just starting to log positions in gps,

having to use what three words to find locations [then find same spot on gps screen and save] as it wont recognise grid refs,

just note what three words wont find location if starting words with capitals,

Just note what three words won't find location if using Yorkshire words.
Lucky it's not voice activated.

That’s odd Phil, I only used one map to plot the course!
I’ll have my map for reference if needs be. Edit: Sorry Phil/everyone, I’ve realised my mistake, I took the OS explorer map out off roading and picked up my Landranger map when road riding…. I’ll bring both maps :oops:

Just a note for about fuel: the nearest petrol station is on the A21 ‘BP - Blue boys’ and the nearest station in and around the waypoints is in Wadhurst.

I’ll be at the pub from about 2pm Friday, see you there :D

Bike fueled up ready,

May need to reference the map laurence as garmin topographical maps show most of the trails but I have no idea what's legal,
