    Hello all,

    I guess it's that time again. I will be moving (all being well) at the end of Sept into early Oct and thought I'd try and setup a meet on Dartmoor for one last time.

    Proposed dates would be the 5th and 6th of October or the 12th and 13th.

    The route is to be confirmed but I am sure there will be a pub in there somewhere.

    Any and all welcome.

    Site should be closed so I should be able to make this one for a change.

    Certainly can't do the first weekend and the 2nd one looks unlikely too.

    Darn it!

    Have fun.

    That's a shame mate, when I'm north of the wall will have to catch up at then

    If there are any parts of the moor that people would like to see, drop them in a reply and I'll try and get as many in the route as possible

    Can’t now do first two weekends in October. Clear after that though. Although I’m only busy on the Saturday mornings so could potentially meet you in the afternoon and continue from there

    I've no idea what I'll be doing in October... But what exactly is the idea here, just in case? And where? What are public transport options to... wherever? I'm guessing train to Newton Abbot then bus to... Princetown or somewhere?

    We fairly regularly have a get-together, more of a social walk, chat gear and generally catch up.

    Nothing is set in stone yet, I need to know if there is anywhere specific people would like to visit/camp before I can plan a basic route.

    An excellent idea @Dave V unfortunately, I'm away the first weekend. The second is touch and go but could well be an option. If it falls through I will certainly catch you before you head off though.

    I'll see if I can make this meet. Will be nice to put a few faces to names.

    Due to family commitments, I can only do the 12th and 13th now. I'm sure if there are enough people a get together on the 5th and 6th would be a good laugh too.
