Nov. 5th update (JT)

Quick update.

Hello all,

Lets start with a few answers to some questions we have been getting:

Yes we are keeping up with the election. They cover it here like they cover it there.

Yes we were able to vote before we left.

I have also been asked about the up coming UK lock down and how that is going to effect us. The short answer is: it really is not going to effect us and here is why. Well, it is England that is locking down, not the whole UK. Looks like we got out of London just in time. The UK is Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Each place decide how they are going to handle COVID.

We are currently in Inverness Scotland (The highlands). Scotland uses a 5 tier system to rank levels of infection and degree of lock down. Tier 5 is the worst- Full lock down.

No place in Scotland is at tier 4 or 5. We are currently in a tier 2 area, and on Wednesday we will be heading to a tier 1. We are heading to the Orkney Islands for about 10 days. The Orkneys are North of the Scottish mainland. During those 10 days we will be picking our new home for the next several weeks and staying put for a bit. We might stay in the Orkneys or go back to a place we have already been to. Not sure yet.

So as far a COVID goes, we will be in one of the safest places in the world.

That is it for the update. I promise to drink some Scotch for everyone. It is the least I can do!!!!!

Good night all
