In three weeks time I’ll be off to Dartmoor again. This time I shall be accompanied by veteran TGO Challenger, Andy Walker. Train tickets have been booked. One attraction of going in August is that there’s no firing on the ranges, so we can go where we like. I’ve lined up a couple of new camping spots. I’m hoping that the heat wave might have abated by then. There have been reports of swarms of midges and horse flies, which I’m hoping are exaggerated.
Given the heat, I’ll probably be using trail shoes for the first time in a while. At the moment I’m not sure which ones. I’m going to dig out my Exos 58 rucksack, as I figure that the ventilated back should be more comfortable in hot conditions. I have also joined the Trailstar club and will give it a first outing. I’m hoping that Sean will be able to make a nest for me before I go.
