And you can't fly anywhere either. How many camp sites are going to close too. Maybe the bigger sites will stay open but I suspect the CLs and CSs will be closing for the duration. Looks like we'll all be fighting for pitches or camping on the driveway.

Don't give up and don't let the buggers grind you down.
