you should look at this via Google translator, which adds a certain
something to the account, as per this extract "On the way
to the start we had to map the size of an oil drum lid as usual.
But this year there were already all checks drawn on the map which
would make it easier for everyone to find just the control that
coordinates described. We got on the bus that would take us to
the start which was about 20 minutes away up the valley. We trudged
over to the man who would launch us and after a quick pee so we
squeaked up time."
