HAPPY SPRING!

Who is excited for what this season has to bring? To what are you looking forward?

We have had more rain here than we have ever had in the 140 years that they have been keeping records. I am looking forward to more sunshine, comfortably temperatured weather.

Today is the official vernal equinox and Spring seems to be just starting in West Michigan. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day in the high 40s. The next few days will be less sunny and less warm, with some rain, but nothing drastic like the polar vortex we experienced for way too long.

I'm looking forward to the colors of Spring: green leaves, flowers, grass, and the snow to be melted. My front and back yards are still full of the white stuff. I'm also looking forward to sunshine and outside walks and playing in parks with my 8 Littles.

I know, it's pretty cool, huh?
Given that this is traditional Letterboxing in the UK, I suspect the stamp is Bespoke. However, I know a LOT of AQers could do it justice. Still... I think the whole thing looks kinda awesome!

I recognize a lot of those locations from our many trips there......I conned, um, I mean convinced my boss to take on a 5 million dollar project in Exeter so that we could spend oodles of time on the moors.

Letterboxing on the mythology-steeped planes of Dartmoor.

I didn't know there was an airport at Dartmoor.
Can we helicopter to the boxes?

Exeter airport is the closest......we were supposed to be choppered to Cranmere Pool for those boxes but the fog closed in and the RAF couldn't fly.....fortunately, they sent the British Army who graciously took us in by jeep.

The trailer left me wondering why the bearded guy is wearing such short shorts. Maybe that's the mystery that viewers need to solve?

Maybe he was a Croc Hunter or Sean Connery as Bond fan. They both wore short shorts.

I'm looking forward to some warm, dry weather to maybe get myself back into a boxing mood. Maybe take some short Sat./Sunday jaunts out of town. I'm tired of being stuck in the house.

Ha!!! I had a 5x7 framed photo of that scene on my desk for years. No lie. But those were swim trunks, and the shorter, the better (on Daniel Craig, not on the average beachgoing guy!).

I have a Daniel Craig series planted locally, as well as several DC LTCs. I'm kind of a fan... 🤤

Swim trunks or shorts, I classify them the same given that they both have the propensity to display a significant amount of leg.....depending upon the Brit.......

Yeah, who hasn’t been in a similar state after digging around in blackberries or under a rose bush? Totally normal.

But what about that container? That’s not going to be very water-tight On the moors. Someone needs to invest in a good Lock ‘n Lock. :-)

Apparantly, they don't get the spoiler thing, either. We should take up a collection and set it along, signing it with our trail names, so they'll be like WTH are these people on about?

Wish my logbook looked like that.

I've donated to the cause, and despite our gentle ribbing and such, I DO think this looks like it will be REALLY COOL! Shorts aside. Hmmm, maybe I need to rephrase that....

Also, I have reached out to the person/director/producer/whoever is in charge of the project, and invited them to come play with us over here at AQ. So everyone be on your best behavior!

And if nobody sees the irony in ME talking about "best behavior", then you haven't been paying attention...

I agree, it does look interesting. I don’t normally go for scary movies, but am a bit curious about this. It looks like there is a lot of good source material and interesting locations.

If you find anyone and it works, please make me next on the list to work with our 2 10-month old cocker spaniels. They are unlike any other dogs we've had in the past.

If the dogs are siblings that could EXPLAIN unexpected behavior. Littermates bond very tightly if they're together more than a few months. The often bond so tightly as to shut out their people and other animals. They get to where they need each other and often become skittish and defensive of things that are outside of the two of them. This doesn't happen to all littermates but it does happen. Our rescue group got two great danes that had to be separated to calm their negative behaviors. That was very hard on them but their behavior was so problematic they were going to be put down.
