As the crow flies Figueira is 125km from the nearest point of Spain, and 179km to the easiest to get to border crossing. To that border crossing its 254km by road, about 2 hours or so

Thanks for visit my country, but your 58.6 km is nothing compared to the 4,645.5 km I have clinched .
And you have been to the US, but the guy that has clinched more lenght on I-states knows EVERY meter of they!

To investigate Rober Kubica's serious crash better they...repeated it:

Note how the guardrail goes in through the front of the car and out from the driver's side glass.


Maybe someone can translate the most important bits?

You have to open a new thread for that. On Highways & Autobahns forum you have this button

If you want to make a new thread with a poll attached I sugest you to make some tests in the Testing section.

So this happened to new guard rail, not the old one (which are usually less strong)?

It is 24°C here in Northern Slovakia (coldest part of the country) but I saw a guy in a ski coat.

Finally we will get some warmer weather in the CE.

Greetings from Madrid, the Crazy City! I'm sitting on Pueta de Moros enjoying someone's open WiFi and beautiful weather, much different to the one that was soaking Poland wge I was leaving

Going to Berlin for a short vacation, my planned journey there:

and back:
http://maps.google.de/maps?saddr=Mon...sz=7&via=1&z=7

Just to clinch most possible roads without making the trip too long...

Nice trip

"Monaco di Baviera"

A93 is a nice drive, not a lot of traffic (a lot of exits though) and nice scenery every now and then. I'm curious about A72, I've never driven it (except for the short section near Hof). A9 north of Leipzig seems pretty boring though.

Yes, in Italian it would get confused with "Monaco" the French-speaking Principality, so we always add "di Baviera"

I just bought a new camera, maybe I could take some pictures... but I fear my girlfriend would not understand if I ask her to take pictures of the road

I succesfully made my girlfriend understand my weird passion and now she takes road pictures for me when I drive and she is in the right seat
