This is a personal blog mainly to do with hillwalking things but with other stuff as well.....maybe the odd rant..
Just remember that some parts are off limits sometimes due to the need to blow things up and shout a lot (including swearing) saying get up that hill you little '**$% and engage the enemy. Apart from that it is a fantastic place to walk. I reckon your goal should include Ten Tors and a pint, or two at Postbridge.
Before the 15th of Sept I presume, or the military are going to have a say in your wanderings for sure.http://www.dartmoor-ranges.co.uk/firing_notice_1.htmlIt is an old site now but always found this handy inspiration:http://www.richkni.co.uk/dartmoor/And this one is the mother of all Dartmoor sites:http://www.legendarydartmoor.co.uk/
Plenty of ideas on my last few trips hopefully(Archive: April 09; July 08; June 08)If you take it steadily a 2 night w/camp crossing S to Ivybridge Railway is one option, or just turn around somewhere near Red Clay Pit and head back to Okie a different way.The Grey Wethers stone circles is a definite must. Try to avoid anywhere near Princetown - most of the walks/wildcamping around there will be too busy and no funDrop me an e-mail if I can help, and we can have a chat on the phone to answer any questions.
Thanks lads - this is so useful, in fact, that I've had to postpone my trip till November because of the blowing things up and shouting... I had planned to start on 15 September (doh!) I can;t go before cos I've got other stuff I've promised to do, and the next opportunity will be from 9 November.So, November it is.This gives me plenty of time to see if any more good suggetsions come in. I have taken accoun t of the info so far and John, I'll likely take up your offer of a chat in due course, when I've got a bit more of a plan.So far so good.... (aart from the explosions in Sept)
Oooer - Just realised (cos I iz fick about this stuff) that I've now got a week diaried in September and nowhere to go!I'll have to go somewhere - wouldn't want to set a precedent...thinks......
