Just to say thank you to Sowerby Streaker to putting the walks online and to everyone who put them out and got the clues to us so promptly. We are just back home in Scotland after 6 days on the moor in some of the most glorious weather ever. We had the first 8 walks published and managed to complete them all. Just wish we could go back and do the others! Very Happy

I completed two of the walks and started on a third. I have four in total and will be requesting more. The earliest I could get back to Dartmoor is more than likely in July….sadly. I am hoping all the walks will have all their boxes intact by the time I am able to get back. I'm also hoping for some nice weather this summer! :)
