I geared up and headed along the M5. Traffic was sporadic, and I arrived at JN25 in plenty of time and parked up at the meeting point - a pretty useless petrol station (no petrol!). Here's a photo of the bike.
I had a bit of a wait, but then heard sirens in the distance, and knew my colleague from Weston was almost there. He arrived on a lovely BMW, handed over the package, and I headed off back down the M5 to Exeter.
A couple of Police cars passed me on their way to an accident. There was quite a pile-up around JN27, which slowed my progress somewhat, but I was soon at JN30 and on my way into Exeter.
I arrived at RD&E and headed for the main reception. The receptionist was primed for my arrival, and guided me to Intensive Care. I handed over the package to a waiting nurse, and that was it - job done!
I left RD&E with a huge smile on my face, knowing I'd done some good. I took a leisurely ride home, filled up the tank and got home to a hero's welcome - cuddles from the kids and a lovely cup of tea.
