off the beaten track

Most of my work involves driving up and down motorways which has limited appeal so it was lovely to get off the beaten track for a short while whilst delivering furniture to some rural schools.

I headed of into the hills and soon found myself on a rather narrow road

which got even narrower

after the delivery i thought I'd try a different route but that was even narrower

and kept getting narrower

ok the last picture isn't true but you get the idea.

I had to fold in the mirrors and I was touching both sides of the road.

I love the countryside but I'm not sure about sat navs hehe

(uggg, I've just noticed the road kill on the last picture!)

Kind of looks like my driveway. The oilman threatened not to bring oil in last winter because the trees, scratched his truck. I said something along the lines, "Big deal, it's not your truck" and "I'm not cutting my trees out and that's final!" This year is another year.

I'll be happy to deliver your oil, who needs a shiney truck!
