• Dartmoor Training

Earlier this week I went on a two-day map-reading and walk leadership training course on Dartmoor.  I learned all about aiming off, back-bearing, boxing, hand-railing and leap-frogging.  Compass training was fascinating and I wish I’d done it years ago.  We explored SE Dartmoor, including a couple of hours of night-time walking.  The landscape is stupendous, including ancient and not so ancient monuments to man’s ingenuity and transience.  We met no-one, apart from an army unit heading out on exercise.
