My nearest tile not yet done is about a 85km roundtrip crossing 3 national borders with a maximum elevation f somewhere between 400 and 500m.
All the rest involves a roundtrip of over 100km.

My nearest unvisited tile is less than 1km from home.  I really need to get a kayak.  Still got a few coastal tiles 30km away that I should be able to wade to.  Just need right tides.

The nearest tile in my max square is 20km+away and apart from Loch Leven (20km away) the nearest landlocked unclaimed tile is about 35km away.  Still got ~150 tiles within my local authority boundary to visit.

I've just seen an ad for a new triathlon that's happening in July this year. I'm very tempted to enter - partly because I quite fancy the challenge, but mainly because the swim and run segments would be very good ways to bag some otherwise inaccessible Veloviewer tiles, being on private land (the Brett site near Lydd).

Sad or what?  ;D

(Only the £75 entry fee is putting me off a bit, but I see there are some other events organised on the same site, including a 20 mile run, which also looks tempting.)

Went out for a walk today which netted a few awkward tiles  :thumbsup: Max cluster increased by 4.

I see it's been 6 months since my last post! No travel off island and the Shetland mainland tiles left here are all hard work now, but I've been chipped away a bit.
The weather has been calm and cold for more than 2 weeks now, which is not usual at all, but meant a coastal walk with my video making pal, and an excuse to include a link to his youtube again:no bikes in this one though  :-[

Maybe good if you're not getting out and about as far as you would want just now.

Similarly, I went out for a walk on Saturday and bagged a couple of awkward tiles. I wasn’t going to bother recording it but luckily realised before we were too far in that there was an opportunity, so fired up Strava on my phone. Yay!

Lots of canals in .NL may freeze enough this week that I'm pondering some of the water only tiles...

I stopped racing 10 years ago, that long ago that most of my times disappeared from the net ;)..

Some well known Dutch tilehunters are already working on icy tiles:

I have all of those tiles via a bike... I'm pretty sure Yorick has too...

First tile of year, and the Endrick is flooded over the last square i can add in the county.  When the country opens up it will be good, no more groundhog days plodding about local runs.
Totals 28741, 29 square and 1658 cluster
