Dartmoor Walking Tour Diary - Day 7
This was to be our last day on this particular trip. So before setting off, we had to empty all the waste tanks and check that everything was stowed correctly before setting off. It's amazing how quickly you can get into a routine with this.
Like most campsites that take Motorhomes and Caravans, there was a special waste disposal point equipped with a hose for cleaning everything once it had been emptied.
We were planning to walk from Belstone - a small village five or six miles away from the campsite - so drove round to the car park before having breakfast and making up our packed lunches.

After the usual post-walk cuppa (this is getting delightfully habit forming), we set off on the drive back home.
We decided to stop at the services just north of Bristol for dinner. But rather than going into the service area's cafeteria and paying outrageous prices for dubious quality, we cooked and ate our own dinner in the car park. At this particular services there was a special car park for caravans and motorhomes and at least half of the people there were doing exactly the same.
About and hour and a half later, fed, watered and all washed up we headed up the M5 and M6 to return home.
We decided to try driving at a steady 65mph on the way home to see what difference it made to the fuel consumption. All in all, we think we spent £15 less on fuel on the way home than on the (rushed) outward journey. Which is amazing!
