[Talk-GB] mapping props

I don't know about anyone else, but sometimes I get some pretty odd looks
while out mapping - especially in residential areas where there are a lot
of elderly people.
They watch me cycling up to the end of their quiet cul-de-sac's and then
turning round and going down the next one, taking photos of street signs as
I go. I think they suspect me of being up to no good. I would hate to
think I'm causing them to worry.
Does anyone on this list carry some indication of whet they are really
doing? I was thinking of getting a high-visibility vest and printing "OSM
Survey" on it (with the URL of the main site underneath). No doubt this
would be thought to be a marketing survey or something, but it might help
to quash the suspicion I seen to arouse.
Maybe this doesn't happen to anyone else, and it's just that I look dodgy,
or that York is particularly rich in paranoid residents...?
