2017 - Year of the road trip ....

on Sun Mar 12, 2017 5:29 am
Or so it seems ....

Already driven to Disney.
Just booked to go to Spa-Francorchamps for the 24 hour.
I need to book a weekend away with the Mrs ...
For my 30th I got a stunt driving course up in Hemel Hempstead.

Anyway, a few of us are planning a weekend mini road trip/ boys weekend ... and Cheddar Gorge has been suggested as a destination / focal point .... anyone been ?? Decent driving roads ??

Now the BM has passed 10k miles, it seems a little more spritely somehow ... which is great, but completely irrelevant, as I'm sure it won't be going on any of the above trips Laughing

And being awake at 5.30am on a Sunday too...
I've not driven in France, what's the journey like to Marne Le Ville? We've been on the train before. I quite fancy driving around have a look at a few of the non Paris, non city places

You wouldn't drive to the Paris region for pleasure ... it's completely motorway ... and the area is nothing special ...

I used to do quite a few days (Road)trips to Le Touquet ... and that's fun ... even took the Lotus over a couple of times .....

Calais .... and take the coast roads .... Boulogne -sur-mer .... Le Touquet (around surrounding villages) ... that's a better bet.

Cheddar Gorge - my back yard! Just above the gorge you have the Mendip Motorway as we call it - a series of roads running over the Mendips around Cheddar, Wells etc. In fact I'm up that way this morning for a rugby match.

Hugh's sat humming "cos I got a brand new combine 'arvester"

If you're looking at Cheddar I'm assuming it's not a boozy weekend with strippers you're after

The idea was a weekend of good driving roads, time away from the kids, and ideally a pub we can sit on all night just chewing the fat over a few beers and a burger ....

LK,if you want some stunt driving, get up here and I'll take you up some wind farms in George (still can't do manuals...).

Some serious STEEEEEEEP bits make you fill your pants, get some Tenna lady off your wife first Laughing
