Re: Covid-19

In China they are starting to open malls with social distancing. Maybe that's what we have to look forward to, limited return to normalcy. Continued surveillance - expect it to flare up again and re-tighten. There are trials for several treatments including that malaria treatment. Likely they will i...

Re: Seeking: Volcano Viewpoints

Tam Mcarthur Rim trail - the Broken Top ridge is between you and the Three Sisters But, it's easy to find places where you can hike up to the ridge. I'm pretty sure you could find a good spot.
