We had some great fun driving today with Brett driving the whole route without swapping over. We started out badly when we did not have any gadgets charged to navigate, take pictures with due to silly Swiss plug sockets. This is where La Poke'ya'Moms stepped in. They allowed us to charge our stuff in their car whilst we followed them for direction. This allowed us to get our Google maps back and get pictures! We pretty much stayed together for the whole route even having a massive water fight along the way. We blatantly won by the way.
Another eventful situation when we saw a car burst into flames on the side of the road. We were about to pull over to help the Italian driver with our fire extinguisher but he managed to get it out quickly himself.
Anyway, we just checked into our hotel, about to shower to get rid of thee smell of clutch and brake dust. Really in need of a beer or 6.
So two passes down and the car is still going despite popping out of gear on the down hill. On the plus side the gears have stuck around so that's good. My enchanter friend has now convinced me it's a good idea to do the next pass too so I have decided that if we make it I shall bask in the collective glory and if we don't it will be all his fault...
