There are a lot of tough questions out there. In my area mortgages are on hold, evictions are on hold. Drastic measures that we have never seen before.

RE: The camping industry is going to be hit hard

What we don't want is death. So far the "solution" does nothing to stop death. At best we are delaying it for a short time. A vaccine is likely 2yrs out...if we wait that long, the world economy won't be coming back...if we open up, cases will go back up. Sweden is taking a logical approach. Asking elderly and at-risk groups to isolate but the young and healthy, who have little risk, can go about their lives. Yes, there will be more cases initially but as the population develops immunity, the epidemic ends. We should be opening up low risk work as soon as possible to minimize the impact to the economy while protecting the vulnerable. Realistically we will hit a point where people will simply ignore the govt rules if they are unreasonable. A fundamental concept of law is it requires the vast majority to abide by it voluntarily...the mood is fast shifting as they aren't coming up with a long term solution.Exactly, that seems to be the point most people miss; and bears repeating. Sheltering in place does not stop the disease (remember rounding the curve), just delays it. A vaccine may mitigate it, but it won't be around for 2 years; if at all. Unemployment is real, there is no rounding of that curve.

RE: Should/will Glacier, Teton and Yellowstone open?

Unfortunately there are way to many stupid brain dead people that don't see it as the national emergency that it is. Thus putting all the intelligent people at risk.Those intelligent people that you reference, are those the one that predicted 2.2 milllion deaths in the US, then decided they were wrong and revised it to 1 Million, then 200,000, then 100,000, then 60,000; are those the intelligent people you're referring to? Or are you referring to the sheeple that believe everything they say? The Governors took away people basic constitutional rights based on proven flawed information. Then rather than admit they were wrong, they doubled down. "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." - Ben Franklin

RE: And Texas Caves In

US death rate hits a new record today. Not on the back side of the curve yet.By "death rate," do you mean total number of deaths? Total deaths from Covid-19 will hit a new record every single day, for months to come, simply because if 1 person dies it's a new high in the total deaths (a new record). So that's meaningless, although it sounds impressive at first blush.No. The rate is the daily rate. Total is total. 2035 died yesterday in the US. That is the highest daily rate recorded to date.But, there were 33,752 new cases yesterday, 12,000+ less then the day before. Deaths lag the onset of Covid by at least a week. You can expect the number of deaths to increase for a week, even though the number of cases (the backside of the curve) and the number of hospital admittance's are steadily declining.

So that's meaningless, although it sounds impressive at first blush. The more people that get the disease, the more people will die. When less people get the disease, there will be less deaths from the disease. What's so hard to understand about that? Until we have accurate testing with almost immediate results available to the entire public we cannot restart the economy. I'm all for restarting the economy ASAP but the restart can't be based on the simple fact that people are broke. A haphazard restart that allows the virus spread to rekindle itself is foolish.Meanwhile we have 16 MILLION people unemployed with some of them trying to decide if the should feed their family and be homeless, or have a home but no food. Pretty easy when you're as snug as a bug in a rug to say keep it shut down. When you lose the majority of your income the choices become a little more difficult.

Still waiting for the reliable data that 10's of millions of people will need a ventilator due to Covid-19. P.S. Diatribes don't suffice for reliable data

RE: And Texas Caves In

I've been wondering for several pages when the shut it down crowd thinks we should return to some sort of normalcy? No opinions on that? It seems there are limited choices. First continue the shut downs indefinitely. The end would come only with an effective treatment or immunization. Neither seems to be coming any time in the near future. Next would be to gradually lift the restrictions allowing the virus to spread but at a slower rate. That would mean the virus would eventually spread to hit at least half the population with a million or so deaths and tens of millions needing ventilators and intensive care. The economic costs of that level of care would be staggering to the economy. Take your pick. Thank you for stepping up with your view, you are the pioneer of your side of the debate. :) Hopefully some of the other folks are willing to also share their ideas?There is only a debate if you think 10's of millions will need a ventilator. There are no current reliable estimates to support that theory.

RE: And Texas Caves In

x20 - We've already screwed our kids and grandkids. Our generation should be real ashamed of the mess we have left them with. They'd be better off if the coronavirus took our whole generation out. So tell me how you know we are totally screwed. Honestly much in the way we have never quarantined the entire country. We have never deliberately created a financial crisis. How long will it take to recover financially? What will the financial recovery entail. From a financial perspective we are also in uncharted territory. Similar to the health aspects. We truly don't fully know how this plays out. I don't mean to imply there will no hardships. But we don't need to be ashamed that there was a pandemic. Pandemic was not a word the we created. Pandemic have happened before and I imagine they will happen again. One day when the dust settles the grand kids maybe grateful that we survived as well as we did!Oh Yes Indeed! Our grandkids are going to be oh so proud of us leaving them $24 TRILLION dollars in debt; they'll be dancing in the streets. And you being one that advocates for paying cash or doing without. My how the worm doth turn. (And we're about to slather that $24T with a bunch of chocolate frosting with this recession/depression and forthcoming bailouts) As if the budget was balanced before this all started.So how many lives you think all this save? Let’s be really generous and say 1 Million. Now a real conservative estimate of what this is going to cost is $3 Trillion. Of course if we don’t get the fast turnaround of the economy that number could easily double or triple real fast, but lets go with $3 Trillion. Now do the math, that’s $3 million dollars per life. So now you may say $3 M, saving a human life is worth that. No problem, that’s the right thing to do. The thing is, we spend $3 M dollars to save a life, but do we pay the bill, no we give the bill to our grandkids; just like we been doing for the last 50 years. Then we walk away all proud of how noble we’ve been. You want to be noble and save lives, pay the bill! Don't buy what you can’t pay cash for, right Lantley.

RE: And Texas Caves In

...Hopefully those suffering financially can find a way to recover and get back on their feet or just get things back in normal order (myself included). Bankruptcy hasn't stopped others from getting to the top. ;)That is the most crass statement I have read in the last 10 pages. 10 Million people lost there job in the last 2 Weeks. Let that sink in for a minute. Hope you feel that way about the people who could care less about everyone else's health and complain about the effort to curb this. My reply wasn't meant to be crass so I apologize if it came off that way. Like I said, I've been affected in this way as well. Thankfully not as much as others. There was some sarcasm for a specific situation at the end, and maybe it was in poor taste. For that I apologize as well. Bankruptcy isn't fun, can be devastating, and should be a last resort. However, it's not the end of the world, death is.I don’t think anyone “could care less about everyone else's health". People like me are very supportive of social distancing and other measures to fight coronavirus. We also will likely continue such measures well into the future. However, the fight against coronavirus is coming at a heavy economic cost. These costs can not be ignored. They can be deferred, but sooner or later they are going to inflict a heavy toll, especially to the less fortunate. And the longer the economic costs are deferred or given short shrift, the bigger and bigger the toll gets. When I read your post, this is what it said to me: “f*** those that lost their jobs (hope they find another one), but the only thing that matters is how many people die” – (even if they are old and have other serious medical condition and will probably die in 5 years anyways) – the last part is the add on that my mind immediately went to. How many people die matters, but so do the 10 – 30 million people that lose their jobs. They also have a life to live, as do their wives and kids who are depending on them. There has to be balance, and I for one think people are not giving balance enough thought.

RE: Just bought my first travel trailer

I think it is in your best interest to read and understand what all the weights mean and what all the numbers mean. For instance, you can get an F150 that will handle that trailer just fine. You can also get an F250 that that trailer could exceed the trucks ratings. Both of those statements are absolutely true. So understanding what all those numbers mean is important. Clicky

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Imperial College report about where this "could" go if strict controls aren't kept in place. I think this is the type of technical data people need to be studying rather listening to the media heads drone on and point fingers. Listen to the experts. Imperial College ReportWell it looks like once the scientist with all these predictions got in front of the British Parliament, he decided maybe his predictions were way off-base. Clicky
