    Wondered if anyone would be up for another meet down this neck of the woods, walk, overnight, walk maybe with a pub somewhere along the way...

    Proposed dates so far would be 14/15 July or 21/22 July.

    My initial thoughts were Dartmoor again.... but happy to go elsewhere. Route assistance would be appreciated for locations other than Dartmoor.

    ATB, Dave

    Four of us is a good start. If Dartmoor, I have a few routes in my mind, open to suggestions for routes and locations though :)

    A challenge for route planners.

    A swimming spot late afternoon would be good. A chance to try out my tredlite cuben trunks. :)

    Might bring the hound too this time.

    I've just had permission so I'm in. ...... So long as you promise not to wear those Cuben trunks around camp!!

    In the interest of giving folks due warning, and their option of exercising agency through free choice.

    You should know that if it's properly warm around camp - or even on trail - then yr Mr Mole can't be relied upon to keep his pants on at all... :bag:

    And what nonsense is all this talk of 'passes out'...
    You guys in some kind of detention centre??

    My naughty days are long gone. Never knew two simple words "I do" could affect me so .... :)

    Aha - I see now - you have entered into that adult-erous 'Mutual responsibility, and fidelity, for life' legal arrangement known as 'The Marriage Contract'

    I can imagine how that might feel like a bit of a stretch ...

    Did no-one tell you what you were signing up for?

    I'd call a lawyer if that is the case.

    Long-gone naughty days? - Oh yes - me too :angelic:

    Not going to be able to make 21/22 sadly now I'm afraid. Have a visitor coming to stay and I can't be away for that. Hope you have a fabulous time.

    I am around for the 21/22, if it's still on. (nothing related to @SafetyThird previous post)

    Still on. I have a few ideas for Dartmoor but happy if people want to go somewhere else

    Happy to go with Dartmoor. Rain, wind and sleet have all featured on our recent meets so it would be nice to have the opportunity for to see a decent sunset / sunrise without being driven into our shelters. Whereabouts are you thinking @Dave Vaughan ?

    Hah hah I’ll place an order for decent weather now :)

    I was thinking of a North moor trek, starting in the Lydford area. Similar to last time, there are a few pubs locally for Friday arrivals with camping or easy access for a Friday camp and then set off on Saturday.

    I won't be 100% sure I can make it until nearer the time - but that sounds like a good location and date for me.
