So autumn came and I felt I hadn't done any real miles this year and decided to head for from Berkshire to Scotland via Fenland and miss the A1 by travelling on the back roads to the east in Lincolnshire as far as possible, then over the Humber Bridge. It was a slight shock to realise that once I'd crossed the Humber I still had 220 miles to reach my next stop with old mates on the Scottish border and I was already feeling creaky by then! Andrew
