Thanks Mick, very enjoyable and relaxing loved the scenery. That area is beautiful. Would love to see it in person before it's my time to kick the proverbial bucket.

You had better start working on the things on your bucket list.
I am going to start as soon as my wife retires in September otherwise I am only going to get a few things ticked off the list.

A friend of mine was 74 and still working when he got cancer.
His last words to me 2 weeks before he died was don't leave it too late to start working on your bucket list. I have never forgotten those words.

I take your point mate,but i been working on mine since i was about 15yrs old.I done some,but still plenty more to go.There will never be enough time,or money,to do them all anyway,so i aint going to be too pissed off when i keel over.So far,i have had a good life,never been a millionaire,but have had many times when i lived like one.Never done wrong to anyone who did'nt deserve it on the way either.That'll do for me.
An honest mans pillow is his peace of mind.

Well said Mick.pretty much sums it all up! It takes a long time to live a lifetime. I’ve been through good times and bad times in more than one way, I’m still here. I always thought it better to wear out than rust out.

Loved the video too

For me,it's all about the scenery mate.Slashing about like a nutter,is ok for some.But what is the point if you dont savour the atmosphere.White lines flashing past,are the same in any country.

I agree with you, my friend . The scenery is fantastic and you have to drive quietly on this road. Unfortunately you may meet a car driver on the other side who thinks to be a rally champion and .....that could be an unpleasant day.
