At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

You sound like you are really getting a feel for Dartmoor now. The navigation is challenging but that makes it even more worth lovely.

Blonde One and I have some history with that tree and boundary stone, we know it well.

Did you spot the wooden posts on Hameldown? Can you guess why they are there?

Blonde Two - it's all good stuff. I'm a convert. I did see the poles. They are either for marking the path in winter snow or for hanging funny hats on.

We have been there in the winter snow a few times (very cold) but you are wrong - think German planes and landing sites :-)

Blonde Two - sounds like a good clue, but I'm still not sure even though I was born in 1939. I look forward to your explanation - perhaps it would make a good Dartmoor post for you?
