Dartmoor: Sheeps Tor and going solo
Skip forward two years, and still I was waiting to pop that solo wild camping cherry! Although I spent five out of six days of the Overland Track alone, I was staying in shelters and so don't count them as wild camping.
I had no real idea where I was going to camp when I jumped in the car on Saturday afternoon, for the short drive to the moor from Halwill Junction. My mind must have changed at least half a dozen times on the road and as I neared each possible parking location, I sped on, until eventually I found myself in Princetown; by now my mind was set on a return to Sheeps Tor.
