Well, some of us went for a proper walk - but as Big Darren has just bought me my second pint of Dartmoor, I won't name names...
I had the great pleasure of walking today with Gayle & Mick (just back from their Land's End to John O' Groats) and Martin (Summit & Valley blog - see 'Great Places to Visit'). I say 'pleasure' in the loosest sort of way, as G&M are stupendously fit (ah, I remember) and Martin is ten years younger and built like a racehorse.
Anyway, they were gentle with me (ish) and we had a fine walk taking in Yes Tor, High Willhays, Okement Hill, Great Kneeset, Amicombe Hill and then a nice daunder down to Nodden Gate, where we arrived surprisingly at the same time as those doing wussy routes. It has to be said that others (litehiker & John Hee) did do slightly longer routes and arrived as we were finishing our first suppers.
The walk itself did have a few heavy showers, but generally was fantabulous - with huge dramatic skies, views to die for, lush long grasses with no bottom and - wonderfully boggy bits with layered dark tors on the edge of the skies.
Presently I am sitting in a wonderful pub only a stone's throw from our wild-camp. It's a wonderful pub because they sell beer and have chairs!
Martin has just bought me my third pint, so I had better stop typing this now before it slides further downhill.
