Figuring out How Many Locations to Place in a Journey
I found an interesting tip from Ben Pridmore on the Yahoo Memory Sports group about how many locations can be created a small area:
Regarding pi, I’ve created a lot of new journeys. Fifty of them, with 111 points on each, to be precise. They are expansions of my competition journeys, using a method that was suggested to me by someone at the German championship last year (and I can’t remember who! I’m thinking Johannes Mallow, but I might be wrong), of squeezing lots and lots of points into one small area, like a room of a house. The living room in my flat, which used to be just one point, now has about fifty different points dotted around it. It’s been a lot of fun creating all these journeys!
I think I should start cramming more points into my journeys. In a walk through a city I’ve only been placing about 50 to 75, or just 10 per room.
