Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – June 2020

 

Again... this should be interesting.

Perhaps you can post on a new book you're reading, a new hobby you're taking up or about random finds as you finally get around to cleaning out the...

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

Please keep comments polite.

Motorcycle Ride

Michigan governor is finally allowing some restaurants to open. Morning meet up with a group of about (30) motorcyclists - broke into smaller groups of 5 or 6 and went on a short ride (480 miles round trip) around the central part of the state.

this will sound strange

good ol' Delaware! I mean it's not far, but it was closed to out-of-staters up until I think 6/1. Not sure how that worked, meaning we would have been asked to self-quarantine, but how is that verified...

Windmill

Restrictions starting to lift.You can now have up to 10 people in a personal group. You can not belong to more than 1 group.Malls open and most stores.

Todays Trip

Queens NY visit family

just around town

Ran over to costco to p/u an apple watch but they were out. ran over to another that had one. on way home, had to reroute to avoid protest march through our small town's downtown/main street. otherwise, uneventful.

wife and i discussed the timing of the march. it was starting at 4pm and temps were in the 90's. i would have thought they would start in the morning so that it wouldn't be as hot since our sky has zero clouds today.

No trips, but!

Discovered that the battery in my Dash Cam has died. Wouldn't be able to remove it and show anyone any video, if needed.

Found a video on YouTube on how to replace it and with which battery. Ordered one on Amazon for $5.89 USD and it will be here tomorrow.

Now I just have to find my soldering iron and the Rosin-Core solder.

I think I paid about $85.00 for it 3 years ago (with a rear camera). And I don't want to go through the hassle of installing another model by removing panels, etc.

crossed the county line, very exciting!

Caming!!!

Went camping for 6 nights. Went up to the Modoc National Forest. Modoc County has had ZERO cases of cooties. We got most of the way to the first campground when it started snowing. It's freaking JUNE in California! Got to the campground and it was 34 degrees and snowing. We camped anyway. Spent 3 nights there. Only one other person at the campground and she was down at the other end of the campground. (No snow after the first day and it got warmer.) Spent the next 3 nights at a different campground where we were the only people. 6 days and nights with no cell service. No people. No news. It was GREAT!

Back in February, I won the lottery to hike The Wave in upper Arizona (on the Utah border). The date of the permit was June 1. We left Long Island on the prior Tuesday and drove through until Friday evening. We spent the next few weekend days hiking around Kanab, Utah. We hiked The Wave on the first, and headed back home on Tuesday. Unfortunately, the pandemic was now the lesser of our concerns. We now had to contend with curfews and possible rallies/protests along the way. We survived unscathed, fortunately.

How did the Covid-19 pandemic affected our cross-country roadtrip? That was a question that I had myself, even before I left NY. When I went to the Wyndham rewards website, they assured travelers that all of their properties for the most part were open with some changes made due to the Covid pandemic. Facemasks are required in the lobby and most public areas. Breakfast if served, would be served by the staff to the patrons. There will no longer be open buffets where you can just walk up and grab food. Some places did not even have the breakfast option. It surprised us that businesses were open for indoor seating west of the Delaware Water Gap area. We were able to sit inside almost all of the restaurants, albeit the choices of establishments were more slim, all the way across until we got to Utah and then back. Depending on where you were in the country though, not all establishments required their workers to wear facemasks. Way out in the sticks in western Colorado at a steakhouse we visited, not everyone was wearing masks. Most other places though, masks are being worn by the staff, and everything was being cleaned in between seatings.

As far as weather went, we had a little bit of rain the second day on the way out. Otherwise, it was clear sailing. We had a little cloud cover in the Gary, Indiana area on the way back and it threatened, but it never rained on us there.

On our way through the pass in Colorado just past Denver, we spied an 8 to 10 mile back up on the eastbound side due to construction. We were cringing the entire time out in Utah knowing we would have to sit through that on our way home. When we finally did leave Silverthorne, Colorado that day, we were amazed to see that the traffic pattern had shifted, and the blockage was now on the westbound side. Those poor souls had 4 to 5 miles worth of bumper-to-bumper to get over the pass that we went sailing through a week before. Life on the road is good!

As we were returning home, we had to shift our dynamic a little bit. Due to the George Floyd incident and all of the protests going on in mostly major cities, we decided it best to only be on the road during daylight hours - no late night driving. As we approached the larger cities, we would Google protest and the name of the city. If there was a positive hit, we would park ourselves on the outskirts before sunset and deal with going through in the morning. Also because of the fact that many cities had curfews, we felt it was safer to hunker down before it got past sunset. That worked fine for us, and we had absolutely no problems whatsoever.

Off to Newport Beach tomorrow ...

... for a day trip with my niece. We're going to try our hand at kayaking the canals there, then find a good place for a bite to eat. If anyone has an idea for a nice casual lunch spot in that general area I'd be grateful for the suggestion!

Good morning

Have a great new week everyone
