The call is unspoken, never unheard. It would be nice. The only Scotland trip I made this year was Edinburgh for a business conference. But then I have to say Dartmoor and Bodmin were in no way an 'instead of'. Need to try and fit everything in. Impossible :-)

I gave up on 'everything' many years ago when I decided it was much more interesting to study a site and its surroundings in much greater detail then dashing from place to place. By doing this I got to realise how much more there was to a site than had been previously published.

How true that is, just starting to enjoy the pleasures of understanding single sites in more detail rather than just dashing from place to place, although I do enjoy that as well. Problem is, still so much to see and experience and not enough time

I think the dashing about is perfectly fine if say you were off on a business trip up country for instance to an area you'd not visited before and made a whistle-stop tour on two or three sites you'd also not seen before.
Of course I am very fortunate in having Bodmin Moor right on my doorstep so easy for me to re-visit a sight as often as I like to double[-check things and take readings and measurements virtually at will. Bloody good excuse to get out there again as well :-)
