DARTMOOR PERAMBULATION (part two)

WILDCAMP AT HUNTINGDON WARREN
As I am still away busy cycling from Edinburgh to Portsmouth with JD and Dave (the broom wagon) Vaughan I thought that I would post some more photographs from my recent Dartmoor Perambulation. 


As with so many of these types of trips, it is only now....looking back on the trip in it's entirety, that I realize how much I actually enjoyed it. 
At the time I did find some of it hard, but then again that was only to be expected after such a long lay-off from backpacking. 
The real joy of it all was the close camaraderie that is only to be found when a group of friends are doing something together that they all enjoy............

So many Tor, so little time! Great photos, and the perambulation looks quite enjoyable.

That's what I call roughing it.

The perambulation is a really great route even though some of the going is a bit tough.

A friend of mine always say's "Any fool can be uncomfortable". That's the art of backpacking..to travel over rough country totally self supported and yet still be as comfortable as it's possible to be.
Believe me, we didn't rough it!!
