I am putting this thread in the "General" section just because the "Off Topic Experiment" does not show up in the "Recent Treads" or "What's New".
So I doubt anyone would even see it if I placed it in the "Off Topic Experiment"
Honestly not even sure if anyone here will care for this thread or if some will get bent out of shape about it since it is not Motorcycle related.
I just thought it would be a good idea to have a thread to talk on the subject and possibly share ideas and links that may be helpful.
If the mods disagree then they can simply take it down......won't break my heart any.
Lets not turn this into an argument thread though, I put it up with intent that it be a positive.....not negative.
If you have questions or just want to talk about whats going on......feel free to do so.
If you have helpful ideas or links to places that may have hard to get items....feel free to post them up so others in this group may benefit from them as well.
A bit about myself and how this virus is effecting me and mine.
I am on a ship in the middle of the Bering Sea at the moment so I may be a bit out of touch compared to some of you.
But I am taking this event seriously.
Just today we had to stop production and take a crew member into St. Paul so they could get off the vessel because they were ill.
Did they have the virus......who knows. We do not have test kits and neither does anyone in St. Paul. All we can do is hope for the best or we will be stuck on this ship for quite a while.
My wife cares for her elderly (very sick) grandmother, so she cannot contract this virus or there would be no one to care for her grandmother. (or worse she would give the virus to her grandmother and that would have dire consequences)
So my family is all locked down at home and quarantined for the foreseeable future. They are good and I plan for them to say that way.
I saw this coming pretty early on and had them stock up and get prepared with adequate supplies to last for quite a while.
I know others who did not take this approach and are now starting to wish they did.
Stay safe out there.
