WOW! I’ve got been driving for 14 years!! I was a late starting, did not start learning till I was 23 and passed when I was 24! But most people, now learn the second they turn 17. Back then, I had no interest at learning at all! When I was 17, I was way, way to busy coming out and going out on the LGBT scene in Glasgow!

Check out the post, from all them 14 years ago here.

On the way back from Scotland, I stopped off at the Tan Hill Inn, which is the is the highest inn in the British Isles at 1,732 feet (528 metres) above sea level. I bet, it would be a great place to cycle to!!

Driving all the way from Castle Bytham in Lincolnshire, to Killearn in Scotland! A drive of just over 320 miles!

The route starts in Castle Bytham, then the A1, A66, M6, A74(M), some back roads, Glasgow and to Killearn in Scotland.

Another video of myself driving from Little Bytham to the Peterborough Greyhounds, my place of work. All thanks to video time lapse, using my Garmin VIRB Elite action camera.

During this video, I set the time lapse interval to every 1/2 seconds. Then used Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 11.0 to speed the video up a bit.

Was hoping to take the same route, has last time. But King Street, was closed at West Deeping. So had to go via Langtoft. Which is where, I am in traffic queue for a bit. Around 28 seconds into the video.

But still got to work on time, which is of course the main thing!

Driving from Little Bytham to the Peterborough Greyhounds, my place of work in record time! All thanks to video time lapse, using my Garmin VIRB Elite action camera.

I am just playing around with time lapse. Since, next time I drive to Scotland. I am hoping to film the whole journey.

During this video, I set the time lapse interval to every 2 seconds. Will try every 1 second the next time.

I still remember posting this photo, when he had done only 999 miles. Back in November 2009.

Many of you will know, that I should have got to Scotland by now!! I was due to drive up on Sunday. But on Friday night on the way back from work, my car started to make a hell of a noise. So I took it to the local garage Saturday morning.

They took one look at it and said looks like one of the brake calipers have gone. They put it up on the ramps and trying to spin the back wheel and it just stopped!! So they told me, it was best not to drive it!

Just a new caliper cost £209! Then it needed a new break disc and pads. Then add labour to that. It came to a total of £492.62!

At least my car is back on the road. So I can now set off to Scotland in the morning. Some 48 hours later, then I was first hoping…
