Excellent! Well done, BB.
Given these are mostly roads and lanes, I agree – micros in hedges are going to be suboptimal. I might try one or two around Bovey, but following your example – interesting spots rather than flooding a road. Also as this is a bike route, my guess is most bikers won’t want to stop every 161 meters?
There’s quite a few people support this over on the facebook group too (Devon geocachers)
