    Yeah, we felt pretty good when we were camping in the desert as there were few people around, but it was a little unnerving being out on the road not knowing what would be shut down next. We would call ahead to National Monuments and such. The answer that we usually got was that 'we are presently open, but that could change in a minute'. The Navajo Nation went into shut down while we were in the Navajo Nation, though it was unclear what that really meant. We were refused a camping spot at a private campground because we were car camping. It seemed strange, but then I figured it was because we did not have a self contained bathroom even though we were right beside an outhouse.

    The campground probably had already lost rolls of TP to transients just like you. You should have rolled in with TP on your radio antenna....

    At the Wuertz Hammer In, we were joking about how no one had stolen the tp or hand sanitizer out of the porta jon. Of coarse that was several days before people started getting really worried.

    I ride horses and the consensus in the horse community is SHAME on you if your whole barn isn't closed throughout this whole ordeal. My trainer managed to find a way to still provide lessons off-sight. We're out in the open away from anyone so no real contact with others, technically socially distanced It's not like riding has you glued to people in the first place.

    This has been a very interesting phenomena to watch and I think it's somewhat of a paradox. As many of you have eluded to, I firmly believe that the number of total people infected is in the order of hundreds of thousands, if not millions. No way can the U.S., with a population of more than 350 million people, have only 80,000 cases. Since we can't test 350 million people, we are unable to use numbers or statistics. Therefore, it's nearly impossible to possess an accurate case fatality rate. We could very well be dealing with something with a case fatality rate less than the flu, yet the media is consistently focusing on those who have died, making it much worse than it seems. On the other hand, people of all ages have been dying from this virus so we can't exactly take it easy and continue on as if nothing has happened.

    Seeing how different communities handle this has been interesting. The equestrian community is obsessed with lock down and is quick to give you a very hard time if you even think of going to your barn to ride. This forum/community and another forum I'm on for hunting/rifles seem to be much more relaxed about it. Not reckless mind you, but also not OCD.

    This video popped up elsewhere, but I like succinct and credible teachers. He explains much of what we know now. He's learned what he says by surviving the daily world of Covid19 and not getting sick himself. For 3 months. There's good bits of need to know stuff in here.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci now believes that 100,000 - 200,000 people in the U.S. could die from COVID-29, with millions being infected.

    There is much they don't know about this bug.

    I wouldn't be surprised if even those who are asymptomatic or have very mild cases sustain serious lung damage and years from now will feel the effects from it.

    Do we actually know if the current total reported infected and reported dead are actually confirmed? Who is substantiating these numbers?
