Selling merch with unverified routes on?
The big 'route maps' they're sending to people who back the crowdfunder are a lovely idea (here: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/slow-ways-maps) but realistically they're going to be covered in un-usable routes which will end up being replaced. Are we sure it's a good idea to push the project quite so hard while it's still in beta? How many of the routes depicted have been walked even once by a human being?
Thanks very much for the comment and feedback geeoharee!
I agree with Lynn Jackson on this, but in addition, the scale of the maps are designed for planning but not navigating. They will be used alongside the routes on the website. So, people will be able to plan routes using the maps and colour in Slow Ways they've walked, even if the precise wiggly routes used are different.
As the project progresses we plan to create more maps and more detailed maps too.
Thanks again and please do get copies!
Slow Ways will always be changing, adding new routes or removing old ones. OS Maps are the same; new versions of Explorer and Land Ranger maps are regularly printed.
This map will be versioned in a similar way, I’m sure.0
I also agree with Lyn, though I understand the concern. As time goes on we could proudly mark the new updates on merch' to track both up to date information and the vintage of time spent on slowways.0
Thanks for posting Edensyard
Loving the idea of 'vintage Slow Ways'. It'll be great to track how things are evolving over time.
