    Default To trig or not to trig - that is the question!

    Just wandered how many of you sane tupperware spotters also enjoyed the madness that is the pursuit of remote concrete triangulation pillars

    Looking pretty unanimous so far!

    I've only logged 2 Trigs, 'cos they happened to be right next to caches, I don't think I'd go very far out of my way for one.

    I used to log them on another TP site years ago, but only if caching took me near them. When that site faded away I lost interest in logging them.

    There really needs an option between

    Will go off my caching route to log trigpoints.
    I live to “Trig”

    As I'm happy to go quite a long way off my caching route to bag a trig.
    I even bag trigs when not caching, but wouldn't say "I live to Trig"

    Remote?
    Trig 1


    Trig 2

    Yes, it was JeremyP's site. I'm afraid I was rather put off by the way it seemed to be edged out of things. All water under the bridge now, as far as I'm concerned, but I no longer log TPs, though I do visit them if I'm nearby.

    I've never heard it mentioned by anyone else before - I just remembered spotting the link somewhere.

    My very first find was at a trig point,near Leek Wooton and I recently visited an earthcache where another trig point stood, Dyserth Mountain, the land of leeks. Shame about the graffiti though.
