On Saturday all 10 Tors team managers met at Okehampton camp for a day of briefing with the Army so that we are all prepared for the forthcoming 2015 10 Tors Challenge. A good day with lots of information and a chance to meet the new Army team. We also heard from a number of Dartmoor’s farmers who advised us on how to behave on Dartmoor so that we don’t interrupt their farming activities or disrupt their stock. Message from the day was ‘always shut gates – even if they are open’. Why? Much easier for a farmer to go and open a gate rather than retrieve stock that have gone through when they weren’t supposed to.
We’ll be out this weekend – can’t wait
