Exminster - Stix Family - 4th Jan 2015

The best hash of the year so far, laid by the Bollards, Speedy, Rock and me.  It was Hole-in-1's birthday too - she arrived a little late after her party the night before.  Starting from Deepway Green in Exminster, we headed out of the back of the park on to Days Pottles Lane.  The walkers meanwhile were led by Rocky on a short up Deepway Lane to the motorway bridge.  We looped around some pretty cottages before embarking on a very steep road/track to join the walkers.  A fish hook near the top didn't slow the front runners down much, partly because they didn't return all the way to the back hare (i.e. me!).  We crossed the bridge and headed up towards the transmitters, before a check, from which we headed right along a narrow footpath.  The rabbits had been busy eating our flours marks along here, so the trail wasn't found quickly.  Through some shiggy, and along a ridge high above the flood plain towards the sweetie stop.  Spocky decided to get some Grizzly training in and headed down from the ridge, and then back up again!



Then back down to sea level, along the main road, and a long-short split.  I took the walkers straight to the mulled-wine and birthday-cake stop.  Bollards and Speedy led the longs who enjoyed a wealth of fish hooks.  The track took them up to the river cycle path, and then back through some very wet fields, under the motorway, and along the railway line.  The shorts had been waiting about 20 mins at the stop before the longs arrived!  Bollards and I put on mulled wine and little cup cakes to celebrate the New Year and Hole-in-1's birthday.  Then a 5 minute trek back to Deepway Green for the circle
