Listing missing boxes on here would probably be really useful - as long as people were absolutely certain the boxes were missing. Without a GPS and a good grid reference - there is always room for human error - even with GPS you couldn't always be totally certain. I spent ages looking for two boxes in two different locations once - didn't find the boxes on the first trip - but they were clearly there - coz I found them on the second trip - hidden extremely well under the rocks I had previously been poking under! :lol:
BTW Monkeys - take a look in the 'spares' Dizzy sent you with your stamps - I think that might be where my 'missing' shop stamps might be!! :wink:

the range poles are up there! about 6-7 foot high and red and white have a look on the 1-25k map it shows where the edge of the fireing range is this will give you some idea as to how far from roos tor the range poles are!
i will try to find a pic
