SplashMaps is giving Maps a Dirty name with its mud-proof maps. First our Media Release, “Military Covert Map Copies On Trial “20151003-SplashMaps-Survival-Fest-2015-FINAL reveals how we stole the idea from the military. Which led to a lot of questions at the Bear Grylls Survival Race.
Not flustered at all, our intrepid MD took on more than he could chew with the burly instructors as he defended SplashMaps’ personalised, destination and international maps.
Proving that heroes are made not born, John took on the survival race – his first ever competitive run since school! He was proud to beat the man in the mankini (Eds note: having followed closely behind him on most obstacles ;-)).
Our photographer, Matt, became obsessed with the filthy way these mud-loving adventure racers describe themselves.
But it was Mike’s wayward selling style (was he selling the maps or himself?)…
… that meant it was him who took it in the stomach in the end.
So our maps were literally dragged through the mud for 20km on an assault course designed by the Commandos for Bear Grylls.
We now declare our maps totally, officially, Bear Proof! Is that giving maps a dirty name?
