  1. It is a completely new strain, so effectively a new virus. Immunity to previous strains does not carry over. There is no immunity to Covid-19. That some have been exposed to it (to what extent?) without apparently being infected (there is a wide range in the way different people respond) does not mean they have immunity. That is the message from our government's experts. There is no point in playing down just how serious it is. I will leave the subject there.
  2. It is a novel virus: it is new and so there can be no existing immunity to it. This is the clear advice from our experts who have long and distinguished experience of dealing with viral issues around the world.
  3. They don't need to. They are exempted from the EU/Schengen ban.
  4. Covid-19 is not flu. There is some immunity to flu in the population but Covid-19 is a novel virus and there is zero immunity to it. It is much more dangerous than flu and to downplay that is not helpful.
  5. We have seen the lights on several occasions in several different locations and have seen green, silver (grey?) and red with the naked eye. Beautiful!
  6. You were lucky. We lived for three months in a brown paper bag in a septic tank. For those who haven't a clue what this is about... https://www.google.co.uk/url?q=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3DVKHFZBUTA4k&sa=U&ved=2ahUKEwiRjfOfqvHdAhUL04MKHUOKAqwQtwIwAXoECAoQAQ&usg=AOvVaw2pOZi8mgnSO9FQtj6RJDB0
  7. AKA the Yorkshireman sketch. We're not all like that though. Well, not quite.
  8. Don't forget that the presence of stabilisers doen't mean you will feel their benefit in all weather. If there's ice around then they are tucked out or harm's way rather than allow the ice to remove them!
  9. So four have wasted their time as, for those who are not hard-of-reading, the first observation was clear enough. Confusion? Dates are quite clearly displayed. A year old? Then why bother to keep coming back to add nothing other than an expression of your disapproval which not everyone shares? And I really must leave it there. There is little point in continuing with someone who appears to want to regulate CC and who is unable to accept that there is more than one point of view.
  10. Access to medical help in Antarctica is neither easy nor speedy (it's very different from the Arctic) and self-declaration of fitness to travel there is not a good idea. It would be a pity if you were to deprive yourself of Antarctica because you were averse to having to visit a doctor to review your medical history and have your fitness to travel assessed.
  11. Drake Lake on each of our trips. Lake, or Shake, you won't know until the time and it's not worth worrying about: it's what happens on the way to the most amazing place.
  12. But you have repeatedly responded in this thread, which you view as dead, and added no 'relevant up-to-date information that helps other CCers'. Despite your assertion, the thread does link to another thread and so provides a more complete picture of an issue, an issue which may repeat when weather affects travel plans as it often does. Best to leave it there as I have better ways to spend my time.
  13. Is it really that important? Or is this how to increase post count into the 20 thousands!
  14. There is new information in the thread as it now links to another which tells another side of the same complaint. It may be a year old but that doesn't mean it's not useful to anyone undertaking some research. That's why old threads are left available and not deleted.
  15. Because that thread references this thread and shows that the problem wasn't quite the disaster it was presented as.
