Hi DDD. Hexworthy, Forest Inn - there is some nice boxing on the doorstep there. Taxi might be cheaper from Newton Abbot if you're coming by Train, but probably not much in it. Also Two Bridges and Postbridge - both good spots for boxing with nice pubs. My friends recently stayed at the latter and o...

Karma!

Chinkwell Tor today. Very windy. Walked into the lee of the wind whilst looking for a box - any box - and saw something. Peered closer and saw it was just a bit of litter, a Fruit Shoot bottle.

Parked at the end of the accessible ring road by an OP that wasn't marked on the OS map two weeks ago (I wasn't sure where I was when I started off as thick fog!) - just west of East Okemont Farm. Quite an easy walk south and around to the last OP on the ring road, where you leave due south off the ...

Sorry to go back on a point from May, but the minimum distance for geocaches is not valid. There are at least three popular geocaching websites, and sharing details between them is actively discouraged, so no chance of enforcing a .1 mile ruling. (I dislike the commercialism of gc.com, and some new ...
