Looking at the rain patterns, Steve needs to get himself as far south of the M4 as possible.

Breakfast at Bampton, by the looks of it. He's heading east again.

Good luck Steve!

Looks like we may be in for a Gibbon...
I do find anything involving ball bearings oddly satisfying

And a lunch at home maybe. Rain's been light, winds not too bad, and quite warm. Hope to see more miles this afternoon which should be dryer.

Here in Glos it's blowing a hoolie and that's forecast  to reach MK soon. Direction towards Acle. Tomorrow forecast is light and reversed.

If he could get to Acle or thereabouts tonight that would be excellent.

Go Steve!

Hopefully he's got a better route than the A47 this time  ::-).

Well, he's off again, after seeing Esther.

I'm worried by Steve's prolonged stop near Feltwell. So far as I can see he has become bogged down at the factory/HQ of "Bird Brand", manufacturers of creosote and other wood preservers. I can't see any positive reason for him being there.

He's on the way again and heading east. Maybe he found somewhere for 40 winks, but he seems to have been there for long enough for the tracker to lay down 14 points with very little movement between them.

Phew!
You won. Get over it.

Now he's stopped on the Thetford road where there appears to be absolutely buggerall. I ought to go to bed...
