Parallel Lives chapter 67

The journey to Bristol had proven to be more pleasant than any of the three had expected. Despite taking opposite directions after leaving the car park, within twenty minutes Alan had found himself about seven cars behind Jack on a major 'A' road running South, and had soon caught up with him. It had been clear that Sam Jackson and his entourage had been unable to keep up and to Alan's untutored eyes there didn't appear to be any cars tailing him. Within another twelve minutes all but one of the intervening vehicles had turned off the main road and there wasn't another car behind him anywhere in view. Eventually the intervening car decided that Jack was travelling too slow for the winding and undulating country road, certainly by local driving standards, and took an opportunity to overtake and pull away rapidly into the distance. There was enough light left for Jack to recognise Alan's car, so at the next lay-by both cars pulled up.
Jack approached Alan's window, stretching as he walked.
'Looks like we got clear then,' he said, looking at his watch, 'and I reckon another hour should do it.' Alan remained seated while Karen took the opportunity to walk around the car.
'I hope we have something to find when we get down there,' he said, 'still, nothing ventured.' They all stopped to watch a saloon car approach, slow down then speed off towards Bristol. 'Relevant?' asked Alan.
'Your guess is as good as mine,' replied Jack, 'are we going in convoy now?' Alan nodded, it seemed reasonable. 'Karen might as well stay with you, in case we get separated. It can be a nightmare in Bristol and the outskirts.' Karen agreed, they all returned to their seats and continued on their way.
