Re: trip to ducks pool

It is a lovely walk out there, feels very remote at times.

Re: NEW MEMBERS

Better anti-spam measures make this no longer needed, so I'm de-pinning this thread.

Re: Forum problems

Thanks for the idea, Colin - I suspect you're right. I've changed the header back to letterboxing.org - hopefully that resolves the issue. In case anyone's wondering why it's different... The site is hosted at Hennock on Dartmoor - on the end of a rural adsl line. I have a secondary connection which...

Re: Forum problems

Hi Mark, Afraid I can't replicate that - if I click on the 'latest topics' bit on the home page, 'read more' - if I was logged into the forum before, it keeps me logged in. Only thing I can think of is that your browser isn't keeping cookies for the site - so the site doesn't recognise you when you ...

Re: Going on a walk

Hi I went out there a couple of years ago. Parked by the scout hut, then to Ditsworthy Warren, NE to Higher Hartor, then due East to Ducks Pool. Came back and crossed the river a little further north, then followed the track down through Eylesborough. Nice walk, took just short of five hours and cov...

Faster site

I have significantly upgraded the speed of the connection to my server recently. Unfortunately, I still do not have control of the DNS for dartmoorletterboxing so am unable to point the domain to the new IP. I have attempted 2 or 3 times to talk to Tom over the past year or so but have not had any r...

Un-named box removed from Rippon Tor

Found an unmarked box without stamp, looks like a kids' box, in a sorry state - thoroughly soaked. Dates in the watery log from 2010. Located about 50m west of Rippon Tor Trig. Removed it from the moor today as it had become rubbish. Pic attached. IMG_20161020_094046966_HDR.jpg (Not passing forward ...

Moor than Meets the Eye

This is very Dartmoor related, and does affect letterboxing indirectly too, via improvements. Somehow I've found myself on the "Community Stakeholder's Board" of the Moor than Meets the Eye project. I wondered if anyone has heard of it, as it seems to be flying under the radar a bit, despite lots of...

Re: ABBREVIATIONS A GUIDE

This info is too good to be buried deep in the forums (although the search brought it up right away!) - so I have created a page linked from Info above and put them there, alone with a few others.

Bad article in the Times.
