  1. How you holding up Dave? Any cases of the Covid 19 in your neck of the desert?

      Damn, all it takes is one AH to ruin it for an entire town!

      We haven't been around anyone and have been isolating our mail for a week before opening it just to make sure. With the wife being pregnant, she is considered high risk. All packages we receive are all disinfected before we bring them inside. It's such a PITA and I am probably overreacting, but better safe than sorry. 

      I drove through Sparks and all the warehouse parking lots are full, so they continue to work as normal. Going to make things much worse.

      There are people in town who still think this virus is a Democrat inspired hoax and cough and sneeze in public and pick fights with anyone who will spar and argue with them. Sickening.

      WTF, people are seriously that stupid?? What a shame, hopefully they don't have to find out the truth the hard way. 

  2. I just signed up and want to access Death Valley themed images that you, DAW89446 have archived here but I can't seem to navigate to the correct section of this forum. Any links or further instructions are appreciated. My intentions are for hobby only and not for publications or monetizations of any kind. My own YouTube channel is hobby only as well. Thanks in advance.

      I have never used a cloud service, only dedicated servers. Removing the site is an idea we are kicking around depending on whether or not there will be activity on the forum. If the forum is going to be a dead forum, no reason to keep it online. 🙂

      Bob, my comment about my images in the cloud was not intended to point fingers at you, inferring that you would exploit them. My removal of the images were in case you did terminate the EWU forum. I have no idea of where these images would go to. I assume those images I shared with the old EF forum have evaporated, but it seems that some mirrored pages can be found if one dug deep enough. My images I referred to that have been used by others by removing my name and inserting theirs, or claiming credit, were not in anyway connected to you. If I have angered or offended you, my apologies.

      No offense taken at all, I just wanted to make sure you know that we do not use any type of cloud services, so when the server goes out, everything is deleted. Most likely we are not going to delete this site, it was just an idea we were kicking around and of course we would give people ample time before we took it off line. There was a reason that I can't yet reveal as to why we were considering getting rid of the forum. To be 100% honest, I don't see us taking the site off line anytime soon. The problem has been resolved, so that was something we were considering based on what we were dealing with at that time. Of course if the site ends up dead with no activity, I wouldn't see any reason to keep a dead forum online, but it sounds like the majority of forum users are enjoying the community. 🙂 

      No matter what, if we ever closed down the forum, we would give at least a months notice to everyone. I imagine this site will be online for a long time. 

  3. WHO declared the virus as a pandemic. The President’s tone was quite subdued during his address to the nation an hour ago and has acknowledged it is here instead of denying, minimizing, blaming or accusing the news media. Another news source says that effects may be up to ten times worse than the flu. And 20,000 have died in the US this flu season. I wondered about the TP angle, why people are hoarding it. The Reno morning news stated it is because of fears of quarantine or restricted movement. I wonder if such fear also covers food and medication. If they don’t think ahead, they won’t need TP. Nothing in, nothing out ...
  4. Today he was blaming “a past administration” for the lack of preparedness for the spread of Corona virus. One of his aids stated that there are millions of test kits shipped and millions more being shipped. Yet hospitals have no kits. And to date only 5,000 tests have been done in the US. That is a fraction of daily tests done in South Korea. And he’s being mum about his health, yet still claims that he needs no testing for the Corona virus. I guess he will simply tell it that it’s fired and it will go away.
  5. The effect of UV rays from sunshine was specifically mentioned. As well as fresh air outdoors.
  6. Due to my age and its effects on the bones, my doctor suggested D3 and it has been part of my daily regimen.
  7. Last week one of the morning news shows had a piece on how being outdoors is far safer as to the virus. It was said that the sun UV rays kill airborne virus.
  8. Panic buying has hit little ol’ Winnemucca. My wife went to Walmart this morning and said that they were out of TP, hand sanitizer, bleach. I later went to our new Grocery Outlet and they confirmed they have felt the affect of panic buying. I agree with the above advice about the real priorities. Why bottled water when I have a perfectly tasty and safe well. And unless they shut down the power grid for days, I can get water at any time. And so, I bought a gallon of bleach because we needed a gallon. And some TP because my wife says I’m full of ... well, you know ... Nevada now has confirmed cases of the virus. And the cruise ship that docked in Oakland today released 15 northern Nevadan’s back home into the state with orders to quarantine. I wasn’t concerned much, just watching. But now that it’s spreading more, I’m getting concerned. Because I’m in the at risk population - old and with emphysema (never smoked, got it working at the borax refinery near Death Valley for two decades). But I’m still in the wait and see mode. Winnemucca, being on Interstate 80, is a pipeline of humanity from both coasts. All it takes is one to stop for gas and a burger and it’s here. It’s probably been here already for a while. Now Washington DC politicians are self quarantining. The news tonight said that even the President has come in contact with a carrier. But then, he claims to be perfect, has a perfect plan, so he can make us all suddenly perfectly healthy in an instant, right? For some reason I have a hunch he’s going to blame it on Democrats and heads at the CDC will roll because the virus didn’t flee the US when they were told to snap their fingers ... And the stock market plummeted due partly to fallout virus fears. And the cruise industry is predicting dire circumstances for the foreseeable future. So, I remember everyone thought this was a fake news hoax and conspiracy theory at the beginning of this thread. But folks, it’s knocking on our doors. Good health to us all.
  9. High price overlanding seems to be all the rage. Take a high price vehicle, add lots of high priced bling and a wet bar, and go cruising the boulevard and gloat as if you had just returned from some exotic part of the globe. But I think actually most park in a KOA and try to look privileged.
  10. Toyota trucks converted to Dolphin campers were very popular in the 1980s and 1990s. There should still be plenty around for cheap.
  11. Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Butchart Gardens is magnificent. Spent a couple weeks in 1998. At the time $1 bought you $2 Canadian. Price structure was similar to the States, so basically everything half price. Hillside cabin overlooking the Sound for $30 a night, steak and lobster at the inn across the road $8. I’ve got photos from that trip on my gallery here: https://ewucrew.com/index.php?/gallery/album/36-daw89446-western-canada/
  12. I haven’t heard of about 85% of the TV shows listed. And the majority of the rest sound unappetizing ...
  13. I haven’t watched sitcoms since the 1970s. The only current shows I watch, beside the news, is Blue Bloods and 60-Minutes. I record Blue Bloods so I can zap the commercials. I get my TV off the air (translator), and get ION, so I also record the original Law & Order and L&O Criminal Intent.
  14. Now the US death toll up to six.
