    3 hrs 45 mins to do 12 miles, was not in a good mood before this as bodyshop rang me yesterday morning to say my car was ready to be picked up this morning. Then they rang me back yesterday afternoon to say that they had scraped it whilst taking it to be valleted, wont be ready until saturday morning now....... I hope for their sake they have done a good job.

    sjj84,

    DTM_Chris was coming to my place in Chatham from Sittingbourne.. Too many big hills

    It took me 3.5 hours to do 4 miles through the centre of Chatham, my first time driving in snow so I took the flatest route I could!

    I think you were very lucky The towns wern't moving
