    Default Journey time ?

    How long (time wise) on average, should it take me to do the following journey..?
    Starting at about 5 on a Saturday morning without getting stuck in roadworks and without breaking the 70mph speed limit !!!

    Starting from J10 on the M6 going via M5, M40, M25 anti-clockwise & finally onto the M23 to Gatwick Airport.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    I seem to remember it took me 3 1/2 hours last time we did it.
    (the entire trip, not the M25 bit !!!)

    Guess they work out about the same. I hate using the M1 though.
