    Did the massive bust up when you arrived furnish you with a time machine or did it just ruin the first day of your trip?

    I thought going the a35 route from Hampshire to Devon would be better than the a303, how wrong I was..

    M6 was a bitch travelling north, ended up driving though Stoke/Newcastle as a detour! All of the jams I got caught in were due to roadworks.

    Traffic down in England really that bad? Up here in Scotland, we have like one motorway and it's still not THAT bad. :D

    Leave as early as possible and aim to be as far as possible along your chosen route by 8am. I'd be looking to do it in one go.

    Should be fine. Sunday mornings are always good times to travel anyway but more-so when it's Bank Holiday Monday.

    I'm driving down to Cornwall tomorrow - Sunday is normally less bad than Saturday.
