I signed up

Hello All,
Thanks for sharing this, I signed up on their Facebook page. If there becomes a need here in Georgia I would happily volunteer our home on wheels.

Enjoy the journey, even this part of it.

Steve

Is the July date you posted an actual mandated date or an educated guess ? ( Just curious )
We have a fishing trip booked for early June in Manitoba
The Canadian resort owner says the trip is a go and that the border will be opened in May
Not sure if he knows something that has not been made public or he’s just trying to hold on to our money as long as possible and BSing us .

Steve, Yesterday, we watched BC Gov officials telling us to expect months of restrictions lasting until the summer. Based on what we see about the US virus news, I’d be utterly surprised if the Canadian/US border was opened by May for anything but essential crossings.

What I’m seeing now is BC small town mayors asking people from larger metro areas to stay away “for now” citing lack of medical facilities/resources. I’d say your May fishing trip will need to be rescheduled.

Global news ....
“On Tuesday, B.C. health officials warned that some version of harsh restrictions that have been put in place to curb the spread of the virus would likely remain until “at least” the summer.“

Can certainly understand that. We were supposed to head down to Gulf Shores in 2+ weeks, and even though knew it was not going to happen, could not bring myself to cancel until today.

Beth, daughter and family would be at Disneyworld for the last of four days, I would be relaxing at the campground or maybe having a beer with Carl.

For those who need to follow the deadly progress of this pandemic virus here is a very good link.

I took particular notice of the column listing victims who have recovered. Compared to worldwide...not encouraging. Let us hope that stat will change for the better.

In China, it took about 2 weeks on average from admission for a patient to die, but 3 weeks to recover (and sometimes longer to no longer be shedding virus.) So we expect a lag in deaths but a bigger one in recoveries.

Looks like a number of states don't report serious or recovered numbers. NJ had 183 deaths today but has no serious cases.
