Unless you're travelling in the middle of the day (1100hrs - 1500hrs) there is plenty of potential for hold-ups.

avoid at all costs on a Friday!

having said all that, it can be fine........

just the luck of the draw
There's also speed cameras.

It goes slow as its one of those stupid roads which can't make its mind up whether its a by-pass or not ... switching between double and single lanes.

I'd suggest the m4 and then cut off after Swindon at some point might be an option from the east side of the country :)

Thanks guys.
We're coming from so far away that changing routes means only 20 minutes difference so we'll go East to Peterbourgh and down through Birmingham, etc, etc, on the M5.

Thanks!!!
:D
Peterborough to Brum on the A14? :shock: good luck there mate!!

only (slightly) joking......

If you had the choice; Feldberg or Piippo? :)

On a more interesting note ... who do you think will win?

I want to see how the top players enjoy holes such as Badgers Hotel :twisted:

I can confirm that the PDF booklet's pars match the information which Charlie originally sent me. Whether they were incorrect to start with I don't know!

I'll bring a basket base, hopefully it will fit.

I lost my phone last week:-( and now have a replacement sim card, but does anybody have a spare phone which can be used with O2, and which they could lend me until I can get the i-phone 4?
