Flamin traffic, M62 crash, closed whole road, mini bus and lorry, was on the news, cost me at least 45 minutes to go around, 20 miles further on near Manchestet, 4 lanes down to one due to vehicle fire, another 45 mins and miles of queuing, gets to the tunnel near Conway and another broken down vehicle and the tunnel, another 20 mins!
Over 4 hours to do 120 miles to Welsh border.
Any one know someone with a Chinook as this drivin malarkey getting behind a joke.
Oh for wide open spaces of the sea, bring on tomorrow.
Since it is now 7:30pm and not eaten, were us everyone going tonight?
