The long overland home stretched ahead for our depleted crew of five. Paul & Lance, Mike and Steve, and now Robin on his own with Susan & Patrick, Heather & Dianne flying home from Malaga. In losing Patrick, we now had no insured spare driver, so accidents / illness were not optional.
A normal stop at the many vineyards of Spain was tempting, but drive we must.
The distant hills and intense heat threatened to lull us into sleep at the wheel, so more rests, lots of water and infusions of Red Bull saw us through 399 miles in an eye-watering 16 hour day.
Compensation lay in steak and chips at a local eatery.
A planned blast north was revised to a slightly more doable three days, still a real challenge after so many miles in the saddle.
