    Just googled the distance from home to Kibworth, it says about 87 miles each way, with about 1 hour 43 mins! I think they are taking account of the road works on the M6 at Birmingham, however, normal travel time is usually less than that. Glad there is more than one in the car as it could become very expensive with the increased fuel costs.

    Local club

    About 150 ft. to my local club as it's in my backyard. I walk most days if it's only me, but if I need targets, I pile them on the trunk of the car. Used to drive an hour each way, but we lost that property.

    The distance I traverse from my abode to my place of shooting by automobile is by my rough estimation.... 21120 yards.

    Nope will be visiting Tondu as soon as I get a new job.. things are financially tight until work picks up or I change careers.

    Busy trying to do both..

    No, actually two guys drove 1400 miles each way to the same match from California. The airlines are a bit of a pain to deal with here when traveling with guns. So, most of us drive anytime it's possible rather than fly. The match in Texas was a Grand Prix event and we only get a few of those each year. So, it was worth the drive. :)
