I decided against staying up for the bells and drinking last night, as I was tired from work and decided to go out for a reasonably early drive as the weather forcast was favourable, and i'd feel an idiot for not taking advantage of when the roads would be quiet. It was excellent, no cars in sight. I left Helensburgh and headed up Loch Lomand, then over the rest and be thankful pass, and continued along to inverarry. I turned off here and headed over to Dalmally and headed down to Tyndrum (Scumbag will know what I am on about) and down towards Loch lomand and home again. The skies were blue, the roads were deserted (and I didn't speed) but had a whale of a time. The E class can really handle a twisty road and the comfort on offer was excellent. However there is virtually no fuel in the tank now (it was 3/8s full) when I left and I need to get to work tomorrow, will petrol stations be open tomorrow AM or will I have to take the train? I don't regret it as the drive was so much fun Anyway, I put this up as it was a nice, but very different way to see in 2009. How did others on here see in 09 and how did they celebrate it.
