Re: Covid-19

million dead by month end in the USA has not been trotted out anywhere by anyone, or even speculated on from a variety of news sources, medical experts, and reddit discussions, except right here. So regardless of your math, imo it's kind of an inflammatory number to arrive at/speculate on. we'll see...

Re: Covid-19

You can say it's someone's opinion or whatever.. I love going after loopholes and trying to figure out under what authority rules can be made, enforced, etc. But most of the time it's some half-cocked semi-capricious policy, intending to address a long standing cultural/behavioral issue through usin...

Re: Covid-19

Nik Blosser's words are entirely hollow as section two of the order, listing places that can stay open lists coffee shops, cafes, bars, taverns, wine bars, etc, as long as they do take out and practice social distancing. Nothing about any of those are essential/can't be replaced by grocery/restauran...

Re: Covid-19

Well, actually unless we can "flatten the curve", our medical system will decide who lives and who dies (essentially your "death panels"). That was the point I was getting at. My post was intended to sound inanely ridiculous. Yet here we are, facing death panels with our "superior non-socialized me...

Re: Mt Mcloughlin in winter

have not but have heard it is a pretty mellow outing overall. Longish day but not bad.

I'd be curious to hear any feedback as well. I think Jessbee had a TR or maybe a blog writeup on it.

Re: Central Cascades permit fees announced

I am told at the west side RAC meeting yesterday the FS has entirely scrapped the additional fee plan: FS announced that the fee proposal has now been completely pulled off the table and may or may not be revisited in the future. If and when it is ever revived they will be starting from scratch with...

Re: Central Cascades permit fees announced

burn/destroy/hide the piece the FS is supposed to get. That'll show 'em! :roll: precisely, if you remove the data they want to collect, it will show them the exact end we should all desire, aka: 1 less person walking in an area that they will use against the public to restrict access. The entire CC...
