I hate this, however I still find myself flying through this very lonely highway somewhere in Wyoming. Couldn't do it without the location yet.

EDIT: Dammit, forgot to check "hide location"

Just wanted to know out of curiosity, has Google done a Street View of the Nurburgring yet? Or Le Mans?

Spent ages getting to the end of this country road thinking how nice the scenery looks/how much I wished it was summer. Get to a main road and turns out I was only about 15 minutes drive from my house (Sandon, Staffordshire). I was convinced I was in Devon or something.

I'm gonna start a new one...



Typical, in a field with one sheep. you bathplugs!!!

I'm assuming ive been placed in wales, no names to these narrow field roads, so if i keep going further south I'll end up in traffic...

...discovered a farmhouse, two people looking at me all wierd as if i look like a google streetmap camera

OOH, roadsign, 13 miles to carlisle!!!

Still no road names, however local houses for local people, there is nothing for me here...

Now heading west, I believe getting closer to carlisle. But I appear to be heading back into the countryside...

...ah, road markings, much better...

...a crossroads with a church....no sign of the name of the place....spookeh...
