I'm planning a 5-6 days hike on Dartmoor in August. I will be coming from France and my Eurostar gets in London Sunday Aug 5th mid afternoon so I cannot be in Exeter/Newton Abbot on time to get a bus to the Moor.
I might end up taking a cab to around Postbridge. The nice alternative would be to find some local that can give me a ride. I opened a swap thread here: http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=92411. So if you are around and willing to drop me from Exeter to some place suitable for tarp on the moor, you could get yourself some nice stuff I can bring a bottle of French wine too!
I will work on an itinerary this week-end and ask your opinions. Trying to minimize time spent on farm lands or roads. On the way back I will probably take a bus from Princeton back to Exeter/Newton Abbot.
