No, I passed you on the way. :-)

You're not north. It's still somewhere beyond you. That's all.

Anyway, I'm told that it's grim up north, and the area round Hadrian's Wall
is anything but, so I dispute that you're in the "north" of legend.

(The flipside is when you're driving from London to Newcastle, and around
Leeds you still have one third of the distance to go. Therefore Leeds isn't
really north.)
