Used to drive up and down to London frequently, I'd get home and think, I don't remember driving through X. It was as if I had an internal auto pilot that got me home. Anyone else experience this?
Quite often cycle familiar routes on auto pilot and not particularly remember the boring bits but deal perfectly safely with junctions, helping traffic overtake, unexpected hazards, etc; and if anywhere near Biggin Hill have an ear cocked for the sound of a Merlin engine. Don't drive that much these days so tend to concentrate more because I am aware I'm a bit rusty and usually not familiar with the car I'm driving.
