Hi Vardini, Some interesting things there – and pleased you enjoyed my puzzle cache 😉
The health aspect is a great one – I started walking more a few years ago after a combination of giving up smoking and changing to a desk job meant I put on weight, and shortly after starting walking again I discovered caching. It’s made me much fitter, although sadly hasn’t done much about the weight. But I quietly rationalise this by saying to myself – “You weigh 18 stone and can walk over 15 miles, you’re a super athlete!”
Dartmoor’s not /always/ cold and harsh. Some days it’s the best place in the world to be. Warm, soft, welcoming – and in the right place – without dozens of people, screaming children, radios or even a sense of time. Hard to find that elsewhere.
