In the first instance go to The Society for All British and Irish Road Enthusiasts (SABRE) for all the guff and more.
My grandfather was a locomotive engineer (aka driver) for the London and Northwest Railway (LNWR) and later the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS), hence my interest in railways. My father was proud to be a family man, and car owner from 1959 until his death in 2016. He helped me to read maps and roadbooks when I was a boy, hence my interest in Ordnance Survey maps.
Our family moved home a lot during the 1950s and 60s. We clocked up a lot of miles visting my grandparents and other relatives. In the old bangers dad owned, we often travelled on holidays by car, later towing a caravan. I became somewhat obsessed by roads and map as I grew up.
Along side this I developed a keen interest in archaeology, especially Roman roads, thus tying all my enthusiasms into a big road-related bundle.
