Bored at home. Thinking of getting a quad. Used to have a Grizzly. Maybe settle for a Kodiak. Run down to the park with a cooler

Yeah.  This sucks.   My wife is laid off and she is being told that she won’t be back to work for at least a month.   I am a Realtor and am essentially out of business right now as no one wants to have strangers in looking at their house nor do they want to go out and look at new houses.   
 

And now the trails are closed.

Myself and my crew of 4 decided to stay open for now. We actually have enough work for about the next 4 days. After that, i have no idea. We discussed mabye rotating days off to avoid completely shutting down. 

Wife, kids and neighbors are all off and bored already...going to be a long couple months.

We've been self isolating for a week now, except for a run to the hospital on Tuesday. We had to call ahead to avoid the lineup to get in due to them screening everyone on the way in but other then that things seemed normal. We have a weeks worth of food left, trying to decide when we should stock back up

I agree to do everything that is recommended but try to carry on with some sort of activities. My huge concern is I sure as hell don't want to be needing to go to the hospital with an injury. Chainsaw work can wait and driving is at a minimum except North Bay to get our daughter from university now. Gonna be a windy ride tomorrow

Agreed Crispy. Lets all work together. Next season will be here before you know it, and we need this coronavirus GONE,  before then.  Everyone take care, stay calm and be patient.  We will get through this.

Yes. We got thru SARS and the H1N1 (which I don't recall as much). I'll be self-isolating in the shop & sled shed. Need to make a couple of mods to the hand guard brackets for next season.

Me too, country is great now. We have only left for essentials. Got wood chipper rebuilt and ready for spring clean up today. That will keep us busy until grass cutting starts. I still have manure spreading to do too. Ordered a truck of bedding from Quebec and was glad they can still bring me a tractor trailer load of shavings. People have to eat after all. Stay safe everyone!
