A week ago we took a 200 mile trip to a camp ground in Cumbria, it's 8 mile from the English/ Scottish border, mostly motorway which is freeway to you guys, looked at Gretna Green last week which is in Scotland, do a search....  marriage rules changed in England but not in Scotland hence people ran away to Gretna. Took a look at lake Windemere where Donald Campbell died in Bluebird. Today we went to Hadrians wall which was built in the 1st century by the Romans as their furthest northern frontier stretching from Carlisle on the western coast to near Lindesfarne on the east coast, 80 Roman miles or 73 modern miles long, 15 feet high with forts and milehouses  every mile for defence. It's not 15ft tall now though.  Still got a week to go. Truck is ok but sprung a diesel leak on the head return line on the drivers side next to trans at a clip..... siliconed and pushed it back into the clip, it's a fractured steel line but it's not leaking now

A lot of places like pubs and possibly the boat which is on lake Windmere are running at less than 50% capacity due to distance requirements set out by gov. We went to a pub yesterday only 1/2 mile from Housestead fort on the wall in a small village, we just got in for Sunday lunch, guy on the door checking temps and addresses for covid tracing, pub was empty  but full to allowed capacity. Strange village really, just on one road but called Once Brewed from one direction and Twice Brewed from other direction, pub is called Twice Brewed and brews its own beer, several possible reasons why, the best I think is .....

There was a civil war here called The War of the Roses between Yorkshire and Lancashire, story goes that one side complained that their fighting beer was too weak so they brewed it twice before a large battle, it worked they won

Been brewing beer on the site since the 15th/16th century

I did think about metal detecting on Hadrians wall and specifically about something you said regarding ancient monastries on our trip last year to North Yorksire which btw is only 80 odd miles away from where we are now... narrowest part of England from coast to coast hence the wall to keep out the Beserkers from the elite Roman empire 2k years ago.

👍on the truck and 5th. It is a challenge on our roads but wouldn't change a thing, got a nice tow tune and just got a @Me78569 stock injector tune on the quad and truck is good, a few things for thought on both truck and 5th namely trans on the truck and secure area outside of 5th for our dogs, one of which is an Old Tyme English Bulldog which is a recreation of an ancient bulldog bred to fight bulls which went extinct 200 or so years ago, soft as grease but not too bright, intelligence is not required when your sole purpose is to hang off of a bulls nose.. hence the secure area 😁
