    Default Trip to Winton Historics aborted

    Fired up the SM this morning at 7am and headed off to the historic racing at Winton. The plan was to cut across central Vic via Heathcote and Puckapunyal and pick up the Hume at Seymour. Just a few km into the trip I ran into fog, and heavier fog. I persevered but the visibility was down to 50 metres and less and after missing a turn, I decided to call it a day and headed for home. Part of the trip home was on the Calder, still enshrouded in fog, and I was staggered at the speed of the vehicles (mostly 4WD) which passed me. 110/120 kph into a white wall, nowhere to run, nowhere to go.

    Stupidity has no boundaries.

    We see similar here on the F6 to Sydney. Put your hazard lights on and keep driving just as fast - seems to be the mantra.

    Glad you survived the onslaught.

    G'day,
    I think the word you are looking for is '****wit' . These people have absolutely no idea.
    One second reaction time, start to react, crash.
    Better to pull over and wait, well off the road.
    regards,
    Les W.

    Did I do anything last night that suggested I was sane?
