Hmmm....lets change this, the winner is the car that is the dirtiest with mud up the side of it from wheel spinning in mud and xxx, afterall there could be plenty of stuff coming off the moors and we might just blend in better. :D :D :D :D

Four wheel mud sliding will have to be their category, but if you have a brown FF you have to work harder for it to show up :D :D

Hopefully the weather will be a little better than the

last few days on Dartmoor!

So many snow tourists the roads had to be closed !

I thought you must have had at least 2 foot of snow from the news reports not just a sprinkling! Sounds like the FF wins out both ways but was hoping to bring the Healey.

Spent the afternoon working out routes etc for the tour.

Perfect day with unbroken sunshine & cool air.

Met up with the local wildlife near Widecombe on the Moor.

As this trip has become so popular have you just got the one hotel or have you booked another?

Hi Colin & John ,

The hotel is indeed full (except 1 single).

There are other local hotels but one problem is I am limited to 50 people on

both days. I have already booked a Saturday lunchtime buffet at a Dartmoor hotel

with a limit of around 50 , and have the same problem with Sunday and allocated parking at

a local marina. With 21 rooms plus local owners who have asked to join us I’m full.

I will see what I can do...
