Driving in Suffolk after four years in the USA was a shock - I swear the roads around Drinkstone have shrunk since I left.

Chelsea tractors mostly: the massive SUV craze seems to have taken hold there and some people drive them round those tiny lanes like idiots. Several times my humble rented Astra was literally forced off the road by a Nissan Behemoth or similar.

Hi Guys

I really should look at this forum more often. Was only saying to the OH that noone from our neck seems to be on here.
We are bang inbetween Diss and Bury St Edumnds and are looking to get out to Melbourne in the next 18 mths.
Would be great to catch up with you Norfolk/Suffolk types
