I hope this column finds everyone well and maintaining their sanity during the pandemic. Speaking strictly for myself I am ready for things to open up but, I do understand the caution. SORTA, to a point. As I write this I am watching a Senate hearing in regard to the Pandemic and the possibility of the relaxation of sheltering on both the Federal and State levels and I am still as confused as politicians.
That being said, the song remains the same. Until some level of “normal” returns to us, our club activity will remain as it has been the last 2 months. All we can do is be patient and hope the opening of the economy comes soon. I know that even places one might camp such as KOA’s are closed to all but “essential workers” whoever that is out in the woods. ALL state campsites as well as picnic areas and rest rooms are all still closed. I’ve checked. To get out, I do venture out on the bike for social separation rides. Traffic for the most part is quite light and places like Downieville and Sierra City are close to ghost towns. Wild. The day rides are beautiful and helpful but I’m looking forward to pitching a tent somewhere. ANYWHERE!
Things are slowly beginning to open up in phases. Looking forward to phase 4.
So, while I wait for that to happen, I’m gonna change my oil today in the GS and get ready for the day, hopefully sooner rather then later, when I/we can enjoy each other’s company for a nice lunch together and a much needed camping trip as RCB! It WILL happen.
Take good care and I look forward to seeing you all very soon!
