I don't agree with most of what you said, but you're right that this is killing the economy and things need to get started. If you read what I said you will see I did not say we need to continue this lockdown. The state needs to open back up but people need to do so in a way that mitigates the risk for the most vulnerable. Herd immunity is likely the goal agreed upon by the powers that be behind closed doors, they just don't want to say that and cause panic. This lockdown was to keep the healthcare system from getting overloaded - goal achieved for now. Time to ease things back into open.

Exactly. It is a lack of resources situation.  Some people can't see past their own nose.

And THIS THIS THIS is why I don't generally post in such places or leave comments.  I didn't feel the need to prove anyone wrong so I just kept quite.  Now someone says i can't see past my own nose.  My last comment in this thread.

Of all the places, that place I will probably avoid the most during the early times of opening. People touching all the same shit, not wiping stuff down, and people huffing and puffing all that shit out of their lungs while they are working out.

I miss the gym just as much as the next person, I've been struggling because I would go 5 days a week without fail. I will still avoid that place for a while before I go back.

I cant even begin to imagine how much strength I've lost. I've pretty much been on a cardio diet.

I'm with you, I would go to our rec center five days a week to lift ...... I know it does not look like it 😃. I am very reluctant to go back for the reasons you stated. This is especially hard because the weather has been crappy, like today I won't ride the bicycle. I don't know when I will go back to the gym. On a positive note, I have ridden over 2K miles on the motorcycle in the last six weeks.

I dont have a street bike currently and my mtb has been out of commission since last week waiting for Nashbar to ship me my new tubes and rear tire. Ran this week. I have a love hate relationship with running. I hate running and love when its over.

I dont have a road going bicycle, but all of my local friends do. I really dont want to kill this rear tire like I did the last with a lot of road riding. Trying to think of a solution.

Prove who wrong? It is a resource issue. That isn't media. That came straight from the White House. I watched the news briefing where they said so.

Pauly was this a recent briefing? I’ve talked to medical personnel and read where people are being sent home because their services aren’t needed. It was my understanding that most hospitals have acquired additional ventilators as well. What are we lacking?

It's the ICU space, beds and environment. Hard to scale and easily overwhelmed. Much of the other medical staff particularly ambulatory staff are not being utilized due to the lockdown. That is why you're seeing medical layoffs of non critical care staff. I worked in the hospital for 10 years and my wife still does.

I'll tell you that bike is wicked fast, but your road riding buddies would hate you, they'd get almost no draft trying to ride behind you. :lol:

My gym is different. Crossfit is structured classes at specific times. We DO clean after every workout. I need weight training! I was going 6 days a week. 

I will go the first day it opens up.

Well, we are going to have to be more careful with each other now. Handy's only.

Ok... So.... It must be said....

Could this be the antidote? I can imagine all the men would be willing to let women test it....

Back to the kitchen I go.

As we go forward remember what a great philosopher once said about Germs and your Immune system.

I got a letter from a customer at work who said our lease payoff refund check letter wasn't warm and fuzzy enough due to legal language. It was the snarkiest, self-centered letter ever... She suggested we add a puppy... She even signed the letter from her and her dog and put a picture of it on there.... Who fucking complains about a refund check? 

As someone who writes customer facing communications for a major corporation, we have to say that shit like that or else people bitch that we don't care 🤷🏻‍♂️

I know I'm so excited! I was just talking about this with my riding buddy. We want to do an over night ride camping down in the Hocking hills area and hit a bunch of the southern roads.

Fire restrictions through June 30 here... Can't light a camp fire anywhere in this state even where it's 60 degrees... I was trying to go camping this weekend but NOPE.... On top of hot weather shutting down certain areas, all the national forests are closed in AZ, which considering its desert here may not sound like much, but the NFs are basically all of the camping... We have BLM land, national forest, local jurisdiction, and reservation and ALL are closed for either drought or coronavirus... CA, NV, NM, and UT all have similar restrictions.... I can go camping... In the dark with no fire.... I thought this was fucking 🇺🇸....
