My sister-in-law will go for Route 66 in a few years. Looking forward to being the new Thelma and Louise :)

Having used the 405 when was over in LA, I'd say "similar, but different". in both cases too many vehicles for the amount of tarmac, and the "locals" wanting to get there NOW, with the odd bemused tourist thrown in for good measure. The 405 has wider lanes and more of them (most of the way) - the M42 is only 2 lanes (or at least the bit I use) and the interchange between the M42 and the M6 can be "quite exciting" if there is no traffic around, but in the rush hour you can't have any fun unless its avoiding the truck that decides to drift across - taking minutes to do so because forward motion is so slow...

Ah well, shower and out to the delights, M42 here we come.

Yeah well Caltrans is adding 2 car pool lanes to the 405 around the Sepulveda Pass area, which means new on/off ramps and new bridges, plus new temporary headaches...

At least they are ADDING lanes, over here they just get the paint and cameras out and reduce the number of available lanes and take pictures (until the cameras get "improved by removal"/"aka stolen")

I've just noticed - today is the tenth anniversary of me joining S@H.
Which is as good an excuse as any for a "little" party down here.

Drinks/food anyone?

Oh Rob what bad timing!! I'm having an op in day surgery today with a general, so I am off the beer from Tuesday until the weekend. But I'll have one with you then.

I persuaded somebody to do a selection of sweet and savoury snacks.

Excuse me while I make some real coffee. This stuff looks like washing up water.

You obviously didn't get your coffee from the Italian trained Koala, but one of the "7 day" team, or worse still the "14 day" team.

"Italian" koala? I thought they were all Aussies.
My coffee was brought by a full-sized 'roo - and a right strong cuppa it was, too. Good as we made in the engineroom, but no hydraulic oil.....

Julie, if you ask him nicely he will do you that quality in any size drinking vessel you desire up to 2,000ml - now that would be a wakeup call ;-)
