According to the route planner , it's 230 miles from home , so that should make a nice day out , weather permitting .

I am jealous. Looks like those roads have a lot of run out in case of a mistake negoiating a turn. Those roads look familiar to me. Are they in Scotland?

I went to school in Keswick for 3 years , and love the Lake district .
The only time I've been on these roads , is on the day I got married , when I took the wife [ and our witnesses ] up these passes ..............in our Kia Sedona ................. [ SWMBO spent most of the trip with a book covering her eyes ] ..........
