Yawn! My parents caught the overnight bus home from Stockton, then caught the first train on the Sandringham line, arriving home around 6 am ... but Jilly the dog didn't let them sneak in. She barked like crazy, waking up the entire house ... well actually block, cos grandma in the granny flat out the back woke up as well.
They had a good trip. Interestingly, mum's bottom got sore despite having the seat she wanted (my roadie seat). I'm looking forward to getting my seat back tomorrow!
So welcome home everyone
P.S. Here are my mum's stats for the ride, on my hybrid (using my odometer)
Trip time 45 hr 33 min
Av speed 16.54 km/hr
Max speed 50.97 km/hr (to the shock horror of grandma - i.e. her mum)
Trip up (i.e. total distance for the trip) 796.10 km
I bet other forumers who went on the ride can beat my mum's max speed!
