Hi SS
I was spotted in Aberdeen by Dotty a few years ago.
I don't actually know if that was a first.

I see one regularly at folk festivals and dances.
There is no such thing as a normal person, only someone you don't know very well yet.

I do believe that you blokes in "Jolly Ole' England" are more likely to run into each other than those of us in the "Good Ole' USA" since the country is a lot smaller and many of you actually live with in 100 miles of each other. Here in the states we end up living about a 1000 miles away from each other. Some times being smaller has it's advantages! :lol:

Ahh yes I remember that, I was unable to stop at the time due to the traffic.

That's a prime candidate for the People of Wal Mart!

He's hardly an exemplar for getting skirts accepted on guys. I'd say much more of a debit than an asset.

Fred, you may be right but over her 100 miles if far enough to be discouraging. The roads often aren't great and can be overcrowded and slow particularly near and in large conurbations such as Leeds or Manchester. Road works, common during the summer, act as another deterrent. Going from York to Aberdeen is well within your 1000 miles at 344 miles and I have travelled it when my son was based at Lossiemouth, which is just a tad further on, but it took a hell of a long time. Depending on conditions it's between a 6 and 7 hour journey. A lot of the road is single carriageway as I remember it. Lands End to John O'Groats, considered from one end of this island to the other, is a mere 582 miles by road! And lots of people have walked it for charity.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Dennis I find it hard to believe that the road ways are not wide enough for two way traffic in this day and time. Do the people not want to allow widening of the roads? We have very few such roads here and they are basically farm roads and are not paved so that cattle and other farm animals can walk on them.

Dennis, I did a quick check. 837 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats. About 475 of these miles are in England. The rest are of course in a different country ;-)

Ah, Fred, you misunderstand.
Wide enough for only one vehicle: single track road.
One undivided strip of tarmac, irrespective of width: single carriageway (usually two lanes, i.e. a normal road; some have four lanes, but they are rare.)
Separate strips of tarmac for each direction, with a crash barrier down the middle: dual carriageway.
Dual carriageway with extra restrictions: motorway.

Single track roads are only found in the countryside, serving farms, and across large parts of the Highlands of Scotland, where there are still long stretches of main road which are single track.
Keep on skirting,

Thanks SS, the common language problem again with us being separated by a big puddle.

I think that might actually be illegal here. No seriously! In Tennessee it's illegal to expose your buttocks in public.
