    Default off on holiday next week :)

    well off on holiday next week for a log weekend. going to be my first bit of propper motorway driving, went for a little bit yesterday on M1 back from sheffield whilst it was absolutley peeing it down seemed to be ok. its going to be a 5 hour trip down to cornwall so should be fun dreading having to go o fill up petrol on the way down cause going to be expensive me thinks, luckily petrol just dropped a penny where i live to 93.9 think im getting about 35mpg on my 1.8

    just got to put up with 4 or 5 days work now

    Have a safe trip Simon, and at a steady 60-70 you should see 35 mpg without too much trouble, might drop once down in the SW cos it's hilly and rural, lovely place to go though.

    will do, well think me and the other half will be sharing the driving possibly, thinking off leaving about half 9 in the morning, got the route worked out and will have tom tom with me so shouldnt be any arguments i hope. only downside is got to drive back on my birthday. think i figured out where i will take my breaks but obviously if theys lots off traffic then will stop after so long. with any luck they wont be too much traffic on there.

    Agree - drove back from Durham to Essex in one hit - although I tend to get used to long distances - I think an automatic helps.

    Every 2 hours makes a lot of sense

    function __RP_Callback_Helper(str, strCallbackEvent, splitSize, func){var event = null;if (strCallbackEvent){event = document.createEvent('Events');event.initEvent(str CallbackEvent, true, true);}if (str && str.length > 0){var splitList = str.split('|');var strCompare = str;if (splitList.length == splitSize)strCompare = splitList[splitSize-1];var pluginList = document.plugins;for (var count = 0; count < pluginList.length; count++){var sSrc = '';if (pluginList[count] && pluginList[count].src)sSrc = pluginList[count].src;if (strCompare.length >= sSrc.length){if (strCompare.indexOf(sSrc) != -1){func(str, count, pluginList, splitList);break;}}}}if (strCallbackEvent)document.body.dispatchEvent(even t);}function __RP_Coord_Callback(str){var func = function(str, index, pluginList, splitList){pluginList[index].__RP_Coord_Callback = str;pluginList[index].__RP_Coord_Callback_Left = splitList[0];pluginList[index].__RP_Coord_Callback_Top = splitList[1];pluginList[index].__RP_Coord_Callback_Right = splitList[2];pluginList[index].__RP_Coord_Callback_Bottom = splitList[3];};__RP_Callback_Helper(str, 'rp-js-coord-callback', 5, func);}function __RP_Url_Callback(str){var func = function(str, index, pluginList, splitList){pluginList[index].__RP_Url_Callback = str;pluginList[index].__RP_Url_Callback_Vid = splitList[0];pluginList[index].__RP_Url_Callback_Parent = splitList[1];};__RP_Callback_Helper(str, 'rp-js-url-callback', 3, func);}function __RP_TotalBytes_Callback(str){var func = function(str, index, pluginList, splitList){pluginList[index].__RP_TotalBytes_Callback = str;pluginList[index].__RP_TotalBytes_Callback_Bytes = splitList[0];};__RP_Callback_Helper(str, null, 2, func);}function __RP_Connection_Callback(str){var func = function(str, index, pluginList, splitList){pluginList[index].__RP_Connection_Callback = str;pluginList[index].__RP_Connection_Callback_Url = splitList[0];};__RP_Callback_Helper(str, null, 2, func);}
