Driving is over with. Still alive. Worst we hit were curbs and bushes. For some reason everyone sent us through Salisbury and and Shaftesbury. The A30 was closed from Shaftesbury on so we had to detour, and ended up going in a circle and ending up right back at the road closure. The roads were so narrow, we encountered cows, schoolchildren with musical instruments, lorries, buses, bicyclists, rain, farm equipment...

On the way back we went through Branford Forum and Ringwood. It was real roads, without the hazards. It took less than 1/4 the time. Such a relief.
