And now my flight is delayed by 50 minutes. It's absolutely cooking in this departure area and can't see a way outside to cool off, and I can't take off any more clothes or I will get arrested!

I'm officially knackered. Had a nice cuppa and natter with Jim, and then went round the corner,filled up with fuel and headed for the m1 and found a car park. It took a bloody hour to do the first 5 miles.then it speeded up and slowed down all the way to the M6, which I ignored and kept on the M1.it wasn't too bad after that but a lot of time at 30 to 40 mph. The main thing is the car is running great, nice light clutch, the bite is quite low, so the first thing I did was stall it! So I was at Penrith at 21.50, 108 miles from the turn off into Glasgow, I had already phoned Bill to say I was late and would see him in the morning, the eta for the b&b was 11.31. I phoned them and said I'm going to be a bit late, they said try to get here for 11. I arrived at 11.03. I will admit to exceeding the speed limit on occasion [emoji13] like every inch of the 108 miles! I'm expecting a ticket, spotting the police car and standing on the brakes and getting 40mph off, but was I quick enough braking? Time will tell. If I do get a ticket I will have no complaints, just have to hold my hands up and say it's a fair cop, pay the fine and get the points.

So the car is an excellent cruiser, stable at speed, into 3 figures too often. The M74 is a private test track I'm sure! I loved passing a bmw 325 at ??? Mph and he couldn't keep up! I then let him past just so I could pass him again. Sometimes I think I'm still a child hee hee

Delighted to hear all is good despite the traffic Davie :D

Yes, the Activa really excels as a cruiser...

Enjoy the rest of the trip and really good to see you yesterday despite the less than ideal circumstances...

Hey....you got the car back !....wheeeeeeeee

Plod Cars do not carry recording equipment David.....unless it was a MoneyVan you will be OK I would think.
Average Speed Cameras are the main concern....hence I always have a TomTom with me...and why I WILL get round to fitting cruse at some point.

I ? may ? have a set of door shuts for you....PM me later today

Well I am awake, ready to go have breakfast, go to Bills then get on the way home. I'm really glad I did stop and have a sleep. I really would not have enjoyed the rest of the way home had I carried on. Today is going to be an anti motorway day, and I am going to enjoy it! 370 miles done yesterday, maybe 200 windy ones to do today [emoji39]

I shall post back later once home.

Safe trip back Davie. If I wasn't working in Edinburgh today I'd of got my Activa out and followed you as far as Fort William :( Would have been good to give it a run too.

Ho hum! Bills need paid!

David.
