The Big Move!

Well it's finally happening, our house move down to stormy Devon move finally takes place tomorrow, everything is in place the trucks arrive at 9am in the morning, although due to the weather I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't have hired a Chinnook helicopter to fly us in so as to avoid all the floods. And to think we were at one stage thinking of moving down to the Somerset Levels, mind you the way things are going I think Devon could soon be as bad. Thank God we've decided to go onto Dartmoor, at least we'll have a bit of height there, though I am wondering if the small sream that flows through the back garden might prove to be problematic in the future and has turned into a raging rapid, even if we have been assured its never ever been a cause for concern in the past.
Everything has been ordered so that our broadband connection should be in place when we get there so hopefully we won't have any issues there.....He says with a wry smile!
The cameras have been buried in amongst all the boxes for weeks now, but I'm hoping to get them out just as soon as possible as my trigger finger is itching like mad now. I'll have rescue them by the 21st as I'm supposed to be in Kentallen, Scotland to go on that landscape workshop with Colin Prior I luckily won on EPZ last year, lets face it if anyone needs go on a landscape workshop it's me Blush
So wish us both luck, because if the weather forecasts are to be believed it could turn out to be an interesting day. If you don't hear from me for a few days now you'll know why, it's because we never made it and are up to our armpits in flood water and are gently floating out to sea down the River Tamar Tongue
Hopefully if all goes well normal service will be resumed in a week or two and I'll actually start commenting and posting to the galleries and forums as much as I usually do. Feel sorry for the poor folk of Devon, they ain't gonna know what's them by the end of the month Wink

Dartmoor is wonderful at its best but winters can be harsh.

She-who-must-be-obeyed lived on the moor before we got together and learned to be self sufficient. Power cuts were common so a petrol generator is a must. The heating system and cooking facilities must operate without electricity.

A 4x4 vehicle allows movement in any weather. Or buy an old tractor!

Good luck.

I'm so envious. it's a wonderful part of the country and it'll be fab. Once you've found the tea pot and the cameras you'll be laughing. Smile
