I've also been thinking about doing an Isle of Man mapping party
around the last week of august, actually more likely 1st and 2nd
I'm expecting it'll be mostly local people, part of the reason being
that I don't think there is actually that much more to map outside of
the towns of the island.
Is anyone interested? The weather is usually ever so slightly better
than Manchester's rainyness :)
