Personal details:Whether on an offshore island or on mainland Britain I just love to spend a day out and about trig hunting. *Status* Oct. 2011: No more island visits planned until next year, will try to visit some of the harder to get to Welsh pillars in the meantime. Feb. 2012: Just spent a week and a half in Cornwall and Devon walking from Lands End to Tiverton, visiting a selection of trigs along the way. Mar. 2012: Got to log trigs on Coll, Tiree, Kerrera, Colonsay, Luing and Mull. A good month :). May. 2013: Compiled a list of trigs on islands in Great Britain and Ireland. Click the link in my homepage above or find the detailed spreadsheet on the Yahoo group Trigonomy. Oct. 2016: So I've now been a T:UK member for 5 years. Where does all the time go? I'm still plugging away at it even though the opportunities to visit new pillars become more infrequent with less unvisited near to home. Trying a quality over quantity mindset at the moment. I've also created a Youtube channel to document my walks with plenty of hill and trig related content. Have a look if you want https://www.youtube.com/user/alexc1661 .
