    Default YoSM

    Following a request from another cacher, I've added a POI file for the 'Ye Old Survey Monuments' Ordnance Survey based virtual geocache GC45CC by 'outforthehunt'. Up to & including YSM345. For more info see http://www.yosm.co.uk/

    The YoSM website is now back up, and the YoSM POI file has been updated to include up top no.366.

    This cache confuses me. Can I log finds on all the OSMs shown, or only on the one it's currently showing on the cache page? And how about other OSMs that aren't listed?

    You can log as many as you find - even the older ones. Just follow the find instructions for each one.
    As far as I know its the only cache in the UK you can log more than once (morally )
    I've logged it 6 times myself.
    Happy Caching

    www.yosm.org.uk/


    Scroll down the page. It lists those that have found YOSM more than 47 times. Some over 100 times...

    With 366 listed, and all loggable, and YOSM changing regularly, if it's not listed it soon will be!

    So I can log any of the 366 already shown if I find them, thanks.

    What about ones that aren't in the 366 yet?

    He's still putting new ones on quite often, so it's just a case of waiting for them.

    If it's listed, and you've found it or it's close and findable -and can supply the required information-log it/them!

    And yes also TrigpointingUK for those not on the YOSM list.

    Also UK and Ireland Trigpoints over on Waymarking. If you find a trig/mark and it's not listed -list it!

    and, incidentally, if you're planning a large geocaching event and you'd like to have YOSM located at a nearby trig point while the event is happening, then just contact the owner well in advance and place your request. He's very accommodating!

    That's true - I'd been saving nearby Robert Law as my 500th trig a couple of years ago, and when I asked him to add it to the YoSM list he was very obliging, making it also my 100th cache. :cheers:
