Congratulations Hoggs, I've just had a quick look at the map and it looks great.
I particularly like the way you've kept the basic idea but added a couple of new twists.
Look like it's off out tomorrow to find the pubs for me.

Northeast England, now have we upset you up here?

Now I understand that it's only about 900Sq miles and you can take a few hundred off for the North Sea but just wondering if it was me :D

@Bender you'll get docked points for posting in the wrong thread if you're not careful :lol: I've moved it here...

And there are lots of pubs and dealerships near you so :raspberry:

I think it's so you don't have an unfair advantage, you could happily visit any other area but those living elsewhere don't want to visit the north east.
