    Dartmoor meet 22 September 2017

    I know this is a way off, but I know what people's diaries can be like. Also the meets have seemed have gone a bit quiet.

    Initial loose plans, meet at Plume of Feathers Princetown on the Friday night and then wild camp Saturday night- following a previous Dartmoor meet trying to avoid a Stag in a pink tutu and onesie 😄
    Ive a few people lined up already so feel free to join us.
    Normal process is add your name to the thread

    1)Chewie
    2)Robin E
    3) robin M
    4)Nick
    5)Dave

    So the loose plan is
    Head to Lydford and leave the cars at the Fox & Hounds Inn. It's about a mile to a reasonable pitch for the night at Nodden Gate, 532 864 area and those who want to can wander back to the pub.
    I've not been to the pub for a while but used to be pub grub, not gastro.
    In the morning head to Steeperton Tor, which offers various routes to get to, enabling all levels of fitness. 8 to 11 miles
    One option is through Black a Tor copse which is an interesting area.
    Sunday, back toward Tavy Cleave and to the car about 9 miles.
    All of this can be changed if needed

    4)Nick
    5)Pete & Taz possibly
    6) MK if recovered
    7) Mole possibly
    8) Toot may appear

    Sounds good, 2 nights out yes?
    My son unfortunately broke his hand and has needed a lot of favours, which means I get to have a child-minder for the weekend

    MK not recovered sufficiently. Can walk 14km, as I did on Saturday, but not walking with a heavy rucksack atm. Sorry, but at least I am on the mend :-)

    Pete not too keen as it might be a tricky getting there Friday night with the nights drawing in.

    Hi Chewie thanks for the PM, for some reason I'm not able to send private messages, I have tried three or so times and don't seem to be getting anywhere?
    Further to this I am also unable to post new threads, is there something wrong with the site?

    Ah Taz, someone's child takes priority over a weekend with me
    looks like numbers have dropped, done out Friday night, then others out Saturday night.
    Anyhow, Im sticking to the original plan of camping the first night at Nodden Gate 533864 (ish)

    I'm out. Buggered. Fell through a roof couple weeks back, Doc said last Thursday it'll be 3-4 months before bruised bones at hip joint aren't sore. Sub-something haematoma. Pain in the ass. Literally. But only if I sit down, lie down, or try to walk very far! Was looking forwards to putting faces to a few famous names too...

    That's annoying for you. Though I can now use your experience to my benefit. I can tell Mrs C it isn't safe for me to do stuff like that
