OS Get Outside Trackables
« on: July 23, 2015, 02:21:03 pm »
Read this Ordnance Survey (OS) blog entry: Visit link

There are 47 trackables out there with some of the 270 surveyors.

Seems like it won't be easy to find them - but it's a good idea and hopefully some of us will be lucky  :)

Our surveyors are carrying 47 travel bugs around with them right now.

As Groundspeak 'sell' the codes in blocks of 50, I wonder what's happened to the other 3 codes?  ???
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!

They've now released a map showing the location of the surveyors so that you have a better chance of discovering the TBs.

But I can only see one marker on the map  :o Is anyone else having this problem?
