Probably when I am at my happiest...blasting through Europe with a bunch of fellow enthusiasts. Planning on the NC500 in May with mate Jules (no doubt Athol, Gary and Matt will show their faces)

Really miss it, plus just jumping on a plane with the wife and heading to places like Verona to watch some aged 89/90’s group in the most amazing Coliseum.

Seen Duran Duran and Kravitz. Highly recommend it.

You can see the Coliseum in the background:

Out of curiosity, what’s the best way to plan for the NC500 when living in the south?

Do the 10h drive each way? Given its an extra 2/3day R/T - and not sure how fun most of the drive it.

or

Get the car transported to Edinburgh/ Inverness?
I'd transport the car if you can to Glasgow or Edinburgh, depending on whether you're planning to do it clockwise or anti-clockwise. The west coast is far more pretty so it's better to load the days to the stretch from Skye to Dornoch if you can and cover more miles in less day on the east side. It's easy to get a cheap flight or train to Glasgow/Edinburgh and plenty of forum members here i'm sure will be happy to receive a car or two for you, myself included. I have space at my house for 4 or 5 cars to arrive and await their drivers for example. Then fly up, get your car, and get going.

Perhaps more than most I see how short life can be and why we should live for “the moment” within reason.

I love the idea of road trips - on my own - with mates - with fellow enthusiasts/ mates, even Mrs Scaf.

I think it would be great if there was a dedicated place on here where those who have done all the hard work of researching road trips can post the details for the rest of us to take advantage of.

There are lots of threads. Putting them all into one place would be tricky.

Search for Monaco or Bust, Viva Espana, Tuscan Tea Party or, soon, Viva Tea Party or Bust, the greatest hits tour in 2021.

I agree. It would be good to create a thread under the car meet up section where people would post their actual routes, and potentially hotel / restaurant recommendation (old school a la Michelin guide :)
