Watch the Morris Dancer dance and leap 9 Trig points on the Sussex Downs... and don't double with laughter like I did...

Was it really only nine?

Basically, this is fine - but surely "Nine Sussex Triangulation Points" should be danced with theodolites, not handkerchiefs?

Slightly Python-esque. Kept expecting John Cleese to interrupt "...and now for something completely different..."

Thank you for that link - I needed a bit of a laugh.

Did you notice how well the clips were edited so that the rhythm followed through from site to site?

And I'm glad we didn't put Dad's ashes on Hollingbury.

That dance would be a straight line motion in the US - the USGS markers are brass discs that are cemented into place on the ground.

But did he dance all the distance in between?

Have passed this on to a Geocacher, am sure he'll be interested. Very surreal....
