Hope is a wonderful sentiment, but a lousy breakfast.

So... what is the herd thinking? I just found out that tomorrow at work we are all getting "official letters" for our pickups stating that we are essential agricultural/transportation employees for the possibility of checkpoints or random stops. Is this going to get that serious?

Well guys, long story short. One of our drivers informed us today that his wife is a nurse and got put in quarantine yesterday. We told him not to come to work tomorrow. We have been washing hands, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes everywhere. Needless to say, I'm a little nervous. I will not be coming to the shoot. I'll miss you guys but with the above story, if I got infected i don't want to be around anyone.

We have canceled the upcoming work weekend, and the shoot weekend is up in the air at the moment depending on whether our (ahem) governor decides to extend his stay at home order.

Posting this per instructions from 12v71-

What are thoughts from the Tribe regarding moving the event
to April 30- May 3?

This gets us past the current travel / association restrictions, et cetera.


Please post.

Aye.

ETA on April 2

I have to amend my post to add that I already have a tentative engagement on May 1st that I had forgotten.

That said, I will have to decide which to do as we get closer to the date and see how things develop.

I was anticipating this. Those statements by politicians are so ironic it hurts.

I will miss seeing my friends at Dave's Gulch this Spring.

I'm thinking we should just ride it out. Hopefully things will be back in place by the June shoot in Oregon and we can catch up in the fall up here. Or July, or...

At this point, unless something drastically changes (for the better) I think you're right.

Im praying your reigning tyrant doesn't go full retard and lock down the boarders as well.

Damn boarders. Always stay too long and drink the last beer.

Our reigning tyrant will probably soon follow. She's not much of a leader.

I've heard nothing about this.

And as a matter of fact, a friend of Lisa's that works at Starbucks said her store re-opened a couple days ago...

" We asked the governor's office for clarification.

It says that in Oregon, temporary rules may be effective for up to 180 days unless the governor says otherwise, and in this case she has.

For now, her order is only in place through April 14. It restricts restaurants to takeout and delivery."
