Dartmoor Walking Tour Diary - Day 4

We were moving to a different campsite today but doing a walk from Postbridge which was en-route - just to see what that was like.

To make sure we could get into the car park at Postbridge, we decided to leave early and have breakfast once we had parked up for the day. Packing away the bed took a few minutes and we were soon on the road.

At Postbridge, we parked in the large visitors centre car park (we were first to arrive - even before the staff) and had breakfast and made up our packed lunches. (We were also slightly relieved to discover that the kitchen sink now does appear to be draining).

Driving to your walk start location and then having breakfast before heading up the nearest hill certainly did make for a relaxing start to the day's walking.

After finishing the walk, we had a quick cup of tea and a piece of cake (naughty but nice) and then headed off to the nearest supermarket to replenish our food stocks. Parking in the large supermarket car park was easy - though we did take up a couple of bays.

The campsite we'd chosen for the next few days was very pleasant with very good facilities - including electrical hook-ups. This meant that we could switch the appliances to run off an external 250v power supply. This was also the first real use of the Aqua-roll. This is basically a large 40 litre water container with a handle. It's designed so you can roll it along the ground when it is full (and very heavy) as a means of moving water from a site supply to your vehicle. You then set it up outside the motorhome and connect it via a small pump to top-up your vehicle's onboard water storage. It works very well indeed.

Growing in confidence, we had a slightly more ambitious dinner - pork chops, boiled potatoes and salad.

The outside temperature dropped quite a lot once the sun had gone down, so we took the opportunity to try out the gas wall heater. This was really really effective and was only required for a short while to take the chill off the 'room'.

We were really quite 'warming' to the notion of Motorhome living now . . .
