We are travelling to Looe from the Nottingham/Derby area this Friday, 25th July. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for surviving the journey. I thought leaving around 5am would be sufficient to miss most of the traffic but my husband, who is driving, wants to leave at 1am! I am not really keen on this for many reasons. Him and the children will be so tired that day and the next that they will all be grumpy, we can't get into the holiday home until 3pm and would arrive before breakfast, we wouldn't have anywhere to nap/change/relax after the long etc. He thinks I am being unreasonable and that we will hit traffic about 7am and just sit still for hours. I just wondered if anyone had any experience of this route on a Friday, where are good places to stop, what times the jams start etc so I can concince him 5am is early enough!
