    BSB testing cancelled at Guadix today because of snow, Hilldweller. OK it is round the edge of the Sierra Nevada, but any place that's sinposted from just outside Almeria getting flipping snow has gotta be a bit scary!!!

    Greetings All,

    Just arrived home in Cornwall after getting off the Santander ferry this eveing.

    Yesterday we travelled the A68 from Haro to Bilbao and to say that the trip was interesting is understatement of the year.:Eeek:

    The long haul up the hill from Bilbao was littered with lorries pointing in all directions and the snow ploughs were unable to get past those that were all over the road.

    We were fortunate in leaving Haro at 10am and we only just made it to the summit before that became impassable.
    Greetings to all those we left behind in Benicassim. Enjoy the Spring.

It just shows what is taken for granted and if that is threatened!!. Now a warm Al.
