Route and kit 25.2.13 Dartmoor camp.

Watch "A Dartmoor Wild Camp 25.2.13. Inc. pitching the MLD SuperMid." on YouTube

Following an exchange with Pads on YouTube I've decided to keep the blog going, wasn't sure if worth it, but if my info can be of some assistance to even one person, then its worth it.

I left the car part by Scorhill (its a tiny car park so not advised in high summer!) and headed for the stone circle between Hound Tor and Little Hound Tor.  Then Steeperton Tor, Hangingstone Hill,White Horse and Quentin's Man. Then Statts House, Sittaford Tor to another stone circle.  Through Fenworthy Forest (which also allows parking I believe) walked by reservoir and up to Thornworthy Tor.  Head west ish for a gate, then Kestor Rock, over two stone bridges back to the car.
I haven't used SatMap to check distance but its about, very approx, 12 miles from memory.  Its an easy walk and allow about 6 hours. That's my leg speed, so you may want to add an hour.

Excuse my convoluted way of doing a kit list, it's my way ;-)
Hope it's of use.
