Rather you than me Steve. Was there any time when you lost track of the road?

I think you´re a little bit crazy Steve . Scared me in places and I´m in a nice warm house.
It was better after turning the sound off.

I'm Jan

Makes me feel cold just watching that Steve.

It all looks like a cracking trip, nice one.

Good Morning Jiwawa,and everyone

I was thinking of doing a silent movie....... but I thought you could turn the sound off if you didnt like it. Did I lose track of the road, no is the answer to that one they have snow poles in the snow at regular intervals.I drove at a pace that enabled me to maintain momentum on the climbs with the snow chains on the drive axle tyres.Before I set off to leave I spoke to the snow plough driver and he said the road was open with care.That was good enough for me.. I chose this time of year as it was early winter.Here is a lovely video of some one else that went in full on winter.AS this one is my last entry If anyone looks at this in the future and thinks they would like to do that trip at that time of year. DO NOT SKIMP ON YOUR TYRES.UK SNOW TYRES ARE NOT UP TO IT.Keep your fresh water inside because outside it is going to freeze solid.Hang a continental quilt across your back doors inside that way you will not see your ice encrusted rear doors.Oh and enjoy every moment even the nervous bum cork ones.Thank you for reading and merry xmas to you all.

Wasn't it you Steve who reported the toilet cassette had also frozen? How did that go? I take it there were no leaks (sorry for the pun!) after it defrosted? That could have put the kaibosh on your trip!

Yes the toilet cassette had frozen solid.It wasn't full at the time so there was enough room for the contents to expand during the thaw.OMG what a topic ey

This has just convinced me we did the right thing in moving from the van to the car to venture out.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.
