Herd about OSM from lug radio. Eventually paid attention to it and got addicted after adding part of my home town to the map. It gave me a reason to go out walking and helped me keep fit.
Would like to make SOTM one day but health keeps getting in the way ;(
Mostly photo-mapping during car journeys at present (can only walk limited distances).
Mapping Kirklees/Leeds/Wakefield area's mainly with occasional trip upto the Yorkshire Dales.
