I still think motorcycling checks most of the boxes. Plenty of social distance, gloves, helmet to guard against others sneezes and coughs. If I can just get the weather to cooperate. 

I agree 💯

Membered it. Have typed so many others so many times I lost the muscle memory that usually handles it.

I have it at work but still have 2 factor VPN to do. @ home I enter it so rarely. Was just loading from the play store for the first time in months.

Indiana's two week lockdown started today. Judging by all the traffic in front of my house though, you wouldn't know it.

Only "essential" businesses are supposed to be open, but I got an email from the local Honda/Kawasaki store listing their altered hours. Yeah, a motorsports store is essential. 😂

It is transportation and maintenance.

With sufficient effort, almost any business owner can justify his or her business as "essential."

Just ordered a small pizza to be delivered to my doorstep "contact-free" by Master Pizza at 10:00 this morning. Twenty fucking dollars. I feel like a fool.

But you are supporting the buisnesses and keeping people working...

I heard in NY they are telling infected healthcare workers to keep coming to work but wear more ppe.

That's insane, but I believe it. Some medical schools are allegedly allowing students to leave the program before graduation so they can help out at hospitals.

Get out to the suburbs for your stuff if you need to. The GE on 77 and 82 for example is in pretty good shape stock wise. I also have found early afternoon is a good time to go, they have had time to restock and not a lot of people there. Also you, or anyone that is nearby....we could always work together to get stuff if needed. I can buy it, leave it beside my house and you can come get it. I will collect on the handy when this is all over.

I hate buying toilet paper and paper towels all the time so always have at least a few months supply in stock at all times. Turns out that worked well for me in these times , even payed it forward.

"If everybody's got it anyway, who cares." is probably the mindset.
