A very busy day today. First a shockingly early regularity at 07.50. That’s 06.50 in the UK! Dark and icy. Seemed to go well enough as did the many other day time tests. No dramas just routine timekeeping and accurate navigation.
Frantic pre-night plotting on the ‘Brits’ table.
The night section was a great route comprising of many difficult regularities on some very icy minor roads in Austria. We elected to fit chains near the start and they worked well giving us great hill climbing confidence. We had what seems to be a good night with not too much time lost. The most amazing two ice covered hillclimbs were more flat out driving than regularity. I am certain nobody was early. Minus 14C was spotted on our external temperature gauge and it seemed that cold.
Food news..No Schnitzel today but an excellent Strudel at the top of one of the hillclimbs.
Tomorrow gives us a more relaxed 09.15 start and my bed beckons so more news tomorrow.
