  1. Thanks all. We are still trying to decide. I really like the idea of hitting some of the state parks where an AS will go but the 5th wheel would get really tight in a hurry. And like @pop pop said, I really don’t like getting off at every other exit to feed the beast like when pulling the 5th wheel. Aerodynamics in the 90s did t seem to be their top priority.
  2. The cost seems to be THE negative side. Then again, I’ve seen on this forum the advice of “buy once, cry once” multiple times.
  3. We are thinking of downsizing to an airstream. As we are getting older, dragging a fifth wheel seems to be more of a chore. Who has airstream experiences to share? Mark
  4. I ordered a new truck in august 2019. Got email few weeks ago that it would be built in 2023. Not holding my breath yet.
  5. @Danger Rane https://www.fda.gov/media/144246/download This is the study data submitted by Pfizer to the fda. Curve on page 58 is a good visual representation of effectiveness of vaccine. Either way, I pray for us all and hope everyone stays safe
  6. @Danger Rane“The vaccine requires two shots to be effective, and has to be re-administered every year” sorry, this is incorrect. Per Pfizer data, curves start to diverge at 14 days. Yes a second dose at 21 days was used in the study and is what is planned. There is currently no plan for it to become a yearly vaccine. Might it? Absolutely. The studies are going to continue to monitor levels. So far, the data only goes out about 140 days.

    Masks??????

    This is an interesting read. They wrote a follow up article which I have copied and pasted below. I will attempt to attach the link but given my level of technical proficiency..... well we will see. “ We understand that some people are citing our Perspective article (published on April 1 at NEJM.org)1 as support for discrediting widespread masking. In truth, the intent of our article was to push for more masking, not less. It is apparent that many people with SARS-CoV-2 infection are asymptomatic or presymptomatic yet highly contagious and that these people account for a substantial fraction of all transmissions.2,3 Universal masking helps to prevent such people from spreading virus-laden secretions, whether they recognize that they are infected or not.4 We did state in the article that “wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection,” but as the rest of the paragraph makes clear, we intended this statement to apply to passing encounters in public spaces, not sustained interactions within closed environments. A growing body of research shows that the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission is strongly correlated with the duration and intensity of contact: the risk of transmission among household members can be as high as 40%, whereas the risk of transmission from less intense and less sustained encounters is below 5%.5-7 This finding is also borne out by recent research associating mask wearing with less transmission of SARS-CoV-2, particularly in closed settings.8 We therefore strongly support the calls of public health agencies for all people to wear masks when circumstances compel them to be within 6 ft of others for sustained periods. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc2020836
  8. Those are further along than ours at the moment. They are hard to harvest. I know I pick several gallons just to get enough for a pie or two. The same thing happens with strawberries.
  9. @Lumber_Jack , all of our catalpa trees are around creek bottoms. Google doesn’t say that is a requirement. Is that just a fluke of our farm? mark
  10. I think Kevin Collins works Blount county. Google lists him as Collins land surveying. 865-577-1140. He has looked at multiple sites for me and has been quite helpful.
  11. Santayana would be proud @DaveTN
  12. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2020/04/21/838794281/study-raises-questions-about-false-negatives-from-quick-covid-19-test a quick little read to entertain you this morning.
  13. It should not be assumed to be a false negative. It is all in the context of the situation. Rarely do we (humans) make a decision based on a single point of information. The test is just one point of information. Symptoms, disease activity in the area, timing, and yes our own experiences all combine to form a picture. Do we get the picture wrong sometimes? Absolutely! However, when you see this number of deaths congregated, most likely you have a common cause. Have some of these deaths been from something other than covid. Probably. “Tens of thousands” is highly unlikely. Stay safe. A high percentage of us on here (older, male, other medical issues) are at greatest risk with this thing.
