461 Roadtrip

I went to Wiltshire today, I had to go for a work related meeting. They gave me a hire car for the trip, a BMW 318i automatic. I’ve never driven a BMW before, it was an interesting experience, it’s also the first time that I’ve driven a petrol car since May, just about 6 months.

The outward journey didn’t really go all that well. It started going wrong when I took the wrong exit out of a reasonably complex junction at Andover (I’d just followed the car’s satnav – personally I’d have gone a different route). I left the A303, was negotiating the junction, and took the exit that brought me back on to the 303.

SatNavs and I don’t really get on that well. For some reason they think I love really narrow country lanes. The stupid thing is I let them lead me that way. I should should just say “No, I’m not going to”. I arrived at the meeting venue thirty minutes late.

On leaving the venue, I decide I am going to take route that I know. A350, M4, A34, M27. A bit longer, but a faster route where unless something goes seriously wrong means you are always moving. I’m wondering if travelling during rush hour counts as something going seriously wrong? From the bottom of the A34 to around the viaduct in Fareham was pretty much a single traffic jam. Seriously frustrating.

I find that when I get in to a car for a longish journey, all I want to do is fall asleep. Not good. It kind of puts me off long car journeys.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
