Default Travelling Again

Morning All.
This one is not for the happiest of occasions. Another funeral. This time one of my Army friends that I've known since we were fifteen, 67 years ago.
Today I am driving to Chepstow via M6 and M5 to overnight.
Friday driving via M4 to Port Talbot for the service.

After the service driving home to Wigan via Bridgend, for a cuppa, and through the Brecons.
Just advance warning. If you think you see, me you have.

Safe journey Ray. But I live in Devon, so if I think I've seen you, you're lost!

Safe trip, Ray. You’ll be lost if I see you, too!

Hi All.
I am back home safe.
I didn't do The Brecons on the way home. After some local advice about the Welsh Sheriffs being a bit keen on stopping cars for traversing the Border, I decided that they wouldn't want to stop me on the Motorway.
Discretion being the better part of valour, I went M4, M5 and M6 and did it in 3 hours, Bridgend to Wigan. Pretty good run especially on a Friday afternoon.
Weather at the crematorium was sunny with a little wind though it did rain a bit whilst we were in the Chapel.
