    I was living in Northern Virginia then and it was amazing. I was out with the dog one night and I noticed the grass in our front yard was wiggling. A closer look revealed hundreds if not thousands...

    So true. I think the thing that strikes me the most about this pandemic is the collision between individual desires and societal responsibility. The debate about thru hiking in the time of...

    You and I are going to have to agree to disagree. I believe you are making false assumptions about the spread of this disease but there is no point arguing about that. Old people who have...

    325 million x 0.1% = 325,000 dead people. 325 million x 0.5% = 1,625,000 dead people. Hardly comparable to traffic deaths. Yes it is an ethical decision whether to do what you can to prevent...

    Using your bandanna as a pre filter is a good idea when you are using chemical treatment. Chemical water treatment doesn't work well in water that is cloudy/visibly dirty.

    So much information out there that it is hard to keep up. I spend too much time reading about this stuff because I am stuck at home and I don't have enough to do. :)



    I didn't take it that way...

    You make some good points about using resources in rural areas if you get injured. My point was that if you are likely immune to the virus you would not be spreading it or getting ill from it on the...

    I have been wondering this same thing the last couple of weeks. What do you use to judge the degree of danger to yourself and others by being on the trail?



    I feel the same way and I wonder...

    The last I heard 20% of cases require hospitalization so rather than 100's who have recovered and are fine for every bad case it would seem more like 4 "mild" cases per serious one. Of course if a ...

    Up to possibly 25% of those infected with coronavirus are asymptomatic and can spread the virus. Don't assume those hikers are virus free because they aren't showing symptoms.
