  • Ordinance Survey maps go really far afield

    OS are now issuing maps of Mars so if you are planning some unusual hikes or orienteering you should be OK. No pubs marked on them though - could be a drawback!

    Lack of GPS and a magnetic field might make things a little harder. Have they issued tables for stars so you can use celestial navigation...

      In a very British consideration, I deplore the general lack of public toilets.

      There are no rest areas either, or picnic tables.

      Deplorable.
