    As an ex mil guy, I loves me maps I do!

    Anyway, popped into Waterstones to pick up a couple of 1:50,000 OS maps for a forthcoming trips to the lakes. Whilst there I noticed OS Tour Maps....Brilliant, not seen them before.

    They cover entire regional areas on one map, so one map covers the Lakes, or the Peak District, or Devon & Somerset etc. They are ideal for a life on the move and give you a 3D view of high ground and the watercourses. Plus it includes all info about interesting locations you might like to visit. You wouldn't want to go on the hills with them, but ideal for pre-planning and if you don't intent to stray far from your van.

    Best of all...Waterstones have a 3 for 2 offer at the moment on all their Ordnance Survey range of maps. So today I walked of with 1 x 1:50,00 and 2 x Tour maps for just over 12 quid.

    I'm also a paper map lover.. generally buy an OS map when staying in one place for any length of time.. invaluable.. I make notes on them, places visited, sites etc etc .. I even have some may dad used in the 50s and 60s.. they make interesting reading after all these years .. family history on a map .

    I also use them with the Sea Scouts for route marking and walking..

    For those who have an Android phone you can get the UK OS Atlas free on an app from the Play Store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mooksoft.osatlaslite&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5tb29rc29mdC5vc2F0bGFzbGl0ZSJd

    won't replace paper mapping for serious walking, but a good app all the same..
