Hi Folks

Hey strangers!

Long time no blog!

sorry I have not been around much recently been very busy!

As most of you will know it has changed much at Hindhead over the last month or so. I will be going to take some photo's next weekend and upload them onto here.

I am also going to be running a silent auction for a very exciting item I have in my possession. When I went through the tunnel in Febraury 2009 I was given one of the original teeth they used on the diggers when the started diggin the tunnel. The way it will work is that I will set a time limit probably a few weeks. If you are interested then email me at dave.work@hotmail.co.uk with an offer. I will then reply directly to you.

Good luck everybody!

And now the end is near.......













































Hi everyone,



Sorry not been around for a bit, been a bit busy!




Went up to a very quiet Hindhead at rush hour this eveing. As you can see the traffic lights have now been turned off for ever (sob sob not really!) with work due to start on converting them to 2 mini roundabouts in the next week or so.




Also I took a couple of photo's of the work being carried out at the end of Headley Road. This is progressing nicely and should only last for another couple of weeks.




I also drove down to the Gibbet to see what is happening to the old road. It is totally different now, as you can see, and looks nothing like it used to!




Keep on driving..............

Not Long Now


Bonjour all my lovely readers!

OK so here is a better picture of where I am currently sitting writing this post!

The tent is where myself, the wife and kids are staying and the caravan is the mother in law's, which is god as we can lock from the outside and shut her in! yay!

Only 4 days until I make the 682 mile journey home and finally get to go through the tunnel, can't flipping wait!

I will be going through a similar tunnel at Rouen on the way home so will try and get some pics of that one.

I was thinking of maybe going for a beer on Sunday at the punchbowl. Meet at the Miss James bridge and then walk up for a quick drink. If anyone wants to join me then leave a comment on this post so I know if anyone is going to turn up!

Until Thursday folks,

keep on driving..............
