Tobias Mews becomes Ordnance Survey 2016 #GetOutside Champion

I love maps. I’m not entirely sure when my fascination with them began as it feels as if they’ve been integral part of my life since my memories began. But I just love studying contours, looking for routes, finding trails, and learning more about where I am. I also love getting outside and going on on an adventure.


Earlier this year, I decided to enter a competition to become an Ordnance Survey #GetOutside champion. It was a fairly simple process that revolved around making a pledge. My pledge was to complete a microadventure in each of Britain’s 15 National Parks. Which I’m delighted to say, I’ve just finished doing.


So when I learned that I’d been selected to become an OS #GetOutside Champion for 2016, I was totally stoked. This is my opportunity to merge two of my great loves – navigation and adventure. Indeed, I believe one can’t live without the other.


Over the next year, you’ll be hearing quite a bit from me, encouraging you to Get Outside more, especially on self-supported adventures – my latest project.
