My travel plans

travel journey

Phase 1 of my travel starts on Monday 15th October and I’ll be travelling 4369 miles from South Uist to USA and Canada.

I will be based in Portland Maine from 17-31st October and Quebec from 4th-12th November with some site seeing in between, I will update you as I travel.

In preparation for the trip I made contact with Rob Smith, Chuck Lubelczyk and Peter Rand who are based in Maine and all have extensive knowledge and experience working on ticks and tick borne diseases, I am very fortunate as they have agreed to support and help me during my trip.

Rob visited South Uist in May while in Scotland and Graham, Rob and I took the opportunity to visit Locheynort and do a bit of sheet dragging.

 This is what we collected

Over 200 ticks were collected in a couple of hours.

Rob, Charles and Peter have some field work plans for me while in the USA.
