After watching the videos from local YouTubers for so long, chatting away to them on social media, I suppose it was inevitable that a meet would be planned.
On this wet and windy weekend we had a great laugh. A really enjoyable walk on Dartmoor with an overnight, meeting up with three cracking guys. Please check out their channels and give them a subscribe.
We set off from Brat Tor car park in the mist and rain and made our way to the Okememt Valley, camping just below High Willhays and Lints Tors.
I took my Osprey Talon 33 again and was very impressed, apart from a small drop at the bottom of the bag where I’d rested in on the wet ground, no water for inside after a very wet day. The same can be said for my Montane Minimus Stretch jacket, it performed very very well. Kept the wind and rain off me and managed my body sweat very well.
This was also the first outing for my Chinese ASTA pyramid shelter and my new MYOG bivvy sack. Very happy with both. The MID is smaller than I’d ideally like but good enough and the bivvy sack worked extremely well keeping me condensation free and warm.
