Kent to Mayrhofen and back, 1800 mile round trip, lost count of the fuel stops. Didn't look at the bank balance afterwards either, still in dept now.
Was fun though.

In the evo, about 370 miles from Meersburg on lake Constance, to Spa - but mostly on Autobahnen so it was not hard.

On a bike i did Brno in the Czech Republic to Arneheim in Holland which is around 675 miles, took about 15 hours with rests and fuel stops.

I think the most I've driven my Evo in one day was about 250ish, Aberdeen-Elgin, around Elgin, and then on to Lossiemouth, across to Findhorn, then back to Lossiemouth to pick up the misses then on to Fraserburgh then back home to Aberdeen, quite a good drive, lots of narrow/twisty roads, long straights etc, I think that was the time I got about 29mpg too, which I thought was bloody good.

One Sunday morning!!

Went to airport, waited 2 hours, flew to edinburgh, then taxi to train station, got train to cumbria((no fast trains here..Fooockin hell!),waited for a mate to pic me up at the station,, then drove me to barrow in ferness?(or summat like that,could see the sea)to view the car..great car! bought it,couldnt stay long as i was in a hurry!!

now 4 pm...
Cumbria to Dover 330 miles..oh wait,just a few miles before kent i think?,road /Motorway blocked,traffic!! ,Police said,turn around,drive another way.FOOOOOOOOOCK!!

So my satnav was losing its signal..lost signal..dammit,i dont know my way round here!!

FOOOOOOOOOOCK!!

Saw a line of truckers,,followed them figuring..its late at night,the trucks must be heading to Dover for the ferry

i was right..thank goodness!

So made it, no ferrys in sight.."you just missed it..

"ferry just left....So youll have to wait till 2am.." FOOOOOOOOOOOCK!!

waited for the next one... was a rough crossing,no food served at that late hour..no sleep..

5am monday morning..

arrived in Dunkirque .. now cruising thru belgium.. Accident on motorway! traffic!! FOOOOOOOOOCK..decided to get a bite to eat...tasted like ****e really,and all i ordered was bacon n eggs,cant go wrong with that??Spilled coffee on mi trousers..FOOOOOOOOOOOOCK!!

now back onto road,heading for Luxemborg.. then getting closer to home!!

WTF?? Theyre still fixing the Pellinger Tunnel?? FOOOOOOOOOOOOCK!! another detour through litle villages and more traffic!!

Got home at midday and fell into bed.

= A whole lot of time for just 650ish miles.

From the days when I was posted in Germany I went from Celle to Chester via Calais Dover on the ferry, that just tipped over the 700 mile mark.

I had to fill up after 100 miles from a full tank thanks to the Autobahn's
