Hello All - Long time no box

Hi Everyone, I am getting restless now - it has been nearly a year since my last boxing trip :cry: mainly due to a combintion of time and bad weather! I just wanted to say hi again and that I fully intend to get my butt back on the moor soon! I noticed that Stephanies Dragon and curried boxes are go...

Reg, not found any dog leads but did find a red and black dog ball - a really solid one. Now gracing a spot in my flat. Thanks for the advice on here - Yesterday I forgot the bite cream (for insects BTW not snakes) Tim got eaten! oops Also in addition to beer money don't forget the ice cream money :D

Dopey Question - Badges

Hi all,

I can't remember what badges are available, we have 100 and 200 (blue one and white one)

Is the yellow one for 300 or 500? if it is 300 we only have 24 left to get (which will happen on Saturday even if I am boxing by torchlight!!!!!!)

If it is 500 than maybe not . . . . . :D

I would like to put my 2p in. Good luck to Geocachers - I have given it a bash here in B/stoke, there is a very cleverly hidden one in a well known supermarket carpark! HOWEVER I did find a very badly hidden cache on the path up to the moor from the fox and hounds, It was so plain that any non boxin...

We have a GPS which to be honest takes most of the fun out of diving under rocks (Which is my personal if slow favorite way of boxing) I tend to use the GPS for Charity walks just because there is a time limit to how long they are available. Tim is getting very good with compass after a brief lesson...

The Pastie plodders was our 1st stamp - Brat tor area If I can remember rightly.

My very 1st letterbox was just back from the gate at the back of the fox and hounds 20 odd years ago - I lost it! It was a picture of a post box. This was well before Tim was born.

I have the book, loaded some on the gps and check them off as we go, but our most popular technique is to dive under any and every rock, that way we find wom boxes, unregistered and catalogue boxes without getting angry they are not there.

I would recommend Belstone - There is a charity walk and if done on a sunday there are cream teas in the village hall in the afternoon

Some people are just so rude! So far I can happily say we have met only friendly boxers - who have shared the odd clue, hint or info as to a missing box, so maybe I should count myself lucky. I hope that you meet many more friendly people in the future as without new and younger generations how woul...

I am a bit on the fence for ths one, We use a shop bought for 'our' stamp but we feel it is relevant to the sport. I have also seen some nice shop bought that relate to either the name of the box or Dartmoor in general and we are new so were not sure what stamp we want to have made in our name. I do...

We like to just hunt out boxes then check the catalouge to see if it is registered. Belstone alone gave us 30 boxes last weekend. I have a GPS but I am a gadget nut, I try not to use it. Tim (13yrs old) and I rove around and when a box is found we call out 'whoop whoop' for the other to come over an...

SO HAPPY

We did it! We got to our 1st hundred ! ! ! ! It looked a bit shaky - we lost our stamp, and found it again and also ran out tors near the car so we had to dash off to a new place at 5pm, but after 2 days of hunting we went from 42 to 100!!!!! (It did mean not leaving the moor until 8pm LOL) We also ...
