Well,folks........
 Peggy isn't my "A" list of driving companions any time soon either. 

Even in Wisconsin, I haven't driven through cow manure.

OK.........Down a  hill across a hay field, and into the brook on my way to 
Rinke's house.........OK, maybe.......

But never through cow manure in the moors.

      Jane's tale of her trips around the country reminded me of a night 
  in England...a friend and I were driving around, trying to follow the 
  directions to the B&B where we
  were staying.........well...the farmer's wife had said "as you come down 
  the road you are on now you will come to a wide spot where 4 other roads 
  join up.  Go straight across and up the hill and we are at the top."
         Yeah, right.  Well...we went straight across and up the hill, on 
  what felt like a wide path thru the mud...it was definitely not a road.  
  Almost at the top, the path got a little
  wider and we could make out the shape of a building off to our right (My 
  side, since I was driving)...pulled in to what turned out to be a 
  barnyard...about a dozen Border Collies and mutts came bounding out 
  barking their heads off...lights came on in the house and we saw a man 
  in the window with a big gun...so we left."
      Figured there was a way to go yet before we got to the top...so 
  continued climbing up, up, up...until the path leveled off.  We were in 
  grass that was higher than the roof
  of our rental car...and no more path.  Crossing our fingers and praying, 
  we got turned around and decided we'd taken the wrong road...so we'd go 
  back down to the place where
  the 5 roads came together.
         Got to tell you...no lights at all except from our car...and 
  pitch black it was...we were slipping and sliding all the way, and my 
  friend Alexa was praying out loud by now,
  altho I couldn't understand why, since SHE was on the safe side, while 
  I, the driver, was on the side that seemed to just sheer off into 
  nothingness...............  I really do mean we
  were slipping like mad........
      We finally got back down to the same phone box where we'd called the 
  farmer who had the B&B, and called again.  It was past midnite now...and 
  the farmer sent his wife
  to get us.
         Yes, we'd taken the wrong road.  The poor lady laughed at us in a 
  rather bewildered road...but we had a cuppa and went to sleep in our 
  rooms.  In the morning, we went down to breakfast and discovered that 
  all the neighboring farmers and their wives had been invited to come and 
  meet the crazy Americans............the LUCKY Americans, as it turned out.

      We'd been up and down a cow path that no car had ever driven on 
  before...no wonder we were sliding all over the place...the path was 
  covered in cow flops.......and in the warm
  summer nite, they were very soft and slippery.............    The place 
  at the top with the very tall grass was a part of the 
  moors............not a good place to be in the middle of
  the nite!           
         Some of you, I know, can very well picture what it was 
  like...driving up and down a very steep and narrow path that was full of 
  flops.........in the pitch dark ------

  I don't think I'll ever drive anywhere with Jane, either!
