    I was warned to avoid the Lyon rush hour, but it's ok nobody is rushing anywhere! I've achieved possibly a motorhome first, I managed to cook some Heinz tomato soup and toast two peices of bread in one particular delay and then at the next delay eat it, and at the following one wash up! (Though Waggy did have a good slurp first to help).

    As I was totally stationary at each particular point and in France, it clearly wasn't illegal, a Gendarme on the hard shoulder laughed, shook his head and then carried on writing up the car he had pulled over.

    I feel a genuine sense of achievement in the Lyon ring road challenge, I wonder if if this can be a new grading for the worlds congested commuter roads, M25 London, 404 freeway Los Angeles, Stadium Drive Bejing, Harbour Bridge Sydney ....

    Let's grade them on the meals you can cook in your motorhome, while not moving. Based on quality of meal, place settings and clearance.

    Mmmm roast dinner M5 August Bank Holiday ....... The goal is set!

    Looking forward to our first traffic jam, where Sheila can throw some food together in her cauldron. I'd be leaning out of the drivers window with a nice thick bacon sandwich, dripping with red sauce, chatting to the poor people next to us in the jam. Would it be to much to wish for that they were in a Rolls Royce ? Want to use our toilet ? Certainly, that's £50 to you !!

    :Rofl1: that's brilliant. I once made a cheese and ham sarni while in a traffic jam on the M54, did the dishes on the M6 - that's August bank holiday Monday for you!
