Re: @ JeffyPooh - "...mockery..."
@Koch "...when I was 20..."
When I was but a wee lad and had the inevitable hot hatch, I did ~2000 km commutes with an average speed... oh, never mind... ...overnight. Been there, done that, t-shirt and souvenir SOTs.
But now that I'm older and just happen to have a nice big loaded Mercedes that's got a couple of gears left when the hot hatches are all out of ideas, it somehow seems more pleasant to go about 1 Mm/day.
The big Merc is fully capable of shrinking Canadian provinces to the size of a small coconut, but I just can't be bothered, ...most of the time.
'Kock'? Ah, I think that Clarkson's been talking about you. :-)
