    As I've been busy since Vlad arrived I thought I'd take him to work with me tonight as I'm just moving the train tonight. Hopefully he will bring me some luck and get me home on time with no delays.
    This is his job tonight, the page will update as we travel so you can track him live and see how he is doing.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Finally a day off ! And as I live in the UK obviously its raining. I took Vlad out today for a quick look round the small town I live in . Oakham is a small market town in Rutland , England's smallest county .
    First order of the day is take Millie out for a walk , she's not allowed her ball at the minute due to a swollen paw, she's not amused.

    A trip into Town and to Oakham Castle. Not actually a castle as only the Great hall is left. It is tradition for visiting VIP's to present a Horseshoe to be hung on the wall.

    The castle is still occasionally used as a court , but the rather stuffy keeper of the Castle didn't let me put Vlad in the dock.
    The Horseshoes are hung this way up, most are hung the other way up , to stop the Devil building his nest in them . A very old tradition.

    A visit to the stocks next.

    By now the rain was getting worse so a few jobs in the High Street , not looking its best due to major roadworks . Unfortunately the Rutland flags are not that visible due to the weather. The sun dial is useless today.

    Sorry for the delay getting Vlad out but I've just been busy.
    Who wants to host him next? Anybody in the UK or is he off to drier climates?

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    I'm thinking a stop in Spain with Ticonderoga makes sense before he heads out to the States . I know Ticonderoga is very keen to host him.
    I will PM you .

    Good to see this thread moving again! I volunteered to have Vlad visit the Netherlands when his journey started, would still love to see him here someday, but like many I have other priorities currently. Keep him moving around folks!
