Am I mad or do you ever do this kind of thing?
I have always loved driving and often get in my car and head off somewhere for a drive. I live in Stockport, near Manchester UK, and once wanted doughnuts so drove to Piccadily Circus in London cos Dunkin donoughts are the best ones, it was the only outlet in the UK at the time.
Sometimes it's a drive around the Lake District and back and other times it's off to Cornwall for a blast.
So it didn't come as too much of a surprise to Mrs G when I said I wanted to go to Monaco last weekend. I wanted to go through the Mont Blanc tunnel too and find those nice Italian job raods and the Monte Carlo roads too.

I love the Top Gear, TV show, races they have done through Europe where a car races against planes, tranes and other non car forms of transport. This is something I'd like to do myself. Get a load of people organised and plan a race of sorts and have a crew there just to shoot pics and videos of the 2 chosen forms of transport in the race. Anyone think I'm mad?
I have 2 routes next in Mind for a drive out. From the UK to Barcellona and then back through France and over the Millau bridge, the one that's about a mile long and as tall as Blackpool tower, and maybe route through Le Mans and then back to Blighty. My 2nd route is a drive from John o'Groats to Lands end and for a twist in the tail you can only use 200 miles of motorway, you choose the bit of motorway you want.
So, bonkers or interesting? Let me know what you think.
