I thought all walk organisers HAD to put the dated the walk is being officially taken in on their clue sheets - or is it just me that's been taken in? :wink:

If in doubt - so long as there is a phone number or e-mail address then you could always contact them to find out. Sometimes it pays to do the same if a walk nas been out for a few months because then you are aware of any problems with it as well.

All the walks i've bought over recent months have had the start and finish dates on them, so haven't had any problems.

A couple of the walks I bought in the winter, because I bought them so late, also advised of any problems and provided copies of stamps that were missing.

next target 2000 - hopefully some time in 2010 (ha, ha, make that 2013)

Setting out a walk is a torrid affair these days - while a couple of years ago people used to put out a walk taking their bearings and then publishing the clues all for a quid!

Now... you have to ask the DPA if you can - in what area - get permission - get a list of potential sites - get permission - site the boxes and get someone to check the site - then you can publish your clues - so it aint easy as it was anymore.
Though you can possibly get away with a one day walk as long as the boxes are removed on that day!
Seems legislation has taken a lot of the fun out of it!
Then the price has escalated - which to me puts me off - shame really!
I am happy to donate the price to a charity than bother to go out and look for them - and quite often some of the quality of the stamps is pretty poor whereas others are excellent!

They are a worryingly common breed. Probably related to Gremlins - I think they multiply when you put water on them... :twisted:
