    Unashamedly stolen the idea from the Col Baggers thread. That looked like great fun to me, but there is a dearth of Cols near me, so it was a no go.

    Still, I liked the idea, but came up with a type of target more easily found in my part of the World...or in any part of the country... Trig Points.

    Ideally ones you've sought on the bicycle, but I won't be sniffy if you happened to be driving past and leaped out the still moving car to snap a prime example of trig pointness.

    I'm having my shoulder injection tomorrow, but after a day or two of recovery I'm going to go hunting myself. It seems to me a good motivation to go for a ride, an ongoing purposes, and the rides become more epic as you bag the easy local ones and start moving further afield.

    Much bloody easier in some cases..
    I'm a VHF/UHF only man from the hills, I tried HF once and got lost under a pile-up of rather rude Continental opos, I moved to 60m and got.......
    nothing:laugh:
    I can work into the Lakes area from nearby but involves some tasty hill climbing and cyclocross (mid summer maybe).
    I'll hopefully make my annual jaunt to the Lakes at some point, missed last year :sad:

    Not managed any Trig Points yet, but on my first gentle ride out in a month located and bagged an OS Bench Mark in the next village.

    This type denotes also the presence of utlilties below, in this case presumably some phone cables.

    Presumably! Is that the best of your detective skills?
