Looooong Drive

As it happened the M25 was gridlocked before the M4 exit on the way there and that together with the Jazz festivals and vintage car rallys in the area meant it took me nearly 4 hrs to get to the site. On the way back a fatality closed the M25 completely and I had to cut through the centre of london to avoid the M25 completely. Another 3hr trip. Lugged the glider up the hill but after watching the wind switching around and the brave pilots who flew bombing out decided it was not worth the long carry out for a 5 min flight. The forecast was for sun and SW winds, it was overcast and everything from SW to NW, Oh the fabulous british summer. Current score, 7Hrs driving and 0Hrs flying.
