Re: Welcome to the "new site"

Wow, what a wonderful transformation.
I don't visit this site as often as I would like to but this refresh might change that. Great job :)

Whilst I agree that £2.50 is a very reasonable price to take part in a charity walk, I think consideration has to be taken into how many walks are on offer. I have missed the last couple of Meets but there were plenty of walks to choose from last time I went. I don't think that everybody could affo...

I posted this almost six years ago. In that time I have only averaged 100 boxes a year.
That will change this year, and I am armed with my new catalogue. Just need to purchase some charity walks now.

That was a fun read. Isn't it odd that such a hobby (which sounds weird when first heard of) is so addictive?

Hi Scott, One For Roger No.23 - Egyptian Vulture is box No.43,744 As far as I am aware it is not a moving box. I found it on the SW slopes of Hare Tor a few years back, about a mile away from Doe Tor. It was a straightforward clue if I remember correctly. Can't help with the others I'm afraid. Rob

I also thought the Oke Tor might be a Mystery Tor stamp. It seems odd that I have the visitors books for the Oke Tor box.
I loved those old Mystery Tor boxes, does anybody remember who sited them?

The boxes I have were owned originally by RP Milton, a well known boxer (and friend of Godfrey) who established many of the first letterboxes. I have the stamps and the visitors books. Most of these boxes were originally put out in 1978. Belstone Tor - North Dartmoor Est 1978 Watern Oke - Enclosure...

Help needed: Old boxes

Hi all, Since you are a knowledgeable bunch, I require some help ... I would like to know, if possible, the original clues and GRs for the following boxes. I have had them in my possesion for a few years now and would really like to resite them on the moors. This is something I have been meaning to...
