Reminds me of travelling through the alpine regions on the challenge when Mat broke into a superb rendition of " the hills are alive" over the airwaves on the C.B. radio, surely a highlight of the challenge. Well apart from "ugga bugga"!! :D

Im going away for the jubilee, but I have just heard that on July 9th they are closing the A5 at Dunstable from 6.30 am until 10.15 because some twat wants to run along the road holding a firey torch.
That part of the A5 is always very busy on a Monday morning and if theres any problems on the M1 guess where all the traffic go's.
Last time there was a crash on the M1 it took me 1 hour and 45 minutes to travel 16 miles to get the kids to school :twisted:
