Well due to the clear weather and an unused half days holiday to take, I took the long way home from work to tick off some northerly squares in South Derbyshire. 10 squares increased my cluster by about 30 to 3094.

It was a lovely ride undermined by the greasy roads full of thin mud. The worst kind as it both slows you down and can be slippy especially if you don't know the descent. Some beautiful views though and a lot of climbing.

Just getting started on this. I went out to get my last few tiles on the Isle of Grain. Unfortunately, the NE tip is an Army Range, so will require a clandestine walk along the shore to get. The two on the South side will require a canoe!

Popped out for a quick lunch time ride to get an elusive tile on the Isle of Grain.
I had to climb down a bank then walk alongside an old wreck to just get into the tile.
I had a printed satellite map with me and knew exactly where I needed to get to. However when got home and uploaded my ride to Strava it hadn't properly registered how far I had got to. I hope it is within the spirit of tile-bagging to edit the gpx file to add the extra few feet it had missed! :smile:

Since getting started a couple of weeks ago, I have increased my max square to 17x17, having started at 9x9. This is just by filling in a few gaps. From here on in it will get a lot harder.

@Trickedem sometimes veloviwer does not give you a tile that's you've just touched unless you open the ride on your activities page . Be careful as this can also work the other way and remove a tile you've not quite been in
As for editting the gpx it's not a competition so to me you've made a proper effort to what looks a very difficult tile so I would take it anyway

You won't let it go will you? I did warn you that it could happen :whistle:

No new cluster tiles today, but laying some groundwork with a ride to Salisbury.

The secret ingredient to bring it all together is a ride along Old Shaston Drove and Ox Drove

I always like doing a square ride to lay the groundwork for a future expansion to the cluster. I was thinking of ticking a few squares off on Wednesday but the weather isn't looking the best in the afternoon.

More groundwork done, the gap was an annoying one with no public access from the west. There's a road into that tile from the east...

Looking ahead:

And the scraggly edges of Dorset, with some new tiles in the New Forest, because why not:
