On August 8, 2008, we spent much of the day driving through Dartmoor—or, as Joshua called it, “Deeply Disappointing Dartmoor”.

Dartmoor is the sparsely-populated giant moorland that covers much of Devon. It is a warren of narrow roads, hills, streams, bogs, farms and villages.

For some reason, Dartmoor is a popular vacation destination with the British.

I can say, with some confidence, that we are unlikely to return.


  1. Gotta say, tho, that road looks good for cycling (even though I suspect it's rather humid there)! :o)

  2. Hey, Smorg.

    I'm going to have to catch up with your blog before the week is out. I have been busy of late, and neglectful. I do not even know what you have been up to recently.

    The Dartmoor road was very narrow, and without shoulders. Bikers would have held up traffic, if not actually been plowed under by irritated drivers!
