The West Devon One Tor Expedition

The 2024 Ten Tors Challenge took place this weekend. According to the BBC:

Thousands of people will gather on Dartmoor this weekend for the 62nd Ten Tors challenge.

The trek will be attempted by 2,400 teenagers, navigating routes of 35, 45 or 55-miles (56, 72 or 88km) across Dartmoor.

Challengers will set off on Saturday, guiding themselves unaccompanied to 10 check points throughout the weekend.

The Jubilee Challenge will also take place for about 400 young people with special, physical or educational needs.

Since the weather was warm and sunny on Saturday afternoon, we decided to undertake a more modest expedition of our own. Lisa, our trusty Nissan LEAF, conveyed us to the car park at Meldon Reservoir where our trek began:

We wandered around the east side of the reservoir. and eventually reached a babbling brook:

Descending along the ridge we had a fine view of Yes Tor and High Willhays, including an 846 Naval Air Squadron Merlin flying low between the two tors:

I've been programming computers since the late 60s. In those days they didn't have computers in schools, so we had to build our own. What can I program next? Will I have to build it first?
